Pours a dark brown color with a touch of red. Foamy dark head. Spicy fig and sausage aroma (seriously). Sweet fruit flavor; berries. Overall, itís very drinkable. If it didnít have that sausage aroma it would be great!

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2010
33cl bottle - not a dubbel - this has the sweet-n-sour with mild acidity characteristics of an oud bruin - aroma is a mix of sweetness (vanilla, caramel), acidity and fruity esters - a light funk, oak and vinegar character on a deep inhale - spritz-y, soda-like carbonation - cherry sweetness comes first - but is quickly covered up but moderate acidity/tartness - not very complex up front - however, moderate oak and a very subtle but complex earthy/funk quality eventually settles in on the palate - itís a mixed bag really, as this sort of tastes like a flemish sour mixed with cherry soda - meh.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2010
11.2oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of some wood, toasty, some dark fruits, and a lighter funk. Tastes of dark fruits, vanilla, a little more funk than the aroma, caramel, and some wood.

legion242 (2143) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Solid brew. Not an Abbey Dubbel at all in my opinion, more of a very mild Flanders sour.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
Pours with barely any head and a dark brown body with little carbonation. Aroma is rye bread, spices, barley. Taste is sweet mud, a bit of sour ale, some chocolate. Nice, in fact, a good sipping beer.

thirdeye11 (5481) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(330ml bottle best by 11/10/11 thanks to bu11zeye) clearish brown/ruby with lasting fine tan bubbles. Nose of alcohol, light funk, raisin, cream, and spices. Taste of Belgian yeast, cinnamon, funky, raisin, slightly watery but creamy.

(330ml bottle, BB 10/11/11) Pours a clear brown body with a medium cream head. Aroma of mustiness, raisins, brown sugar, and dates. Flavor of raisins, caramel, some toasted grain, yeast, and plums.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 Bottle from a beer fair in Girona. It pours dark brown dense liquid with a low light brown head. The aroma is sweet, like Porto wine, yeasty, with a matching taste of dark chocolate, licorice and some fruit (mostly cherry); disapointingly, also a little watery. Carbonation is low, as well as bitterness. It finishes sweet and kind of acid. Singular beer, very different from the other brunes; not my type of beer, but it is worth trying.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2010
Huge, cream to mossy coloured, very dense & fine head over cola-coloured beer with a mossy sheen. Sweet-sourish, nutmeg, lactic acid. Sweet, lactic but no sourness, wood, but a little impression of artificial sweetener. Warming up, this turns into a bit syrupy sweet soy sauce flavour. Very slick, sticky, but nice palate. Not a patch on the former Oud Bruin (oh, how we mourn the Sirius of yore...), but even this new Brune is palatable.
