Depending on the thickness and pan size... possibly slightly under-baked. In an 8x8 inch pan at 350 defF they generally take about 45 min to achieve a fudge-like yet fully cooked brownie.

Brownies on the fudgy category are always going to be a bit oily due the the large amount of butter. If you don’t like that style and texture seek a recipe for “cake brownies”.

Brownie style discussions can get heated...

seems like a tiny amount of flour compared to the rest of the ingredients?

do you melt the butter/chocolate either extremely gently, or in a bain marie?

does "adding" the eggs in mean beating them in? hard?

Yes, it was bain marie, and I added eggs but did not whisk hard, though some air managed to get into the mixture.
