Our Lindeboom Oud Bruin (Old Brown) has its own drinkers. This sweet and very malty beer is distinctly dark. Fans drink it as dark beer, but also add it to Lindeboom Pilsener to make a ’half-and-half’ or an ’infusion’. The flavour and colour of Lindeboom Oud Bruin are the result of the traditional brewing process, where, during the brewing a very dark malt syrup is added to the brew and afterwards the beer is even sweetened a little. Lindeboom Oud Bruin is as sweet as life is here.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Pours a brown colour with a white head. Fruity aroma with light notes of chocolate and caramel. Thin texture. An very easy beer to drink and quite refreshing.

Lowenbrau (3237) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 8, 2012
Caramel aromas, brown color, non persistent light brown head, really sweet taste, no hints of sourness at all, Light body, medium carbonated. Definitellly not what i understand an Oud Bruin should be. Maybe mixing it up with a pilsner, as said in the description, would improve it.

vanvenlo (1787) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2012
4-Jan-2012 (Warners at the Bay - $4) Light sweet choc malt and very light hop fruit aroma. Dark brown colour, ordinary head out of bottle and no lacing. Simple sweet choc malt flavour. Light bittering, syrupy palate and a stale sick malt aftertaste. I’m glad this beer was a cheapie, but l guess this may true to oud bruin.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2011
330mL bottle Ruby body, persistant tight white head. Aroma of malt extract and caramel, bit of a vinous red berry edge to it. Light bodied, lowish carbonation, drying on the finish. Very sweet up front, almost cloyingly so. Caramel, cola flavours, drops away quickly, funky sort of almost lactic twang on the finish. Low bitterness. Way too sweet, something to balance out of the sweetness (bitterness/sourness) would be nice. No my thing that’s for sure.

EugeneStraver (166) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2011
Home 20110529 (30 cl bottle): A clear rubish-red beer with a good brown foam layer. Hardly no smell (malty/caramel and sweet). A strong sweet taste with some brown-malltyness. In the finish slighty hopbitter but still sweet and sticky. Not so nice sweetness.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2011
Dark brown body with short lasting head. Sugary caramel aroma with the taste not much better. Tried to like it somewhat but couldn’t.

Bottle: Deep chestnut-amber coloured, no head to speak of; sweet burnt malt and instant-coffee in the nose; very sweet flavour, light bodied; short sweet malty finish, almost no counterweight detectable. No repetition necessary....

Quinten (1060) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2010
At an mitra in purmerend, brown, foamy head, lots of sweets and some burnt grainy, a tipicale oud bruin.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Sweet sugary caramelly flavor with molasses. Hint of chicken food. Sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet.
