Definitly not a biere de garde.Kind of like a oud bruin/scotch ale hybrid.Huge aromas of scotch,caramel and some kirsch.Big fluffy head to go with a beautiful medium-brownish red color.Smooth mouthfeel with notes of caramel,aniseed,burnt malt to go with a moderate clean and bitter orangy finish.The one I had was past its best-before date so that might explain why it developed scotch and spirits aromas which i dont remember getting with the ones i had before.

Bottle. Beautiful clear amber pour with a thick head. Aroma is sweet and bready, some fruit and caramel, quite nice. Flavour is also sweet, fruit and bread, a bit cloying without much bitterness to balance, but some nice flavours.

I had this bottle for some 3 years before finally opening it. Brownish amber - I rarely use the word "amber", but here I think that it does apply. Lovely aromas of sweet caramel and booze. Nice, malty on the tongue, sweet and rather spicy, more of the bakery stuff, such as allspice, with dried apricots and stone fruits.Full bodied, great concoction!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
De cara apresenta um tom marrom pouco comum. Seu aroma já deixa claro que é uma cerveja mais encorpada; uma mistura doce com um "que" de álcool.
Seu sabor é maltado forte característica tipica de uma cerveja com fermentação extra pós envase.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottiglia. Colore ramato intenso, schiuma non molto abbondante e poco persistente. Aroma di caramello (molto evidente), note di frutta dolce e malti. Gusto dolce ma per niente stucchevole, ben equilibrato, caramello sempre in netta evidenza. Finale lievemente amaro e secco. Ben carbonata e molto piacevole da bere. Positivamente sorpreso, birra molto buona.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a Biere de Garde, and it has beautiful creamy foam in a light amber and clear ale. Good fruit aromas rise from the glass and in its aroma you will also find the typical aroma of wheat malt and fresh grain. The taste has soft light butterscotch to begin with and it has an almost creamy fullness in the mouth, where it gently delivers little peach and citrus flavors that blends in well with its malt sweetness. Hop bitterness is continuous and forms a perfect setting for a very tasty and full-bodied ale.

Pours copper colour with finely conditioned head. Sweet with strawberry and sour fruit that quickly becomes very dry. Warming after from the ABV. Just not enough complexity to justify the one bottles your limit ABV.
