Had on tap. Well done in the feel and taste, with edgy sourness but not overly so, keeping the dark sweet elements of cherry, raisin, chocolate and toffee pudding at the forefront. Some acidity and large wood compliment. Flavor opens up more in taste than smell, with pretty nice depth and toasty warm booze and malt.

750ml bottle served in a large snifter. Bottled on 2017-09-04. Given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours dark reddish brown with smallish head and medium to low carbonation. Smell is nice -- tart cherries. Sour.

Taste is tart, cherries, a little muddy. Not particularly standout, but good.

Mouthfeel is dry, and nice. Overall, nice beer.

My favorite oud bruin, but I like that it's more bitter, less sweet, and more sour. It's still an oud bruin, right? There's a mild malty, sweet praline character. Then biting lemon rinds kick in with an earthy bitterness. The aroma is a bit plain with simple barnyard, but I have few complaints.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #84 (Jan 2014):

Amazing. Funkwerks without a doubt has a firm grasp on what it takes to make stellar barrel-aged beer, though this one is a bit rough around the edges. Perhaps a bit too acidic and a tad too dry from the wood, though that’s somewhat expected from the whiskey barrels. Overall, a great sour, but another 6 – 12 months in the bottle could help mellow this Oud Bruin out a bit.

STYLE: Flanders Oud Bruin
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Limited

LOOK: Excellent show of froth, cloudy dark brown color

SMELL: Thick oakiness, vinous, tart, musty cellar, faint tart cherry, phenolic, mint, hint of vanilla

TASTE: Smooth, slick mouthfeel, semidry, moderate-sized body, oaky, tart, leather, toasty, mild hoppiness, raisins, hint of booze, vague vinous note, bone-dry finish
