3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Remarkable blend of Gulpener Oud Bruin with a wood-aged beer undergoing a controlled lactic infection and sweetened. Made for De Zwarte Ruiter and in existence for many years already. The result is very much like a Flemish oud bruin, with yellowish foam and a dark burgundy colour. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, overripe fruits, Worcestershire sauce, sour cream, sherry; fruity and malty taste ’cleansed’ by a soft lactic acidity, some woodiness, dryish sourish finish. A classic, predating many attempts at oud bruin made by younger breweries.
