0.33 l bottle shared with ?omo, Dinko and Jela. Thanks Dinko. Dark brown with small off white head. Light and sweet. Caramel and dark malts aroma. Brown sugar. Very light finish, but that’s normal for the style.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear dark brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is yeastybitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells sugarly.

Douberd (3717) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle, 300 ml at home. My 3rd different Oud Bruin for tonight and this one has a two finger light beige head which lowers slowly, leaving no lacing on the glass. The colour is amber but lighter than the ones I had before. Aroma is of malts, some caramel and some pears maybe. All very faint. Taste is sweet and fruity with the typical sour aftertaste being there but very discreetly. Thick on the body and quite carbonated. Leaves the palate dry.

Dark brown sweet low alcohol beer. Mixes nicely with alfa's pilsener. Not my favourite type of beer.

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.
