750 ml bottle into chalice, best before June 2015. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, toast, caramel, pear, apple, raisin, brown bread, pepper, clove, brown sugar, toffee, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, caramel, toast, pear, apple, raisin, clove, pepper, brown bread, floral, brown sugar, toffee, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, pear, apple, raisin, floral, brown sugar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with an awesome malt/spicy flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian brown ale. All around great balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Thank you alpineclimber!

Appearance. Pours a deep red-brown with two fingers of cream coloured head that leaves some decent lace.

Smell. Sweet caramel malts, some melon, raisins and a little bit of red berries.

Taste. Sweet caramel malts, some dark fruits and nuts, and a little spicy yeast.

Mouthfeel. Lighter body, a little thin and watery. Medium carbonation. Just a little alcohol warmth.

Overall. I have to admit, this isn't among my favorite styles, but a drinkable beer to say the least.

750ml bottle. Called somewhat confusingly a 'Stout de Gaume' on my version.

This beer pours a murky, dark reddish, golden brown hue, with two chubby fingers of foamy, burbling beige head, which leaves a few examples of manta ray maw lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.

It smells of lightly roasted caramel malt, earthy black fruit, a slight licorice tint, dusty, leafy hops, and the tiniest of booze warming. The taste is biscuity caramel malt, a strong oily nuttiness, some soft ashy wood notes, a bit of baker's chocolate, a twinge of earthy yeast, and some mild leafy hops.

The carbonation is average, no fuss or muss there, the body a decent medium weight, with just a slight metallic edge detracting from the overall smoothness. It finishes with the malt on the wane, though still nutty, fruity, and caramelized enough, with the offset of mild alcohol and musty old basement hops gaining a bit of ground.

If the category of "Belgian Brown Ale" existed, this would be cinch for inclusion, even if the Belgian part is fleeting at best. A nice toasty, nutty, fruity brown ale, one that could teach the lads in Newcastle (or even Brooklyn, for the matter) a few things.

Burgundy. Full of fruit flavors (plums, grapes as well as citrus in Rulles Blonde). Mouth malted barley and yeast, which adds the syrupy side. In addition to the dryness of the hops, there is a fruity interesting (probably due to the Amarillo hops) that is accompanying a persistent finish that offers a strong drought.

From a 750ml crown top bottle. Very dark ale with a beige head, with a good head retention. Smell of chocolate malt. This beer has a taste of chocolate malt, some hard too find spices. This beer is like lace in the mouth, very tasty but easy drinking ale.

Festival Bières et Saveurs 209. Pours brown with nice off-white head and gives off a malty aroma. Above-average mouthfeel from caramel. Malty taste and balanced, with a little chocolate, a little nuttiness and spice that is perhaps a dash of cinamon.

This brew is a wonderful chestnut color with a thick, tightly packed tan head. The aroma is of chocolate, medium-roast malts, and a little dark fruit. Mmm...nice. The taste is semi-sweet, with a bit of yeast and pepper. Not much of a hop character at all, this beer is centered on the roasted flavors. Medium in body, and very smooth. It's a very drinkable brew.

A dark brown beer with an off-white creamy head that recedes into a 1/4 inch of foam.

Smell is a little roasty with sweet melon and rhubarb.

The beer tastes so light in a good way. The beer is light malty, larded by candisugar. Notes of dark fruit like dates and melon. This beer is very drinkable.

Bottle from Lubière: Poured a dark brown color ale with a medium dark foamy head with great retention. Aroma of light caramel malt with very subtle Belgian yeast. Taste is smoother then expected with semi-sweet caramel malt, light Belgian yeast and some very low hops presence. Body is a bit thin and alcohol doesn’t really show. Not bad but a bit too bland in my opinion.
