Voivod (304) - Como, - AUG 2, 2003
Dark brown colour, good head, not really lasting. Liquorice aroma, with caramel traces. The flavour is obviously light, not too sweet (liquorice and chococolate), but even not watery. A very easy to drink beer: it will never be one of my favourite beers, but I've got to admit that it's pleasant to drink one of these in the summertime!

mariuspoenari (1692) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
This has nothing to do with the Flanders Oud Bruin that’s brewed in Belgium, and is, in fact, quite the opposite, in terms of styles, aside, maybe, from the somewhat similar colour. Very sweet and malty (from what I understand, sweetener is added during the brewing process), with no trace of bitterness or sourness of any kind.

suurjuust (2914) - ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2015
Brown beer, beige soapy head. Nose is sweet and sugray, malt notes, grain, caramel. Flavor is sweet, dried fruit, caramel, grain and mild toast notes and oh boy is this thin.

martjoobolut (3188) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours dark ruby with beige-light brown head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grainy, malty. Flavor is very sweet, malt, fruits, grains, roast. Finish has some faint wood and dry bitterness. Body is very watery. Overall: drinkable-ish.

vipinvelp (3887) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
In loving memory to my MOM who always drank this style. Clear dark brown, small light brown foam head. Sweet caramle aroma and taste, although not too sweet this one. (Arnhem 201506)

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 25, 2015
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Small size, white head, stays as a ring. Buttery, caramel, sweet in aroma. Sweet, berries, some rubbery roast and some smokiness in taste. Low carbonation. Sweet rubbery rost in aftertaste. Sweet and sticky.

FatPhil (14149) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 23, 2015
330ml bottle (Traveller’s, Tallinn)
I like oud bruins. In particular the oud part. The ageing in wooden barrels or vats. That I love. And there’s none of that here. It’s nicely dark, and has a gentle malty sweetness to its aroma. But there it ends. Once in the mouth, it’s just a bland sweet malt drink. That’s it. Malta. I was going to ask for a change of style to Flemish red, but fick it, this beer isn’t worth the effort.

markextrae (3995) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Typical Dutch oud bruin, so a brown table beer that has nothing to do with what is called ’oud bruin’ in Belgium. Dark reddish brown colour, beige head, malty nose, caramel, chocolate, sweet taste, bit sugary as expected for the style, bit fuller and maltier than usual but inevitably thin due to the low alcohol content.
