bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle at Hoppe. Awful. dark brown. syrupy sweet, no sour complexity. This is very bad, and gives Oud Bruin a bad name.

imdownthepub (11946) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 300ml, From a Supermarket in Schin op Geul, NL Limburg. Dark Brown with ruby hints, no head. More a Tablebeer than anything, sweet and sticky, smooth and malty but little else. Useful for lunchtime drinking.

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle: Poured a reddish dark brown with thick creamy light brown head. The aroma was wood and bark. The flavor was a sweet syrup malt.

altonbrownd (4591) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle at home. Pretty weak. Now I see why, it’s low alcohol. Quite sweet. I remarked that it was like drinking a brown coca-cola and my family agreed. Pretty watery, too sweet and not all all interesting or remarkable in any way. Brand beers are generally quite good though. Can’t believe that Michael Jackson recommended this one.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - APR 20, 2007
Dark brown pour with medium sized head. This had a sweet malty aroma with a too sweet malty finish. Average.

MPA (866) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle. Beautiful dark red/brown colour with nice beige head. Sweet and malty aroma along with caramel and metal. Very sweet flavour (almost like hvidtøl) with hints of mocca and only slight bitterness. It looks fantastic, but the rest doesn’t quite add up...

3fourths (8795) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 33cl bottle
Consumed at Bierspeciaalcafe De Paas, Den Haag, May 2006

Dark brown body with a small dark tan head, almost purple in the light at the pub. Smell of stale cigarette tobacco and ashes. Very sweet caramelized sugars and nasty nut flavors. Like a really terrible soda.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 17, 2006
Pours the colour of cola with a nice lacing. Malty aroma. Sweet, but with a hint of malt and grass. Watery, but that’s to be expected at this ABV.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2005
Bottled. Rubyish amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramellish malts with hints of strawberries. Flavour is toffeeish, very candylike. But at the same time quite watery, not that exciting. Lack of alcohol leads to lack of "beerish" ingredients. More like a soda or lemonade.

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2005
Bottled (BB 08/2006)
Dark ruby, good tan head. Grassy, ashy malty nose. Sweetish (saccarine) and crisp. Sugary aftertaste. Quite a lot of n/a -beer character here.
