Petrus Double Brown Ale is a top-fermented dark beer. Brewed with pure spring water and carefully selected hops and malts. The dark beer with its subtle and slightly caramelized flavour is preferably served cool.

LIghtbrown look with offbrown head. Sweet, caramelly aroma and similar flavor. Berries, butter and very sweet-malty. Fruits, dried also, but a little sweet for my liking.

JoeinDahlem (1396) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2008
Dark, thickly brown beer, disappearing tan head. Malty nose has tart-cherry and wood impression from the yeast. Tastes only a little sweet to me, with a mild and interesting tartness and light bitterness. Soft mouthfeel and going a touch sweeter in the finish. Has a certain Bavik character that separates it from other "dubbels" or Belgian ales of similar strength and color.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Chestnut/red body, pristine tan pillowy head. Nose of marzipan, caramel, cherries, and brandy and/or rum. Really, the nose was quite a thick, sensual sweetheart. Intro gives us prickly carbination and flavors of cherry twizler, dried fruit, nuts, and bittersweet chocolate. Overall, it has a very candy-like presence and reminds me a hell of a lot like Ommegang. The malts are thick & luscious and this beer probably makes you cum when coupled with a nice cigar. My only problem is that it becomes cloyingly sweet and mundane if left to warm up too much, so i recommend this to be maintained at colder temps...probably above 50 degrees.

Borresteijn (5662) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2008
On tap. Extremely sweet and dry dark brown beer. Some dark fruits and roasted malts, but way too much sugar and sweetness. Not good.

legion242 (2343) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2008
A cloying sweetness belies an underlying sourness that melds into a sort of sweet and sour chicken effect. Not appetizing.

BelgiskOlklub (991) - Viby J, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Creamy head, brown hazy body. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet not very complex.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Dark ruby brown with a light soda tan head that hangs around for a while. A lightly wooden aroma paired with a sweet caramel seems to contrast with the appearance of this dark brown ale. Nice and creamy in the mouth with a smooth roasted character that is followed by a small amount of bitterness. Very drinkable.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Dark brown, with a shade of red. Malty toasty, brown sugar aroma. The same on the palate, pretty straightforward really. A bit of yeasty fruit. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, and the finish is sweet. I don’t know, but this just didn’t ring my bell. On a different note, it’s pretty funny that the last three ratings are from Albertans! How can you tell Petrus beers just arrived in Alberta?!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Very reddy dark brown with thin light brown head. Chalky cocoa marshmallow aroma. Tastes more like a dopplebock or milk chocolate stout. Lots of chocolate, not the usual Belgian flavours. Still an OK tasty brew.
