Clear brown colour. Almost no aroma, only subtle notes of milk chocolate. Light-medium bodied with vague chocolate notes. Apart from that, nothing. Very one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bello Vino shared with freinds at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted malty, toffee and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced roasted flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Michael Jackson call this a Biere du Garde but it seemed more like a flavourless dubbel to me. Bought this in Maine in the fall of 2006. Page 108 of Micheal Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 436 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown color with a medium slightly fluffy like head. Quickly disappeared and left not noticeable lacing. Aroma was light malty with notes like caramel, toasted, spices. Maybe some hops can be detected in there as well. Body is surprisingly weak, and texture is very thin. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a light sweet finish. Not very exciting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark borwn, almost opaque with very shy off-white head that recedes to thin cover. Sweetish, sugary-malty aroma. A foamy mouthfeel with the dusty sweet fruit returning. Some wood, vegetal and alcohol also noticeable.
