Dark sour ale aged in oak barrels. A collaboration between The Bruery and Cigar City Brewing, this Imperial Oud Bruin is layered with aromas of cranberries, tropical fruits, leather, and aged balsamic, balanced by wood tannins and roasted malt.

Wow, this was worth the wait... Aged 3 years in the bottle... Aroma of leather, vinous notes, oak, and cranberries... Flavor is amazingly complex, muted tartness, likely from the aging, red wine, bourbon, cranberries, brown malts, vinegar.... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via JohnGalt1, thank you sir! Dark garnet in color with a thin beige head that quickly fades. Nose of sours, vinegar, and woody. Lightly vinous. Translates well into the flavor with the wood adding a subtle dry character. Some deep vinous notes and balanced vinegar flavors. Good sour.

Bottle from trade recently. Shared with friends at the Pig. Awesome brownish-amber pour with a thin white head. Snifters. Aroma of cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, slight vinegar, wood barrel, and malts. The taste was very complex especially as it warmed. Cherries, blackberries, black raspberries were the backbone of the tartness. You also get the leather, wood barrel, roasted malts, and vinegar notes but it balanced very well. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, serious tart and fruity finish. REALLY enjoyed this one from the Bruery and CCB.

Bottle share @ Surly Darkness day 2013. Pour is hazy brown with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor is sour and dry - tannic oak, light fruit, cherries. Finish is very dry with some slight berry sweetness.

Une délicieuse oud bruin grasse et vineuse avec des tannins délicats pour enrober le tout. Beaucoup de fruits foncés et un soupcon acétique qui se laisse dominer par l’éventail des malts. Content d’avoir attendu.

750ml bottle shared by Brad. Oaky dry aroma. Thick brown amber body. Soured out bourbon tones. Has some of that dry, mineral Bruery house flavor, but still rather delicious. Puckering sour tones, muted brown malt. Big new school US sour. Quality.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. Not sure why I took so long to drink this one. Reddish amber pour with a thin head. Slight nail polish note in the nose along with some balsamic vinegar. Vinegar tartness up front followed by cherry skins, oak, and leather. Very long finish. Should have opened this sooner.

Rating #2600 - I have been trying to clear out my collection of Bruery beers for a while now. Now seemed like a good time to see how the collaboration with Cigar City panned out. Picked up a long time ago at Lizardville this was no letdown. A spendy special release turned out to be worth the expense.

Aroma / Appearance - A ruby red base shimmers heavily in the glass. Vanilla head and icy legs accompany the tart cherries, vinegar, and a sour feel that is right in line for the style without being overly acidic.

Flavor / Palate - Vinegar, cherries, black raspberries, ad more dark fruits coat the tongue with a pleasant sourness. After the first few sips the alcohol emerges. Radiating warmth over the palate it brings waves of enjoyable tartness. Malt driven and bold this beer is the hallmark of an American sour.

The beer poured great with a solid dark amber, brownish hue that passes through almost no light, a nice off brown head and some lacing on the glass. The beer smells decent with a sour note of dark fruit and some oak barrel aging on the back end. The beer tastes outstanding (better than oude tart) with a definite oak barrel aged sour fruity flavor. The mouthfeel is decent with a definite dry and bitterness to it and the beer is well carbonated. Overall, better than Oude Tart but a solid a sour ale...recommedned.
