Also called Belgian Dark Ale, Brune, or Bruin (not to be confused with the very different Oud Bruin), Belgian Brown Ale consists of a wide range of dark, low to moderate alcohol Belgian Abbey-style beers. If a small Belgian brewery offers only two regular beers, often one will be a Belgian Blonde Ale and the other will be a Belgian Brown Ale. Browns have a wider stylistic range than blondes; they may be dry or sweet, but either way malt and yeast flavors are usually dominant; they usually lack the complex alcohol and spice flavors of a Dubbel, but the styles are each flexible enough that there is some overlap between them.

Belgian strong dark ale is a higher-alcohol versions of brown ale and is generally considered a different style.
