COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Adriaen Brouwer, which is re-fermented in the bottle, is surprisingly complex. The nose of this Oudenaarde Brown beer features malt, caramel and dry fruit, with the merest hint of acidity. The finish is bitter-sweet, and the alcohol adds a warm glow. A balanced beer with a full mouth-feel. Could the painter and bon vivant Adriaen Brouwer have wished for anything more?

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/3/2013. Thanks to Jay for the bottle! 11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a cloudy burgundy color with evident carbonation rising up to the top. Seeing as I intentionally poured the bottle to maximize the head, it was a five finger light mocha color. The retention is weird - instead of just gradually fading, the texture just becomes more bubbly, until it collapses in on itself. The end result is a much creamier looking one finger mocha-colored head that leaves massive clumps of lacing on the glass. If any beer was made for a Duvel tulip, this one is it. S: Apple, pear, chocolate, caramel, and brown sugar. Rather simple by BSDA standards, with a weird metallic note detracting some. T: Theres an initial quality of apple/pear yeast esters, before the beer finishes with notes of chocolate, raisin, and brown sugar sweetness. Occasionally, a bit of hops appear. This is definitely on the dubbel side of the BSDA fence. Theres very little thought provoking complexity, rather it fits into the category of simple refreshment. M: The vibrant carbonation gives this a light, airy texture. Actually, the vibrant carbonation makes this one really scratchy and even harsh. Its pretty difficult to focus on the initial smoothness of the malt structure when the palate is being bombarded with carbonation and - to a lesser extent - astringency. Aftertaste is a touch sweet after a while, but this manages to subdue the booze quite well. O: Certainly, it wont give Rochefort 8 any fits, but its not a bad choice for a BSDA. Keeping in mind its flaws (rampant overcarbonation, simple flavors, metallic aroma), its still decent.

0.33 bottle.A semi-hazy, dark crimson color and small, off-white head leaving no lacing. The aroma is made up of dark malts and not much more. A sweet taste of dark malts, yeasts, and some sugar. A medium body, a slick texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is alright, nothing special about it. Overall the beer could be much better - its carbonation level is a big blunder.

ForlornHope (470) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle at home. Lively pour, red-brown and with a rocky off-white head. Malty aroma. Taste is sweetish to begin, then a balancing bitterness. Flavours of roasted malt, quite crisp, and with other hints of fruit, licorice and a light peppery hop. Rich and satisfying, very pleasant.

susonagger (202) - spain, - APR 16, 2016
specto: Adriaen Brouwer Dark Gold luce un color ocre, rojizo al trasluz, que no deja ver a travs del vaso. Sobre el caldo se posa una majestuosa capa de espuma beix de burbuja gruesa, muy esponjosa y muy duradera. Se aprecia una mnima carbonatacin en forma de burbujas diminutas que ascienden despacio. - Aroma: El aroma hace presencia al instante, dejando un olor malteado, alcohlico, floral y levemente afrutado, como ctrico. - Cuerpo / Sabor: El sabor es maltoso y lleno de matices afrutados, con base de chocolate y caramelo, y presencia justa del alcohol, que le da fuerza al trago. Se perciben tintes de licor, malta torrefacta y un final levemente cido, suave y delicioso.
