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

Poured from a 750mL bottled with a bottled on date of 6/24/13, so well aged; into a tulip.
Appearance - a deep red, auburn pour, cloudy, but carbonation bubbles appear when you examine the glass. Thick, bubbly off-white head produces a sticky curtain of lacing!
Smell - sweet and sour; oak barrels, red wine, hint of whiskey!
Taste - follows the nose with the sweet and sour candy, aged red wine and whiskey!
Feel - terrific blend of sweetness, sour and tart; mild body, smooth and flavorful!
Overall - I'm not a sour beer fan, however, this must be my favorite; likely due to the fact it is barrel aged and the bottle itself is aged roughly 17 months!

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a ruby brown coloring, with a tan halo of head. Nose of dark cherry, oak, old world fruit, booze, and tart sweetness. Flavors are tangy caramel, tart cherry, merlot characteristics, woody highlights, and a subtle acidic note. Robust and full-bodied. The aftertaste is tart cherry all over, with some merlot and cabarnet notes, with a dry, lingering, tart finish. Heavy brew.
