COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Enjoyed from an 11.2oz bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a very dark brown color, with a mild light tan head. The nose shows really spectacular notes of milk chocolate, Abbey/Trappist yeast esters, raisin, and prune. The palate shows milk chocolate up front, strong CaraMunich and raisiny Special B notes, a surprisingly lightly ester profile, and an almost candy-like final character. Carbonation is perhaps slightly low, but pleasant, given the high level of residual sweetness. The finish again shows a nice chocolate character, with a slightly stronger ester note than shown in the palate. Overall, a beer that is decidedly on the malty end of the style, just short of being cloying, but utterly enjoyable.

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

ardeo (494) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2017
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 ! :-)

tricksta_p (4927) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2017
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.

3.4
john44 (3215) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
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 (8616) - 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 !

3.1
DrNosha (2516) - 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.
