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 from Beers of Europe. Amber coloured bright beer with white head. Toasty malts, small hint of yeast, bitterness in finish. Quite clean tasting and pleasant enough. I didn’t quite get the point of this beer - if I want a toasty quaffable ale I can get an Alt or Amber at c5%, and if I want something stronger I get more complexity with any Belgian style for 8.5%, this kind of sits in between.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Clear rich amber copper with excellent thick white head. Pleasant interesting aroma, mainly spicy and fruity with some complex notes. Medium body, well carbonated. Taste has a nice spicy bite, perhaps largely from the alcohol, from start to finish. This is overlaid on a nicely balanced mix of subtle toffee sweetness and tangy fruitiness. There’s some bitterness in the finish. Overall a very nice strong beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep but reasonably clear amber with a thick off white head that sticks to the glass. Complex aromas encompassing malt, caramel fudge, hints of orange peel, alcohol, macerated fruits and esters. Similar flavours of caramel, macerated fruit, esters and slight oak notes, although the alcohol dominates and detracts.
