Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Deep, dark mahogany brown with a small head. Malty and extremely sweet (artificial sweeteners) with a thin, thin body. Reminds me of Danish "Hvidtřl" - just worse. Disappointing. 120101

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle (750ml): Clear, deep chestnut-amber coloured, big - very loose - yellowish-brownish head; moderate sweetish-caramelly nose with a faint illusion of hops; moderate sweet, but also light bitter flavour, light bodied - as expected; detectable roast-malty traces in the moderate sweet caramelly finish, rounded by alight, very light bitterness in the aftertaste. Not really bad......

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2009
Taster from a 1l bottle. Clear light brown colour, light brown head. Aroma of caramel and metal. Flavour is very sweet, caramel, light hops, a bit like sweet bread, little metal in the finish. Light bodied. Although I thorouhgly dislike the style, this one is, although very sweet, not nearly as sweet as some other Dutch Oud Bruins I’ve had and thus drinkable.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Poured from a large screw top bottle, into a 0.2 litre, tall, thin tumbler behind the bar at t’ Pumpke, Valkenburg on 21st Oct 2012. Dark and extremely malty sweet: It was a dark brown almost black colour (but the bar is very dark, so I could be out a few shades in my eyes): on top a full, deep tan covering that hung around for the whole glass and produced some heavy lacing. The nose and taste were just too malty sweet for me really: the molasses just made this a malt drink, not a beer.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2004
Light caramel and light hops aroma. Dark brown color, light brown head, good lace. Very sweet, light, light hoppy, butterscotch. If it only was a bit less sweet and had a bit more roastiness it could be a very nice beer.

from draft at many of our local bars, dark brown pour with a caramel head, very sweet, caramel, malts, brown sugar, toffee, some roast, they use it here to blend it with pils. take note that this is no longer brewed in valkenburg, but at primus haacht

@Backlog Donker bruin bier, beige kraag, enorm moutig in aroma als in de smaak, bruine suiker en karamel, je moet er maar van houden, niet mijn ding, veel te zoet.
