Grolsch Oud Bruin is a very thirst-quenching dark beer. It is brewed following the classical brewing method of bottom fermenting. This results in a full, rich taste. Such is the skill of Grolsch. The beer is bestowed a mildly sweet taste by addition of natural sugar.

Ungstrup (31467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2010
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and some malt, leading to a dry nutty finish.

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle: Clear, deep-amber coloured, rather quickly collapsing fluffy "dirty" head; faint caramelly-fruity nose; light sweetish flavour, light bodied as well; delicate sweetish-malty finish. Not too bad......

ha1ag (793) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2009
30 cl bottle from local store. Color is dark reddish brown with tan head. Aroma is roasted malt. Sweet caramel and malts are in the flavour. Too sweet and flat for my taste.

scotty (1107) - SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Good clear brown with a long lasting beige head. Quite malty nose, with malt dominating the palate as well. It is pretty sweet, but it’s not too cloying and adds to the overall " full rich " taste. I liked this!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2009
Pours very dark brown with a decent light brown head. Little in the way of aroma. Malty watery flavour.

Beer5000 (5316) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 8, 2009
300ml bottle. Nice, dark brown body with a beige head. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel. Flavor is extremely sweet malt with brown sugar. This taste like a non-alcoholic malt drink mixed with sodapop. Almost undrinkable in larger amounts (like a whole bottle).

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle, 2.5%. Very weak aroma, perhaps a bit roasted. Nice clear very dark brown colour. Very small brown head. Sweet flavour, brown sugar. Slightly roasted. Like a hvidtøl, only less sweet.

yespr (37013) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
30 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a redish glare and a tan head. Yeasty and roasted malty aroma. Sweet and sugarish malty/caramel flavoured with a mild breadish note. Lasting sugarish malt impression into the far finish.
