I had this Brune in a tulip glass.

Appearance- The intense head builds easily to three fingers of off-white sandy color. It is rather puffy and thick and craters as it dies slowly. The retention is impressive and leaves a great deal of thick, spidery lace.

The opaque and dark auburn body glows with more orange highlights.

Smell- The nose is slightly tangy and chalky from the yeast and dark fruit scents. The dark malt is also a little roasty and hints at bittersweet chocolate.

Taste- Slightly tangy dark fruits and roasted malt. As the drink progresses, a slight brandy warmness begins to take over the drink and also brings out the earthy yeast.

A subtle peppery flavor is also present throughout the drink.

Mouth feel- A decent medium body and fairly creamy. Despite the alcohol bite, it is an easy drink.

Overall- This offering is spicy and slightly hot. The darker malts contribute a dark fruit and roasted malt on the front of the drink. It would be nice if that carried throughout the drink and did not devolve into earthy yeast and warmness quite so soon.

Cloudy amber in appearance, nice foam. Smell is malty with a slight citrus aroma. Mouthfeel, Taste is very barly wine in flavor. Has a nice feel, with the right balance of bubbles. Now that is technical. Overall this is a good beer that will go nicely with a steak. Very nice after dinner drink.

11.2oz Bottle - thanks to Phyl21ca for this one

Appearance – Murky brown colour with a very large size fizzy beige coloured head. It’s hard to make out the carbonation level due to the darkness of the beer and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, grapes/raisins, yeast, roasted nuts, coriander/cloves

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, raisins, and some yeast. There is also some notes of cloves/coriander and just a hint of banana and chocolate. It ends with a buttery malty aftertaste with a nice spiciness.

Overall – This beer really had a lot going on taste wise. As the temperature of the beer changed I kept discovering new flavours. I really enjoyed it and I'm surprised to see some of the low ratings for it on this site. I'd drink it again anytime.

Poured into tulip from 750ml bottle.

A: Light brown opaque color with generous but rapidly dissipating head but little lacing.

S: Pretty faint, acrid with sweet malts, dark raisin

T: Yeast and hop bitterness dominate

M: This is a dry, pretty easy drinking brew were it not for the bitterness.

Had this as a sample at the Great Lost Bear with my wife. The beer has a huge lace with a nice brown color

The nose is sweet strawberries with a nice malt backing very unique

The taste starts sweet maltyness with a hint of vanilla the taste slowly turns to a slight bitterness as the carbonation dissipates
