Also known as La Binchoise Brune with a 7.7% abv. This beer looks like it means business right from the start. It is dark red brown with a good fluffy head and has a rich spicy malt nose with a few bitter orange notes. The palate has a big hoppy bite and a rich, fruity, dark coffee character, which tries to become roasted in the finish.

What a nice surprise. A Belgian strong ale that tastes very much like a late '80's early 90's American microbrew brown ale. Lots of flowery hops aroma well-blended with caramelized malt. Pours a reddish-brown - clear, with a medium-sized, somewhat creamy and quickly diminishing head. Pleasing herbal, soapiness about it, with sweetness offset greatly by its firm, but gentle hoppiness. A light brew for a Belgian strong, with no great depth to it - but fresh, clean, smooth and well-balanced. A Belgian for hop lovers.

Bottle from The Party Source from backlog notes. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, brown sugar, caramel, dark fruit, plums, some spice, decent.

Mittleres leicht trübes braun, schaum ok, Geruch malzig holzig leichte rum Note, holzig fassig malzig auch im Geschmack leichte süße rum Note, leider wie bei vielen belgischen bieren etwas zu alkoholisch, aber nicht schlecht

Dégustée à la bouteille au Vaudrée 1 à Liège. Cette brune pas tout à fait brune d’ailleurs -un peu sur l’orange- a une mousse à fines bulles. Son nez est fruité vers la cerise, la prune surtout, le caramel, un peu le coca (?). La bouche est assez sucrée, goûte le caramel et le fruit (toujours la prune). Une belle effervescence et une légère amertume finale complètent le tableau de cette double où l’alcool -tout de même 8%- est bien intégré à l’ensemble. Une bière de Binche qui me permet de savoir enfin qu’il ne faut pas prendre les brunes binchoises pour des prunes ! :-)

Bottle from Hopt. As "La Binchoise Brune" @ 7.5% abv. Dark malty aroma with caramel, dried fruits, raisins, vegetables, yeast, brown sugar, toffee, bit candied, with mild spicy notes including a touch of nutmeg. Flavour is sweet and lightly bitter. Body is medium. Not a very satisfactory Dubbel.

Bottle. Reddish-Brown in colour. Sweet Malty (caramel, toffee, candy sugar, hints of chocolate). Fruity & Spicy (dark fruits, raisins, oranges, cinnamon). Yeasty (floaties and quite a lot of sediment). Sweet malty with slightly bitter hoppy edge. (2008)

kraddel (8145) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2016
Pours rather clear amberbrown, small white head. Smell is weak. Bit sweet, some port. taste is sweet, yet complex. Some candy, some port. Aromatic malts and hops, as well as a very perfumy milkchocolate-thing going on. Not bad at all !

DrNosha (2347) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2016
0,33l Flasche mit 7,7%. Kastanienfarbenes Bier mit beigem flüchtigem Schaum. Sanft fruchtige Vanillenote. Antrunk ist überraschen röstig, fast etwas rauchig. Malz und Asche. Wenig Frucht. Sperriger Geschmack.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Butelka, warka do nienabili ;) i piwo troche inne niz tu - obrazek sie zgadza, w nazwie nie wystepuje tradition, i ma 7.7 ABV.. Brazowaw-ciemnobursztynowe piwo, z prawie biala, niebrzydka piana. Aromaty dosc proste i dosc slodkie - zbozowe, tostowe, ciemnoowocowe, karmelowe, ciut przyprawowe i kasztanowe. Suma ciut ciut mdla. w ustach slodkawe, srendio ciala, niewiele wysycenia, b malo goryczki, alko super ukryte, ale znow takie ciutmdle wrazenie. Nie wiem czemu w sumie, bo wiele dubli ma podobna palete, moze to te kasztany... ktore w polaczeniu ze zbozem daja nieco mączne wrazenie. niezle.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2016 Surprisingly rich aroma for a French brune, with raisin and fig like sweetness as well as a more malty (and even roasted) tone. Belgian dubbel like, but not as dry and with a cleanliness that?s odd for such a fruity beer. Even some bubblegum notes. Nice warming taste, not too little alcohol -- this should have some heat to balance the spiced malts. And a good hoppy, albeit classic bite to it too. Very foamy carbonation which I enjoy a lot, countering the alcohol and toast. Only the ending is a bit abrupt and simpler, but I guess it only sets you up for another sip. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
