3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle at home iRate: Deep dark chestnut brown with decently creamy tan head. Rich, wide ranging malt aroma with an earthy tea lead backing. Some dark brown sugar, almost molasses, provides bright sweetness. Some nice toffee notes give some impression of roast. Very nice but overall sweet aroma. Luckily the flavor is much less sweet. There is still sweetness from the malt but a much milder sugar tone. In fact it is quite dry considering the sweetness on the nose. CO2 is quite sharp on just the tip of the tongue... But strangely soft everywhere else. Dark caramel mixed with malt and some dried fig shows up to the party and are the last ones standing at the end.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl with impressive old school cork. Very dark for a biere de garde, with white head. Although the beer is dated to 2011, it tastes like an old beer. But it is a very good one, hugely better than Jenlain or Theillier, the best of this style I’ve yet tried.

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...

Versée dans le verre elle présente une couleur ambré foncé, légèrement troublé. Sa mousse est équilibrée, colorée, bien persistante. En nez et en bouche c’est le malt qui domine, avec des notes de caramel et de levure.
