Frothy, fully diminishing head. Excellent lace. Murky black body. Nose of malts (cookie, strax) and light hops. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavour. Very short finish. Light to medium bodied.
(on bottle)What is it with a beer so weak? Biere de garde is weak bber for this brewhouse? Hm, nothing, but a nice deep brown color here. And we really tried, a whole bottle and we diden´t find any body. IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - APR 11, 2004
Dark brown in color with a beige foamy head. A sweet raisin scent, dusty old raisins. A foamy mouthfeel with the dusty sweet fruit returning. Some wood, vegetal and alcohol also noticeable. talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Bottled 01-06. Pours a dark brown color with hints of red and an average, beige, fizzy-rocky head; it is mostly diminishing leaving minimal scattered lacing. Nose is fairly one dimensional with light chocolate, prune, and hints of earthy hazlenut. Flavor is similar with dominant prune, toffee, earthy notes, soy sauce, and a bit of a stale tone. Palate is light to medium, moderate to lively carbonation, but still silky feeling. Finishes with some lightly roasted notes coming into play bringing just enough bitterness with some lingering prune notes. Not a bad beer, but lacking any depth or dimension. Not as focused or as delicate as some of the better examples of the style. Would not buy again but still an intriguing style. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
Light brown head that quickly diminishes leaving small lace. Very dark red-brown colou. Malt, raisins and chocolate in the aroma. Medium to full body. Taste is mostly sweet and chocolate, nice, but lacking a little something... Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2010
Brown with a low head. Aroma of nuts, caramel malts and yeast. The flavour is rather weak, sweet with some fruity notes.
