NOTE- This beer seems to be miscategorized. It is not a brown ale, but a Belgian Dubbel. I have a soft spot for Belgian beers, even though they do not fit my normally dry/bitter beer profile. Had the Chimay Blue tripel last month and I loved it, but the alcohol is so high, it?s a bit off-putting. This Chimay Red, at 7%, is so much easier to drink. Smooth, rich?Really loved it. I will try the other Chimays next month to see if I can find one better than the Red.

A distinct Belgian dubbel (labeled a bruin here?which is it?) that isn?t worth the price. Fizzy, medium body. Copper color. Carmel, fig, malt. Had at Boone & Crocket.

SRM19. Completely opaque with some visible rising bubbles. Long lasting foamy head. Fruity aroma, I sense grapes. Foam sticks nicely to the glass. Medium carbonation. Grape taste with finish strong with alcohol bite. Finishes kind of tasteless.

Trappist Ale. Its coppery color and sweet, fruity taste make it a articular early tasty dark ale. Good.
