1.93/5  rDev -24%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: dark brown, great clarity, no head at all (just a wimpy bunch of bubbles)

Aroma: coca cola, wet dog, dark malts, wood, caramel, iron, roots

Flavor: slightly sweet, dark malts, licorice, a bit vegetal, finishes dry with an aftertaste of iron and wood

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, low carbonation

Overall Impression: Disappointing. Bland and watery. Much different than I expected. Another semi mass-produced example of mediocrity.

A - A more red than brown beer with a small layer of foam. The foam sticks just a tiny bit to the glass. The fluid is clear and has no carbonation.

S - A old and overdated smell. Like a honey bee hive, some what waxy.

T - A watery beer with traces of honey but overall a rather dry beer. Bittertones are not really present.

M - Medium to high carbonation.

O - Not a good beer. Nothing to go for at all.

Served into a mini Chimay goblet at Lucky Baldwin's.

This was the only bummer of a beer I had at Lucky Baldwin's Belgian Festival.

Semi watery looking brown color. Not much of any aroma - maybe some breadiness. Taste follows suit. Watery, with only a bit in the way of standard caramel malts. I think I'd rather be drinking a Newcastle. It just tastes like a watered down brown. Mouthfeel, as such, is low. Too watery. Drinkability is average, as it would be easy to session aside from the fact that it's boring.

It was still worth trying, but I can't recommend it.

BB 1-06. Nice head and a clear dark brown almost black beer. Nose is litle pale giving some malts, litle sweetness and rusty& cartboardlike nose. Very clean, nowhere a flanders oud bruin IMO. As is taste that's also very pale giving lots of sweetness, maltyness that's even litle wortlike and not much bitterness. Not much taste and hardly get any darkmaltarome's but no big off flavors in this one. Very dull mouthfeel though as this one just needs something to make it really wortwhile. Drinkable brew but IMO litle flas and dull.

Sampled at Lucky Baldwins, February 2007
The beer sits in my glass a dark, slightly purplish, clear, burnt amber color. It is topped by a thin tan colored head that one would expect from draught beer. The aroma is fruit focused with a sort of earthy spice character: I get notes of reminds me of a mix of clove, coriander, raisins and prunes. There is a lot of malt character here as well in the form of caramel malt character.

The taste is sweet and fruity up front with quite noticeable notes of prune, raisins and figs. There is a spicy character here that is a combination of both the carbonation and a light spice / higher alcohol derived piquant character. This beer is a bit too simplistic to be great, it is very drinkable though. This really seems to satisfy a sweet tooth without being too rich or sticky.

Dark brown with reddish nuances up into the light, some foamy spots and some bubbly lacing.
Doesn't smell too strong, very very faint vinegar, some berries, some caramel, some weird herbs, faint floral tea, not sure what to expect.
Ok... Sweet malts at first, caramel, backed by some mild fruitiness, with some cherries (just a tiny bit sour, not too much), some red apples and raisin. Some spices follow, clove, herbs, plantain, peppercorn, but they're all pretty vague and mixed up. Floral honey hints. Finish is dry, a bit of grassy bitterness and some woody notes.
Medium body, watery at times, low carbonation.
Not sure it's exactly an Oud Bruin, tho that's what it "wants" to be. Falls short, and not entirely enjoyable anyway.
