COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Reddish brown. no head. pretty acetic with vinegar on the nose. a touch of raisins. Taste is oaky, sweet and tart. Vinegar is pretty apprent. Taste like a soured porter in some ways with roasted qualities.

Bottle @ The Bruery. Pours thin dark brown with a reddish tint and thin creamy head. Aroma is light fruity sourness with a bit of caramel malt. Taste is mild dry caramel malt, big pucker on the finish. Leathery, earthy finish. Much drier and less fruity than the ISO:FT. a bit more barrel aged notes, but on balance I liked it better.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle - Pours rosy brown with a thin bubbly tan head. Nose is vinegar and oak with cherries. Pretty sweet. Taste is the same, with lots of cherry, bold malt, balsamic vinegar, and an oaky finish. Bubbly and thinnish and much too vinegary. Kind of a mess.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle for a big rate. Pours out a dark ruby tinged brownish color with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is of cherries, wood, comples tart sourness, light vinegar and some earthy leather. Taste is complex, sour cherries, oak barrel, tart funk, horse blanket, burnt roast, light molasses, leather and not much of a tell of the alcohol. Damn expensive bottle, but totally worth it.

HonusWagner (1323) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2013
By far the best sour thing that CCB has ever had a hand in, with ample notes of fruit and a rich oud bruin malty character. My one gripe is that there’s a LOT of acetic acid, and I’m not the type for Tums-endorsed beers.

750 ml bottle shared by J. Poured a ugly muddy brown with an average sized beige head. Aroma was acidic with notes of old balsamic vinegar, used band aids, sourness, old cherry, stale bread and wet leather. Medium bodied with loads of acidity and a long lingering burn from the sourness remains long after you swallow. Flavor is strong sour notes lots of earth, wet wood funk wet bread, medicinal cherry flavor, sour rotting lemon. Time definitely brought out a ton of sour and funk on this one.

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a small lingering head that left nice lacing. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, oak and some funk. Flavor was sour cherries, balsamic vinegar, funk, oak tannins, and had a dry tart finish.

Peacehammer (615) - California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
dark brown. Big oak sour nose. Nice, manageable sour up front, that gives way to oak tannin and some dark malt. Truly fantastic.

750mL from Sparky. Thanks! A: Very dark red with a lack of head. Solid looking with good carbonation. N: Acetone, glue, bleu cheese. Sour cherries, a touch of ginger. Some leather, tannins, and oak. T: More of the cherry mixed with acetone. Tannins and sour on a moderate-high level. Some harsh solvents. M: Decent amount of carbonation and medium body. O: Don’t know why they chose an imperial oud bruin when the normal version is so hard to get right. Would be a lot better if they’d gone that route.

Bottle at home, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man!! Pour is murky burnt caramel with little to no head; decent lacing. Big sour cherries, vinegar, wood, light caramel, brown sugar, red grapes, and raisins in the aroma. Taste is medium sour, cherry pit, vinegar, light acetone, plums, and dark grapes with a medium sour finish. Light body with soft carbonation. Not a bad sour brown.
