Appearance: Dark brown body with hints of deep red. Beige frothy persistent head, started at about 3 fingers and stayed for half of my very long sitting. The other half of the time it was about 1 finger with excellent lacing the whole time. This beer has a lively carbonation.

Sent: Carmel malts

Taste: Carmel malts with a hint of roasted nuts and dark chocolate. Rather sweet, but not overpowering since the finish was slightly bitter. The bittersweet aftertaste lingers.

Mouth feel: Rich yet smooth, medium body.

Overall impression: My favorite beer so far by leaps and bounds. It tastes just as great, if not better, at room temperature as it does when chilled.

Tasted on: 09/14/12

4.9/5  rDev +29.6%

A - dark body with well formed head that remained for as long as I had the beer in my glass

S - caramel and fruity

T - the sugar mellowed out the whole taste and made it surprisingly easy to drink

M - Very smooth

D - easy to drink (I had three)

all in all, a very lovely beer. I wish I could find it more in the US

Like another reviewer, Leffe has become my "go to" beer and the Brune is my beer of choice. There's nothing about this beer that I don't like, other than seeing an empty six pack. The Brune seems to be a bit harder to find but is definitely worth the chase!

A - At first glance, it looks like your typical average beer. Nothing special about its appearance, dark colour, almost pitch black. Pours with little head (or head if intended). Will regain some head if swirled. Very good carbonation.

S - To put it simple, this beer is awsome. It is my absolute favourite. Various smells will overtake you and leave your nose tingling.

T - The taste is something to talk about. The domiment tastes would have to be caramal malts and sweet fruits of various types. This beer will not disappoint. A very malty taste with a bit of bitterness to it.

M - Wow. Excellent carbonation and leaves a great taste in your mouth. This beer is a little heavy and leaves you a lot to think about after a swallow.

D - Not recommended for chugging because this beer must be treated with respect. This beer is excellent and I recommend both on-tap and bottle serving. I enjoy this beer on the cold side, but I believe if drank at a warmer temperature, the aromas will be overwhelming. My favourite beer to date and I would gladly have another one.
