JorisPPattyn (8912) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
Very good cream-beige head, dense and stable, leaving textbook lace over red-shot dark brown beer. Sweetish caramel-toffee nose, roasted grains, slight coffee. Bitter, hoppy, near-metallic taste. Ground coffee powder. Again a tad metallic (stannum?) Very slick, near chewy; creamy-velvety texture; well-carbonated. Long bitterish aftertaste, with just a touch of stout acidity. Good brown beer, pleasing.

77ships (6512) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Dark brown, little head. Nose is massive licorice, touch chicory & herbs. Taste is massive licorice, cheap herbal coffee, leaves, touch pralines, dash chocolate in the back. Slick body. Basically just lots & lots of licorice. Not a bad beer but I am just not really into licorice.

Flanfl (441) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 4, 2015
Deep brown body, medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, multiple malts, liquorice, light dried fruits notes and roasted malt notes. You should leave it breath for a while to get all the aroma. Flavour of chocolate, dried fruits notes the whole on a fairly complexe malt backbone. Medium finish chocolaty finish, slightly dry and bitter. The whole beer doesn't puch with flavours and aromas, easy to drink and balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corkyrory66 (1115) - BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2015
« Brune anarchiste », dixit le brasseur, qui parle aussi plus sérieusement d’une « belgian brown ale », mais pour ratebeer, il s’agit bien entendu d’une « belgian strong », la catégorie fourre-tout … Plusieurs malts d’orge et malts de blé, houblons divers (et non d’hiver …). Le niveau abv est de 8 %, et non 8,4 comme indiqué sur le site. Couleur brun roux soutenu, à l’opacité assez importante, au point de rendre la recherche des bulles bien compliquées. En fait, elles ne sont pas très vives. Mousse café crème, assez texturée, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt chocolat, avoine, pointe de candi brun, ganache. 1ère bouche très souple, à l’entame sur du malt torréfié, café, chocolat noir 80 % de cacao. Arrière-bouche dense, forte mais équilibrée malt/houblon. 2ème souple et douce, au parfait équilibre malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche du genre d’une black ipa, avec plus de café. 3ème très belle bouche sur le malt torréfié. Arrière-bouche aux cent nuances. Longueur à la grande évolution des saveurs, avec du chocolat chaud de la dame blanche. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure précise, pointue, un rien épicée, la grande classe. Alcool très bien, il soutient la structure et dialogue avec les saveurs. Finale belle, mais où manque le petit éclat (de la déflagration finale …). CONCLUSION : très grande bière qui manque juste un peu sa finale … Un comble pour une apocalypse !!!

Bottle 33cl from la Bierotheque, Schaerbeek. Very dark brown color, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cacao, caramel. Taste is first sweet with upcoming bitterness, a bit salty too. Notes of dates too. A good brown beer.

VDuquerroux (911) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown nearly black beer with a medium beige head ; poor retention. Roasty aroma, herbs, caramel, prune, chocolate, grape. Medium sweet and medium dry bitter ; good balance. Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, dry fruity finish. Overall, a really good brown french ale ; interesting palette of flavours.
