In 1975 Brasserie de Silly took over the Tennstedt-DeCroes brewery in nearby Enghien and their range was significantly broadened by this. Double Enghien, a beer that enjoyed some local popularity at the time, was added.
At 8.0% ABV the brune is reasonably high in alcohol yet this is barely noticeable due to the abundance of flavour. Excellent malt aromas are lifted on a breeze of alcohol with a slight hint of coconut and caramel. Thick and chewy in the mouth with malty caramel, boiled sweets and malt whisky notes. A long, dry and slightly bitter finish completes this supremely smooth and drinkable amber coloured ale.
