Doskonale ciemno brazowe ale. Alkohol niewyczuwalny, jakby go wogole nie bylo. Wspaniala gesta i kremowa piana. Malo nagazowane jak na belgijskie piwo. Wspanialy piszkoptowo-piernikowy aromat. Smak takze wspanialy karmelowo piernikowy. Podobny w smaku do najlepszych abbaye dubbel. Eirikur (386) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - AUG 30, 2003
Very nice beer. Big head as expected from that photo. A typical belgian brown with a hint of oil, nuts, chocolate and some herbs. Very decent stuff. Thanks Haukur efdejesus (93) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2011
On draft at Bavarian Lodge. Pours a deep red/amber with off white head. Aromas of malts, carmel. Very malty throughout with some spice. Alcohol hidden. Body is medium to full. A wonderful beer. fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2004
Beautiful brown color, deep yet brite. Nice thin head that leaves a thin belgian lace to the finish. The aroma is faint yet reflects roasted malts and rich caramel notes. The flavor is pronunced and rich however, not overwhelming. Light bodied, just the right amount of bitterness, for a clean refreshing very drinkable brown ale.

This is a pretty good brown. It doesn’t something that is pretty difficult in a style crowded with high quality beers, its distinctive. Most of this distinctiveness comes out in the color of the beer (slightly red) and the flavor (a bit more berry fruitiness than you’d expect). Overall, pretty good! dirkbreedveld (289) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2004
Nice dark colored beer, brewed just below Maastricht in Belgium.
Long aftertaste that all what remains of my notes of St.Niklaas 2004, and with the star which means for me a must have in my bar this year on tap. ohemming (39) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2007
For 7% this beer went down nice and easy. This brown ale is on the sweet side of things. Remember when drinking this beer that you don’t have to be smacked in the face by the beer for it to be complex, forget about what imaginary flavors you can pick out and enjoy it for what it is, a damn good beer.

Brune acajou, effervescence moyenne, col crémeux-nuageux. De bons malts torréfiés, une présence de fruits foncés, quelques notes de réglisse pour l’amertume et un petite quelque chose en plus font de l’Urchon une très bonne brune! haukur (1957) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 28, 2003
what a HUUUUUUGE head, looks like an evil Duvel! Very hoppy and malty, it has a taste that I cant quite figure out, very thick beer, if I hadnt known the ABV I´d be guessing that this would be a at least 9% ABV .. strangely, it tasted just like I expected.. nice warmer, this would be a very nice treat in january with the wind and snow bearing on your window!
