Bottle (Bager) at ØLklubben. A typical simpel oud bruin. Clear brown - small light beige head. Bike glue, candy sugar, high sweetness, light balsamic vinegar.. Very simpel.

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.

Darker brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and an average off-whtie head. Rather strange herby creamy aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is sweet-light sour. Medium one.

Bottled (my Belgian rating #700). Deep reddish brown colour with brown foamy head. Aroma is fruits, earth and some acidic notes. Flavour is really sour malts, fruity hops and licorace. Quite pleasant and wellbalanced brew. Could be a bit more sour.
