Roasted malts aroma. Dark brown color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, light bitter, roasted, licorice, burnt sugar, laurel. Flavorful, well brewed, not exceptional.
75 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet and brewmashy with a nice set of fruity and roasted notes. Flavour has the same with a sweet caramel malt, roasted notes and somewhat fruity accents. Light nutty and caramelish dark finish. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2011
A beginner Biere de Garde. Is a little dark but also very watery. But tastes really good. jaghana (6110) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle 25cl, a dark beer with low head. Nose is malty with caramel, chocolate and licorice notes. Aroma is very sweet with caramel and brown bread notes and metallic with nutty finish, body is less complex. The beer is more a German Dunkel than any thing else, not bad just too sweet, finish is hopy and with high carbonation.

Dark bière de garde with beige, equal, high head and very dark mahogany colour, filtered and clear. Aroma of walnuts, liquorice, coffee liqueur, cassis, nutmeg, raisins, chocolate, straw; taste a well-rounded fruitiness, subdued sweetness, malty, smooth with a bit oily mouthfeel, drying carbonation, finishing with a roasted bitterishness and subtle peppery hop. More a Belgian Scotch than an actual bière de garde. IslandHaole (1274) - 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. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2004
(Bottled) Clear, dark reddish color with a very small head. Sweetish, sugary-malty aroma. Sweet, syrupy, slightly nutty flavor. Medium-bodied, very light palate (especially considering the color and style). Low carbonation. Another one in the Ch’ti series with exactly the same basic aroma and flavor. Still no yeast and nowhere near the Belgian counterparts. KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2006
This brown belgian ale is syrupy and all malts like most of its counterparts in the north of France. It has a bit of a redeeming chocolate flavor, but no hops worth mentioning. The nose is all musky malts and alcohol. schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2007
25 cl bottle, ’bbe’ Oct 07. Dark chocolate brown, dark ruby red when held against the light. Small, beige lace. Modest nose of caramel and a whiff of burned malts. A sweetish touch of pralinés noisettes. The taste is much drier, with pronounced bitter notes - dark malts, bitter chocolate rather than hops. An earthy touch retronasally. Medium bodied.
