Strong, malty aroma has a firm fruity note and a hint of cloves. Pours a dark, somewhat transparent chestnut with a thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Well-rounded malty, fruity flavor has hints of cloves, caramel and woody hops and just a nip of alcohol. Smooth texture has good, firm body and some fizz, leaving a malty finish that has touches of caramel and cloves. Gotta love them monks.
Bottle at home. Deep red, brown color, looks nice. Beige thin head. Taste okay, but aftertaste a bit thin. Piepenhenrich (587) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2017
Good brown ale, with added flavors (gruut) which may or may not be your idea of how beer should be brewed, yet renders a nice drinking experience. gripweed57 (2717) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2017

Taste: Medium sweetness.
Palate: Medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Short sweet finish with subtle alcoholic notes.
Overall: Brabante Oscura: The features are too soft for the aroma. Leaves a very short memory. Too much carbonation for this kind of beer. Zilverenmaan (239) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2017

Bottle at Bier Markt. Faintly reddish brown with thin white head. Notes of raisins, caramel, toffee, plums. Tastes of toffee, caramel, raisins, plums. Bit of a harsh aftertaste to this. ManVsBeer (10786) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2017
Bottle from Nisa, Hebden Bridge. Brownish-red in colour with a small head. Rich but not overbearing, although not too stated in taste or flavour with a hint of chocolate in its nose amongst some pale malts. Its strength is not really a factor, and it has a fairly smooth texture. hednom (187) - Messelbroek, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2017
