Flanders Oud Bruin |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A Flanders style brown ale. We took Chomo-lung-ma (our organic honey nut brown) and aged it in a second generation Woodford Reserve barrel (subtle bourbon flavor, notes of American oak) for four months with 30lbs of tart cherries and a specially blended culture of wild yeast and beer souring bacteria. Chunga's Old Bruin exhibits and aroma of sweet cherries and faint chocolate/ roasted malt complemented by a faint oak bouquet. The flavor has a pronounced sour character with the caramel, chocolate, and roasted malt finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown with some reddish flecks. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Cherry, strong acidity. Chocolate malts. Some notes of a bourbon barrel. Oak and vanilla.

Taste - Bright cherry. Sour. The brown ale comes through, though. Caramel and chocolate malt. Some vanilla and oak, again reminiscent of a bourbon barrel. Some red wine characteristics.

Mouthfeel - Oaky. Sour, but not over sour, as Jackie O's tends to be.

Overall - Complex and flavorful. All the flavors are distinct and still work well together.

Serving type: bottle
