Dark chestnut color. Large head. Malty aroma with a heavy fruitiness and hint of sourness. Some sourness in the flavor. Earthy. Light-to-moderate hops in the background. Fairly dry. Dusty. This might be off.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle - thanks to Jeppe for the free bottle. Unclear dark brown - offwhite head. Chokolate, berries, roasted, fruity, yeasty, light dirt - earth, forrest, dark fruits, dark malty. Just another belgian.....

Cloudy brown body with a large off-white head. Faint aroma of baked pie crust (Aroma was much weaker than the Fagnard Blonde. Thin body, taste is initially generic factory cake followed by a fruity dessert followed by a bitter finish. Weird but interesting. A good beer that suffers from being the sister of the excellent Fagnard Blonde. Why have the Brunette when you can have the Blonde, which reminds of the Parker sisters because… well, that’s another story.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2006
Bottled. (BB 051231) Unclear, orange-brown beer with a small beige head. Lambic-like sour aroma with citrus, caramel-notes and cellar. The flavor is a bit sour as well, with malt, yeast, mould, cherry and hints of alcohol. Medium body and a finish that is sour and sweet, with some salty licorice as well. The BB-date might have something to do with the sourness, which I am not sure was intended, but I didn’t dislike it. (060914)

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2005
Chestnut brown with a red hue. Huge and creamy, off-white head. Vinous, malty and fruity aroma. Flavours are caramel sweet with some sour notes. A bit thin body despite its strength.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Comes as "Biere des Fagnes Brune". Beautiful, dark brown beer with a red tint. Pours clear but has an impressive, yeasty sediment. Nice, dense and quite stable head. Pronounced notes of chocolate and malt, but more dry than sweet. Only a weak hint of bitterness in the finish. Nice. 210102

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2005
This is a very good Belgian Strong Ale. Fruity, sweet, and malty flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

Bottled (BB 12/2005)
Dark hazy brown with shade of red. Big brown cloudy head. Aroma has malts and crisp fruits. Sour flavor - lemon and malts. Mouthfeel is very carbonated. Some salty licorice in the finish. Quite interesting brune, sorry to hear about closing of this brewery.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2004
Dark brown w. large, long lasting head. Fruity, light acidity, little liqourice. Ok.
