Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry yet sticky end.

I wish I had more to say about this one but I wrote down my ratings and forget to add comments. Well take my ratings for what they are...

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is like the same brewery’s Rebelle, but stronger, and with slight but noticable chocolate/licorice notes from a greater amount of amber or crystal malt. Some stale biscuit notes, but less of the damp leaves. Overall, more pleasant and enjoyable than Rebelle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. White lasting head. Clear dark amber body. Bottle and labels could fool someone into believing that it is containg wine. Why ? Barley aroma and mild barley flavor with notes of cocoa and vanilla.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Foxy-chestnut colour; smaller yellowish-creamy head. Heavily oxydized nose. Apparently no BBd, but beer seems to have been bottled March ’04. Hmmm. Nutty, buttery, cooking quality Madeira aromas. Sweet, malty, madeirised, very malty as in Kraftmalz; tastes as some artisanal or homemade cola drink. Bit watery MF, light bodied, but a background slickness, nearly cloying. All consistent with an ungraciously (sorry for the plagiarism, CC) aged. "Bière de Garde" means a beer fit for keeping. If a beer is near exhausted after 2 years, then I won’t call it fit for laying down. Sod it, I’ve berated people for calling every malt drink from Northern Gallia "BdG", but it would seem some brewers aren’t being any wiser.
