COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Flanders style brown ale. We took Chomo-lung-ma (our organic honey nut brown) and aged it in a second generation Woodford Reserve barrel (subtle bourbon flavor, notes of American oak) for four months with 30lbs of tart cherries and a specially blended culture of wild yeast and beer souring bacteria. Chunga’s Old Bruin exhibits and aroma of sweet cherries and faint chocolate/ roasted malt complemented by a faint oak bouquet. The flavor has a pronounced sour character with the caramel, chocolate, and roasted malt finish.

A: The pour is a dark mahogany color with a finger or two worth of off-white head. S: The nose is quite fruity, with lots of sour cherries and a hint of under-ripe plums. The acetic nature of the beer is there, but not overly powerful. T: A good sour cherry flavor along with a bit of oak and (strangely) some chocolate notes (oxidation?). Fairly earthy and somewhat dry, but a decent amount of sweetness seems to have been retained. M: The body is medium with a strong carbonation and a slight dry quality on the finish. D: I quite liked this beer, especially after having a couple of terrible Oud Bruins lately.
