UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 CBF07 sample from bottle. Presented as Tourney Brune, should have been named Black Hole according to Ralf from Det Belgiske Hus. Pours deep brown. Nose is liqourice and malty, clear yeast presence with raisins and prunes, classical belgian. Flavour is malty, coffee and roasted malt with a vague uplifting note. Good spicy and sweet finish.Ungstrup (38902) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2006
2007-08-18 33 cL bottle (as Tournay de Noël). Pours deep brown with a red hue and light brown head. Chocolate note, slight spiced and minor liqourice nose. Liqourice finish to a beer that starts with a chocolate smoothness. Slight bitterhops note. Spiced. Nice and slight warming. 7 4 7 3 14 = 3,5.
I’m in doubt if the Tourney Brune is identical to the Tournay de Noël

, Essen. Deep brown colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is spices, caramel and some sourness. Flavour is spices, malts and some mild hints of hops and yeast. Not much how much of an Christmasbeer this tastes like though...
dark chestnut brown with a lively light beige head that lasts a few minutes then reduces to a fine layer with reasonable lacing.
aroma of alcohol, caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg.
flavor begins with caramel and scotch, then progresses to light spice with cinnamon, then ends with a slightly bitter edge.
very nice body, smooth, creamy and full.
a nice Christmas beer, worth seeking out. I’d like to find it in a larger bottle and store it for a year or two. madmitch76 (26368) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015

Bottleshare at Chez Smith. Thanks to Dan. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and mildly dry, modest fine carbonation. Thin but sweetish malts, thin cream. Light caramel toffee. Mild and quite ripe fruits. Pinch of spice. Standard stuff.
Bottled. Hazy mahgany colour, creamy head. There’s bubblegum and doughy malt. Medium bodied with some malt sweetness. Very solid body offering dough, marzipan, salt and caramel. Gently warming with well put together flavours. Laid back, yet complex. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, dark brown with a vague, reddish tint and a dense, beige head leaving some lacework. Fat aroma of hard roasted malts - lightly burned actually. Quite a full body with plenty of burned malt, lightly sweet with an underlying spiciness and then a burned, slightly ashy finish. Quite decent but atypically Belgian with these almost stout-like characteristics. 180807
