Had on draft at Lost Abbey on 4/3/14
A-Dark hazy copper with a thick off white head.
S-Aroma is pepper with caramel, plum and raisin.
T-Taste follows suit and adds some toffee and light vanilla notes. Medium alcohol presence.
M-Mouthfeel has a stickyness and moderate carbonation.
O-Overall a decent biere de garde from Lost Abbey nice balance of fruit and spice and yeast and malt.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a pint glass. Only 2013 is readable from the freshness stamp
A: Orange-ish brown with a two-finger head that slowly settles
S: Fig, caramel, candied orange peel, toast
T: Raisins, fig, caramel, toffee, baking spice
M: Full-bodied, a bit sweet, short finish though hides the 10% well
O: Apparently this is only the third Bière de Garde style I've had. I need to try more. This particular bottle is not a bad beer but I doubt I'll actively look for more. I didn't pick up any of the brett mentioned on the back label
