Style: Flanders Oud Bruin

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

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.

Clear burnt brown with no head, the smell is old man and dog breath with dirty socks and sticky stale cherries.

Taste is a different story, with a toasty char, cherry, oak, and cigar skin that has a nice sourness, but also a thin body and semi-dry finish.

It's too bad the smell is horrendous.
