Courtesy of Fonefan. The color is clear, dark, red mahogany and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, syrup and a little coffee. The flavour has sweetness and notes of rye bread, syrup and roasted malt. It’s rather like a Danish hvidtøl.

Pours a near black colour with a small head that dissappears almost right away.
Smell is very sweet, as is the taste.
It’s too much of the same taste and smell.

too swet to my taste, at served has an elegant picture dark and frothy head, but in a couple of minutes the magic dissapear and remains a dark liquid that looks more like a coke, alcohol is noticiable but no taste around it, the end seems to me more like a cuba-libre rather than beer.

Dark brown color, small head. Sweet and moderated-minimal aroma and flavour of roasted malt, maybe a little coffe with a poor bitter taste. It is like a diet coke.

Bottle. Very sweet & malty. Very dark red. nearly no head at all. Heavy sweet start, in the middle it gets a little bit bitter. Average duration. Medium body (because of the sweetness), syrup texture, soft carbonation.
Good Oud Bruin.

Bottle at Hoppe. Awful. dark brown. syrupy sweet, no sour complexity. This is very bad, and gives Oud Bruin a bad name.
