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").

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Aroma is smooth and malty with a hint of chocolate. Med body or better. Mild carb. Flavor is malt, very light chocolate, wood, light noble hop. It comes together very well in a slightly musty way. Gets very woodily astringent. Excellent ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere, French days 2008) shared by Tbone_ - thanks! As "brun".
Deep red. Aroma is sour initially, but roasted coffee later, and quite sweet. Good carbonation and sour in the mouth. Taste follows - a little sour too, and also roasted - that builds up over time. In some ways it’s a little watery, but on the whole it’s a pretty decent mix of tastes spoilt only by the unsophisticated sourness.

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.

Pours clear chestnut with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is mild, light chocolate, plums. Highish carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is suddenly kinda porter-like. Roasted, chocolate, light milky, some blackberries, mild malty tartness. Lots of malts, roasetd dry finish. Quite unbalanced.
