Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Very dark brown with a small head and a heavy carbonation. Malty and quite dry - no cloying sweetness here as sometimes in Dutch "Oud Bruins". Very discreet bitterness. Quite pleasant. 030601

Bottle, 2.5%. Subtle sweet aroma. Clear dark brown colour, red shine. Small brown head. The flavour starts off slightly metallic. The flavour is sweet, seems to have a little brown sugar and malt syrup. Thin mouthfeel.

Oakes (12447) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2000
For a low-alc beer, it’s not too bad. Kind of perks you up a bit at lunch and you can still function that afternoon. Of course, we don’t get oud bruin in Canada so that was a one-time thing.

bierkoning (10196) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2002
Sweet flavor with brown sugar and caramel. Fresh, with just a hint of sourness. Has more bite and body than most other oud bruin beers.

deanso (5248) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2013

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2003
Typical dutch oud bruin. Dark brown color, quickly disappearing head. Extremely sweet, slightly malty aroma and taste. Loads of sugar. Not my kind of beer, maybe my mother likes it...
