Bottle shared in Belgium - picked up at a Carrefour. Pours clear amber with a big, billowing yellowy off-white head. The nose holds lots of bready malts, caramel and toasted sugars. Medium sweet flavor with sugary, lightly toasted malts, hints of cereal and caramel; but thankfully the sweetness is never excessive. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Lightly dried caramel in the finish with further toasty, rich bread. A very nice biere de garde. Pretty well balanced and drinkable. Skinnyviking (9728) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014

light metallic notes at first. Sweetish taste with some raisins, mudcake and dough. A bit one-sided

75 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 03/2010 olio (10591) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Aroma has malty notes typical to old beers. Also raisins and hints of cardboard. Flavour is rather malty with some metallic savor, some raisins and hints of metal. Quite well preserved, even though the taste is a bit short.
75 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 03/2010
Pours clear mahogany color with a small head, a bit lively. Aroma has quite a lot of ripe fruits, caramel malts, some mild spices and some yeast. Flavor is a bit watery, spices, caramel malts and ripe fruits, plums and raisins on the front, some distant berries also. Probably one of the best Biere de Gardes I’ve tasted, maybe they age well..
