Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Dark bière de garde and therefore by definition more of a Belgian dubbel. Pale beige, equal, not very thick but fairly stable head, colour very dark brown with warm orange glow, tiny yeast bits floating around like in the Ambrée. Powerfully malty aroma, lots of fruity esters, chocolate, caramel, raisins, stewed pears, liquorice, banana, some red cabbage (DMS) as well. Rounded fruity taste, dark malts (caramel, nuts, chocolate), fresh citrus touch, sourish and mineral-like carbonation, sweetish but finishing dry with leafy hops, some port-wine-like sweetness and some warming alcohol. Too bad for the DMS in the aroma, otherwise this would have been as good as the Ambrée.

330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki)
Quite a pleasant raisiny aroma. Nice mid brown, tight but small beige head. Soft smooth rich body, and gentle carbonation. Sweetish malty body, pleasant roast. Altogether remarkably good for this brewery, I do actually quite like it.

chrisv10 (11238) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle, 7.5%. Clear dark amber/brown with tiny off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, yeast and a little bread. Flavour is malt, caramel, yeast, hop, medium sweet and a little bitter.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 33cl bottle from Cellier des Arcades. Labelled as a Biere de Garde, and it seems more in that vein than the mostly-non-existent BSA. Pours a clearish brown, like Coka-Cola, with a small biege surface film. The aroma is quite nice, rich caramalts, bread, dates, and an earthy note. Flavour is also quite nice with a really deep malt body, cola, dates, caramel, bread and biscuit. Feels lighter for the abv, but not in a bad way. The sweetness is kept in check by the carbonation and the somewhat dry finish. Really good stuff, worth checking out.

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle from Grape & Grind, Bristol. Medium bronw with hints of red and a rocky, off-white head. Sweet caramel, marzipan and prune aroma. Flavour was very sweet, with candy sugar, fruit cake and chocolate, leading to a burnt, creme brulee finish. Too sweet for me.

Koelschtrinker (10838) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Wenig hefig-säuerlicher Antrunk mit zurückhaltender Malznote. Im Mittelteil wird das Malz etwas intensiver, die Säuerlichkeit wird in selbem Maße stärker und steurt so das Malz gezielt. Im Abgang noch einmal etwas säuerlicher, das Malz nistet sich im Hintergrund ein und mischt sich einer allgemeinen Würzigkeit bei. Diese bleibt auch nach Wegfall der Säuerlichkeit im Nachgeschmack aktiv, wirkt aber etwas kraftlos. 11/9/8/8/10/9

Cloudy brown beer, thick white head. Soft creamy and frothy texture. Sweet malt with just a touch of marmite. Soft semi dry finish. Sumptuos!

Eructoblaster (3059) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle - 330ml. Dark amber body with a thick off-white foamy head. its malty/hoppy aroma carries grainy and caramel hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced taste with grainy and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Average product.

Gary (1407) - Brentford London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2010
Another nice rustic frog biere.. Complex smell of earthy chocolate..nuttiness..treacly rich malt and tinned fruit salad covered in raw alcohol. Good lenghth of flavaz. Nutty burnt caramel..earth and ceral..pretty sweet and syrupy. A bit like a Dubble in texture, minus the soy saue
