330 ml bottle. BB 26/12/14. From saveur-biere.com.
My advent calender door number 15 gave me this one. It’s dark mahogany coloured with a big light tan head. Sweet dark fruits, spices and dry maltiness. Very nice. The flavour is also quite yummy with dark fruits, some sweetness, spices, dry woody malt and mild alcohol.

Clear amber brownish appearance with medium head. Malty with some scents of roast and coffee, sweet and slightly bitter, alcohol isn’t too noticeable, slightly odd aftertaste though. Good Biere de Garde style.

Erasmus_ro (1289) - Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2013
75cl bottle. Pours a dark coppery brown with a medium, beige head. Aroma is earthy and malty. A lot of breadiness, a dab of dark fruits, prunes and plums. Somewhat herbal. Taste is semisweet, earthy with a lot of dark malts and breadiness. Dark bread and dark fruits. Prune, apple on the finish. Nettles and black currant on the aftertaste. Spiciness. Soft, smooth and medium. Not much in the way of carbonation. Could be a bit fuller. Finally a French Bière de Garde that has a good character of its own.

bottle .75. dark copper. malty nose, hazelnuts, sweet malts. and bacon. body is medium full. brown malty, musky. one of the better bdg’s I’ve had, not overly sweet or murky. but being no fan of the style, a sample is quite enough for me.

dark orange-amber, hazy. Tan head 1cm thick, fine, moderate-slow decay. Aroma contains blueberry malted milkshake, hint of chocolate, hazelnut. Light-medium body. Flavor: Touch of nutty toffee candy. Touch of tart pickle. Herbal hops and light chlorine. Light dry breadcrust. Not super sweet. Good, surprising tart flavor not apparent in the aroma.
