2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BB 09/2008)
Ruby color, not much head. Grassy, a bit toffeish aroma. Cellary, slightly sourish taste. Very earthy, grassy biere de garde. Very French with English influence, not like Belgian brunes (label says "brune").

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cl, from the brewery. Deep dark brown color, thin but persistant foamy head. Malt, toffee and a hint of licorice in the aroma. Malty, salty flavor (Maris otter malt?) with laurel, caramel and licorice. Long salty aftertaste. Very British, very well made and not without complexity, just a tad thin, maybe.

A hazy dark red beer with a small collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is dry with notes of roated bread as well as a light smoke note.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright from the conditioning tank.
Deep amber almost brown colour. Dense appearance with juiciness and richness. Spicy malt flavour with mature hop complexity. Nice but too strong to be session beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark with plenty of aroma and bitterness. Fairly strong. The bottles condition well and the drink seems to improve further with time in the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Strange mix of Biere de Garde and English real ale. Very hoppy in aroma and flavour but with a buttery malt background, deep red brown in colour with low condition and a dry finish. Comes in a 750ml corked bottle like a Biere de Garde and is bottle conditioned.
