2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear maroon color, scant head. Aroma of subtle prunes and raisins. Taste is odd sweet, sour and buttery. Calling this one an oud bruin is false advertising.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle of 300 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 2.5%
Very thin head, maybe half a finger, beige in colour. It goes off quite fast also.Colour of the beer itself is very dark brown, only when hold against the light takes some amber hues, very dark, again. The head has now gone almost completely, some of it lingers around the glass and a big island of foam has now formed on the surface of the beer.
Roasted malts on the aroma, very strong, it makes it smell like dark chocolate, quite pleasant.
Taste is sweet, and as with most of the Oud Bruins I have tried, there is a metalic aftertaste.Some notes of the roasted malts are being found on the taste too.
Light on the body, with very low carbonation, which in combination with the low alcohol makes it very drinkable, although I find it too "light", some more carbonation would be welcomed.
Overall, a modest one in the genre.

Dark mahogany color, medium head. Perfumy caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavor, no real bitterness. Actually I find it not deep but quite refreshing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dirty brown-greige head, small, over muddy dark brown beer with an orange sheen whilst pouring. Sweetish nose, bit of liquorice, and a faint sewer-ish smell, just under the warning treshold. Sugarwater with liquorice and some bready malt. Dissolved brown candi sugar, and trace of overripe banana in the finish. After some time, impression of Traubenzucker. Watery consistency, with a syrupy-sticky thread running through it, as an oiltrace running in the midst of a creek. We would call it tafelbier, and serve it to the kids.

Opague black colour instead of brown like the name would make one expect. Not a lot of smell. A bit hoppy and very sweet taste.
