Dark copper-coloured with a big foamy head. Earthy cellar aroma. Flavour starts sweet, but is countered by medium bitterness. Fruity with taste of plums? Well-carbonated, dry finish. joergen (28164) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2007

Bottle. Small white fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spar lacing. Clear amber color. Fruity, caramel, dusty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was sweet with a slightly dry and light bitter finish. JorisPPattyn (10004) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2006
Foxy-chestnut colour; smaller yellowish-creamy head. Heavily oxydized nose. Apparently no BBd, but beer seems to have been bottled March ’04. Hmmm. Nutty, buttery, cooking quality Madeira aromas. Sweet, malty, madeirised, very malty as in Kraftmalz; tastes as some artisanal or homemade cola drink. Bit watery MF, light bodied, but a background slickness, nearly cloying. All consistent with an ungraciously (sorry for the plagiarism, CC) aged. "Bière de Garde" means a beer fit for keeping. If a beer is near exhausted after 2 years, then I won’t call it fit for laying down. Sod it, I’ve berated people for calling every malt drink from Northern Gallia "BdG", but it would seem some brewers aren’t being any wiser. yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 30, 2007
