Pours a deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some light holiday spice and light fruity notes. Starts with some light toasty caramel sweetness and a touch light fruits and clove before a slightly drier and earthy finish. A pretty true to style and complex biere de garde.

750ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki) Shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
Very sweet aroma, fruity and a kttle cakey. Rich red, small head. Spicey, and a little bit cakey. Soft carbonation. Smooth sweet cakey palate. This hs aged moe than adequately, but it’s still too sweet and sticky. Not unpleasant, but just too sloppy and brash.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle RBWG 2010. Pours a nice medium amber with a low to mod carb and a medium to small head- lasting. Aroma is nutty, toasty and earth with some moderate caramel sweetness and light herbal phenolic yeastiness. Flavor is earth, toast, herbs light nuttiness, some honey sweetness and a good fresh doughiness and lightly burnt bread with good grassy bitter hop finish- nice.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Rich toffee nose, with golden raisins, ripe plums and just a touch of herbal hops. Beautiful, masterful display of malt. Taste is lightly sweet, just a touch of bitterness, herbal/floral hops, light caramel, bread and cracker, raisins, light pepper and dusty yeast. Tiny bit of roast on the finish. Well conditioned, gentle carbonation; soft silky body. Lovely stuff.

Clear orange yellow pour with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with banana and clove. Very very sweet flavor. Honey and molasses. Surprisingly hoppy finish.
