Do try out Yellow Sea by Micallef. It starts out brighter and fresher with lemon and lavender, but has a strong animalic civet/castoreum note throughout, along with a good deal of benzoin.
Only problem is that it's longevity is not necessarily better.
Two other suggestions: Djin and Monk by Michael Storer. Both quite animalic!
I also, somewhat hesitantly recommend checking out Bond's New York Oud. It's somewhat similar to your typical Montale oud/rose but is simultaneously more velvety and refined, and also more animalic than most. It's not quite as dark as Al Oudh, but it does have a human sweat and slightly animalic facet in its musk & honey accord, which stretches from the opening of the scent to the base. It's dark but not as inky black as Al Oudh.
