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.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a semi-hazy brown with a beige head of foam. Aroma is bracingly sour and dry. Some cherries and green apple come through. Super tart and dry. Dries the mouth out immediately upon first sip. Holy shit is this sour.

Pours a deep shade of crimson with a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates to a smattering of foam on the top. The aroma is sweet with a hint of tart and balsamic. Sweet brown sugar mixes with tart cherries and plums with hints of tannic oak and light tart fruits. The flavor is tart and funky up front, but not bracingly so. Lemons and tart cherries mix with a bit of vinegar and tart fruits. A woody funk comes through mixed with brown sugar coated tart berries. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart mouthfeel going on. I thought this was pretty good, but for my tastes I’d have liked a bit more tart and carbonation.

Review 1200! 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in Spring 2011 (nearing 2 years old). Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a small 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big sour cherry, cranberry, apple, toast, grass, hay, oak, balsamic vinegar, red wine, earth, tobacco, light leather, funk, and light herbal. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of huge tart and sour cherry, cranberry, oak, toast, apple, raisin, hay, grass, earth, red wine, balsamic vinegar, funk, leather, tobacco, light yeast spiciness, and light citrus peel. Nice amount of tartness and sourness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour dark fruits, toast, oak, hay, grass, leather, balsamic vinegar, red wine, tobacco, earth, yeast spiciness, and light citrus peel on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of flavors; with a great sourness/sweetness balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly slick and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is very nice; nicely acidic without being overbearing. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic sour brown ale! Big complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on even with the acidity. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

Bottle. Cheers to Crosamich for hooking me up with this! The pour’s a deep reddish brown with a small head. The nose is balsamic, red berry. Funk, mild vinegar and wood. The taste is red berry, lightly vinous. A bit of umami ketchup. Salty wood. Jammy sweet finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, a nie Flanders red. Well played.

Taste is sweet, medium sour, with lots of wood and bourbon notes. Finish is very dry, with a little tartness and oak. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Interesting beer for sure.

750 ml bottle served in a FFF teku glass. Shared with fellow BA danielnovak3. A: Pours a dark cherry red color with brown hues in the body. Thin off white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring. It leaves some light spots of lace. S: Some cherry skins with a tart raspberry undertone. There is some thick maltiness with a touch of oak. Mild leather notes are present as well. T: The body of this beer is incredibly malty. Some sweet dark cherry flesh and some tart respberry. There is a mild sour pucker with an oaky touch. The barrel produces some sweetness, but the malts really hit back in the finish. M: Medium bodied with a little too much heft. Medium carbonation and a malty sweetness is on the finish. O: The body of the beer was just too big and malty. I know the style was an "imperial" oud bruin, but I don’t think the style really works. Not enough tartness and puckering to back up the big malt body. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-15-2012
