3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Aroma is lightly tart and sour with a not unpleasant hint of musty wood. Pours dark brown with deep amber highlights. Flavor is rather balanced. Dry woodiness and a light tart cherry tartness. Some wet wood. leaps and bounds better than the Grand Cru. Fairly creamy on the palate. Finishes with a woody dryness.

33 cL bottle. Pours deep reddish towards brown and with a lacing brown head. Earthy and mouldy aroma. Flavour is cane-sugarish sweet and with a mild malt note. Finish is somewhat short and not thrilling but still good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby-red with a persistent off-color head and good carbonation. Aroma is a strong sour fruit scent with a bit of yeast and malt...perhaps corn as well? Taste is light and sweet, with an initially dry taste opening up into a flavor of dark fruit, brown sugar, and a bit of a hoppy bite. If nothing else, kudos to this brew for scaring me with its smell and surprising me with its taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dense, dark pour reminiscent of Sprecher’s Bavarian Black with a persistent, slightly creamy head’ pervasive notes of berries, yeast, and chocolate.
The actual flavor is surprisingly tart and tangy with punctuations of rye and pear; a thin mouthfeel and great deal of fermentation-like effervescence.
Oud Bruin would do best as simply a sipping beer, but if you must pair something with it, keep it simple: Ridderost or maybe a Port Salut.
