Sour almost vinegar, oak, musty deep reddish-brown, garnet(finally found a use for that word)...very little foam. acidic sweet tanginess in the finish, not a lot of malt, but a bit! enjoyable lingering taste??? You gotta like the funk/acid to like this beer. I'd like to use it in a sauce...

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Paid $1.50 for a 250ml bottle. (Petrus Oak Aged Dark Beer is what this is labled here). Dark amber in hue, with some floaters, no head. Looks like wine almost. Very stong alcohol scent... a little tiny bit smoked, but not much. Taste is sweetly bitter, but not beittersweet. Has a hint, but only a hint of smokiness, but also has a tangy raisen and earthy, woody, something taste. Not bad. It’s really growing on me. Mouth is a little thin, but it suits this particulra beer well. Glad I found it, it definitely wasn’t a waste of money.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 Bottled. Dark red-garnet colour, creamy light nut-brownish head, fully diminishing. Malty aroma (walnut, toasted bread), fruity (dates, preserved plums with their syrup and clove, weak cherry), wet wood, lactic acid. Taste is light-sweet and sour, very refreshing. Retronasal wet woody, cherry skin and stone. Light body, watery texture. Quite sour-dry dark beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Dark brown color with big tan head. Acidic cherry taste. Went very nicely with a hard, smoked, flaky gouda.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark red-brown liquid with caramel colored head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Aroma is of sweet mellon, and fruit. Flavor is of sweet fruit, and caramelized something. Very good. Has character. Nothing to be ashamed of. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Boutip (4852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2004
Poured a dark red brew with a nice head. Aroma of cherry (probably from coming from the oak) with acidic taste. Body is a bit light and no complexity. I would have appreciated a bit more spice or aftertaste. Overall, this is a very average oud brun and I won't be seeking this one anytime soon.

Cloudy mahogany color with a quick lasting head. Wierd aroma. Cherries and other fruit. Light sour flavor. Fruit and light hops. First of the style and very interesting!!

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2004
very dark mahogany, quick fizzy head. Complex aroma, sour cherries. Flavour is incredible! Evident fruit, hoppy, lingering sourness. My first of the style and I'm quite impressed. I'll have to hunt down some others.
