Bottle brought home from Paris. Bubbling brown look with a red tone and a very small head. Nice caramel and candyflosh aroma, nuts and light fruity yeast. Medium bitter flavor, light acidic and quite fresh. Great within the style

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
330mL. Pours clear, deeper red with a medium, suddy brown head. Weak retention and no lace. Nose is at first a bit vegetal with heavier malt. Taste is tangy and malty. More BdG style. Malt forward and a bit rustic and wheat bread crusty. Not bad at all. No metallic no soap no wateriness. 3.7 for BdG. Heavy malt forward beer. Richer and oily with raisin oatmeal and rye rustic grain. Good stuff. BDG on the spot. Perhaps richer and actually more on the spot than the Page 24 beers. Very nice ultra malt forward beer. No sticky sweetness. Raw multi grain crust and Irish oatmeal. Thick oily palate. Great stuff. Takes some patience.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2011
750ml (Alvinne webshop) - shared with The Beer Sommelier - thanks!
7 Beautifully sweet fruity aroma, some ripe apple.
4 Lovely rich reddy brown, full beige head, settles to a ring.
7 Sweet woody taste, some dry sweet hazelnut, again sweet apple. Beautifully mellow.
4 Super smooth palate, sweetish, gentle carbonation. Gentle woody finish. 14 This one ’garde’d very well. Not getting sourness that others were unfortunate to get, and if anything the mellowness of the whoe experience was the highlight. No shocks, no thrills, just lovely tasty sweetish woody ale.

Brandman (2836) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Dark red to brown body, offwhite head. Aroma has vinegar, sour chocolate tart. Good though, but feels like that’s not supposed to be there. Light and smooth. Some caramelly malts.
