75 cL bottle # 53/250, another fantastic brew courtesy of fiulijn. Pours murky dark brown with a minimal tan head. Solid acidic and milky aroma, mild roasted caramel malt. Sweet and smooth wineous fruity and caramelish flavoured. Nice milky touch to a mild acidic and vague citric base flavour. Light phenolic touch before the finish. Dry and slight chemical touch. Dry finish, yet also quite fruity.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2010
Bottled. A hazy red-brown beer with a thick brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, and acidic fruits - reminding me of a Flemmish red. The flavor is lightly acidic with notes of fruit - the acidity leaving a light burn in the throat.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
The color is almost black; medium creamy head. There is an interesting mix of roasted malt and vinegar aroma. Caramel and roasted malts flavor, with a strange lactic sourness, some acetone; almost a sour Stout (I don’t think that roasted malt and sourness marry well). It’s good that in France somebody starts brewing such beers, but it’s still far away from the best Oud Bruin.
