> Highly impressive oud bruin featuring a savory nose and powerful fruit skin palate

[ Tap ][ Max’s BBF ][ 4oz ][ Mini Imperial Pint ][ Free ][ 2/15/14 ]
>> Thanks ajax25g for the share. Flat murky red/ brune pour. Nose is funky barrel, salty, tootsie rolls, chocolate, red wine, savory blend. Taste is very nice: bitter, lactic, long bitter fruit skin- almost fresh peach skin. Very good oud bruin. Oh yeah. No acetic, minimal lime citric bite/margarita mix nonsense. Sharp, fruit leather palate. I like.

<!> good stuff

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
murky cherry, thin tepid white ring. Almond skin red wine nose, brown sugar and acetic is kicking. Ultra stinging sweet flavor, tons of acid and sugar, heavy plum finish with considerable burn.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Draft at Saison. Poured an almost blackish red with faint brown at edges, no head, looked more like a glass of red wine than a beer. Aroma was a big shot of good balsamic vinegar, with some tart cherry notes. Flavor was balsamic, cherry, stone fruit, and a vanilla finish. Complex and awesome. Really liked this one.

Extremely complex, offee, caramel, funk, slight sour, whiskey, fruits, tobacco, leather, but it is too complex perhaps and not sour enough.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Draft at Strangelove. Pitch black pour with a minimal head. Pungent dark vegetables with a huge sour funk. Minimal aroma (when cold at least.) Celery hearts. Artichokes. Whiskey notes. Good stuff.

PhillyCraft (2847) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle shared by jessie with a couple brahs. Pours dark black with light head. Notes of sour fruit, oak, grapes, tobacco, light rust, very acidic. Lighter notes of whiskey, wine, black currants and berries. Good but too american tasting and sweet to be considered great in my book.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Draft at Local Option. Pours opaque brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of sweet fruit. taste is slightly vinous, funky, sour, with notes of tannis and chocolate. Finish is quite well balanced. I felt the whiskey was totally muted. It was slightly present in the aspect of a warming alcohol quality to the beer, which was a nice effect, but the taste of whiskey was not really present. Low carbonation. Pretty interesting beer.

5/4/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots... pretty sure this is the right one. Granted it wasn’t ice cold but this bottle gushed upon opening. Have a glass ready just in case. Dark brown soda pop pour with a big tan head that sizzles away almost instantly. The dark aspects of a sour pop most in the aroma - leather, tobacco, alcohol, etc. - with some whiskey, booziness, and funky sour. More tart in the flavor, hints of grapes and pixie sticks, with more dark whiskey, tobacco, leather, etc. A touch meaty almost. Interesting, tasty, if not a bit weird.
