corkyrory66 (1623) - BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2013
Une bire de 7,5 % abv, classer dans les double donc, mais aux trs hautes caractristiques. Brasserie artisanale de village comme on en trouvait 3887 en Belgique en 1907 Mais quel bonheur de trouver encore de pareils produits, issus du seul mrite dun brasseur, et qui plus est, bien jeune... Couleur noire, jolis reflets roux. Cart nette. Bulles trs peu nombreuses, un peu comme une trappiste brune quadruple!!!! Mousse beige qui nappe en surface. Armes dun superbe grain, agrment de feuilles dautomne, de single malt du speyside, pointe de papier kraft, prune, et une pice de la fort ardennaise....(surprise!). 1re bouche la texture structure, sur du caf moka, arabica, avec une pointe de girofle. Arrire-bouche trs poignante, ferme. 2me bouche de grande ampleur en fond sur du malt torrfi. 3me lquilibre, avec force et beaut. Arrire-bouche la fois frache et complexe. La longueur amne une forte emprise et une trs belle texture. La levure est de forte constitution, trs belle. Lalcool est trs valable, remplit son rle admirablement (comparez-le par exemple celui de la Brugse Zot dubbel, et vous comprendrez toute la diffrence, avec exactement le mme degr alcoolique. Un vrai cas dcole....). La finale est fine, mais, seul petit dfaut de cette bire, ne prend pas de rel envol. Conclusion: une belle bire de fire allure, que beaucoup de grands brasseurs feraient bien de mditer Admirable travail, qui il ne manque quune note finale. (pour ce petit dfaut de bravoure, nous enlevons 2/10mes de point sur 10, soit un dizime sur 5, cherchez le problme mathmatique!!).

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle was 4 months out of date. Aroma gives forest fruits, brambels and blackberrys, giving a vinous tartness, a little aging too. Taste is similar with a little almonds from what seems to eb the agingness. Outstanding.

Wonderful Brune! Delicious! A very complex flavour, somewhat reminicent of Oerbier. An absolute favourite!

SilkTork (5610) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Brown beer with a refreshing acidic quality. Nothing sharp or bloody like the aged or Oud bruins from Flanders, but heading in that direction. Theres a nice fruity touch to this. Hop bitterness is low - most of the character coming from the action of the yeast on the dark malts. Hints of chocolate, drops of thin blood, rusty tin, and orange zest. Wrapped up well. Both interesting and refreshing. A damn fine drink.

omhper (24092) - Tyres, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2002
Bottled. Very dark brown. Estery, perfumy aroma. Sweet coffee nose. Notes of raspberries. Creamy mouthfeel and light bitterness. A really tasty potion reminiscent of kahlua...

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle. This is an excellent I repeat excellent brown. Although it is not as well known as some of the competition it is a very very decent brown. The color is almost darker then brown and bordering on a black. This is very smooth with an almost stout feel, it is spiced with oak and herbs, but feels just right.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
Brown ale in the dubbel style. Clean fermentation, big brewon colour with carbonation levels on the light side. Honey addition thins the beer lightly but still has big chocolate notes. Sweet and malty and very smooth, great balance. A diferent belgian ale-extremely pleasant.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2004
Very strong and decent aroma of fruits, malty sweet, rye and raisins. Cloudy, brown coloured with a thin, off-white and lasting head. Taste is malty sweet coffee, rye, fruit and raisins. Creamy palate, perhaps slightly alcoholic. Quite a decent brew!

zacgillbanks (4789) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle from Spar supermarket, Rochefort, Belgium. Hazy mahogany brown coloured beer that pours with a large white foamy head. It has a very rich spicy dried fruit, currant and marzipan flavour with chocolate and spices on the finish. Very nice.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 12, 2002
Nice brown color, thick rich head. Goregous thick chewy maltiness. Well balanced with nice firm hop backbone. Liquorice, and anise flavors. Hmmm this is a good beer at any price, and at $3.99 an amazing steal.
