erickok (4913) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2016
Dark brown, misty body, large head. Very nice aroma, quite rich, anise, deep dark malts, whole wheat bread. Thick mouthfeel, especially for a Belgian brown. But I like it a lot! Well done recipe, very ’artisanal’ feel. (33cl bottle at Caroline’s in Liège)

jgb9348 (5428) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Dark brown coloured body with a very fast-fading head, only a bit of light brown bubbles a few seconds after pouring. Aroma of nuts, earth, raisins, figs, coffee, hazlenuts, dirt and a touch of mushrooms in the nose. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong meaty and mushroomy flavour up front with a defined nutty characteristic, some raisins and fig sweetness, but mainly a malty and very umami-related taste right after the sip. Aftertaste shows a relative mildness with only some nuts, caramel, toffee, earth and meaty flavour in the finish - relatively simple for the style, and especially this coming from the motherland of Belgium. Overall, a pretty disappointing beer in every sense - with the high ratings here, the carrying back home from Belgium and the short aging, all disappointing. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 30-June-2012 for €2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 30-November-2015.

19/11/2015 - sample from a 75cl bottle @work tasting Hazy milk chocolate colour with small head. Nose is like an odd Dubbel. Taste is light roasted malts, spices, some bitter hops coming through, little sweetness, some earthy and herbal notes.

77ships (6917) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Modeste 2015. Red fruit brown amber, little tanned head. Nose is ovelry herbal, cark, nasty candy & odd umami touch. Taste is overly sweet rotting fruit syrup & candy, caramel, burned herbs, fizzy. Thin & fizzy body with some caramel. Not much of a fan.

zacgillbanks (4007) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle from Spar supermarket, Rochefort, Belgium. Hazy mahogany brown coloured beer that pours with a large white foamy head. It has a very rich spicy dried fruit, currant and marzipan flavour with chocolate and spices on the finish. Very nice.

Short beige head with sweet cane sugar aromas. Brown colored body. Pleasant in mouth with candy hints in lightly roasted malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4065) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Brown ale in this series, basically a dubbel, with yeasty and caramelly character adorned with a fascinating spiciness and a coffee-like, mild roasted bitterness in the finish. Ideal after a walk in an autumn forest.

Een lekker bruin bier zoals het hoort te zijn, met een goeie smaak eraan. Ik vond het goed
