I found this hidden away in an underground supermarket in Milan. It calls itself a bière de tradition parisienne, which I'll take to mean a bière de garde. In any case, it pours a full reddish-mahogany color, with a head of very miniscule bubbles of yellow-tan. The head has decent retention and fades to a lace of thin bubbles on the surface. The smell is of sweet toffee, cherries, and carmel. Really heavy malt. The taste is surprisingly light for the look and smell of this. It would seem that much of the malt has been turned to alcohol, as this is a bit slippery on the tounge and has some boozy characteristics. More sweet dried fruit, some funny little flavors of yeast and malt almost like a Belgian dark ale. The most amazing thing about this is how incredibly light and drinkable it is for all its sweetness and maltiness. Very light on the hops, nearly no bitterness and only the faintest notes of lemon and light citrus. I'd get this again if I could find it. It's amazing what you'll find hiding on the shelves in Italy.

This beer is a rich, clear amber-brown color with a fantastic off-white head. The aroma has a pale malt and sour-cherries quality. These two smells dominate the aroma, but there's also bit of caramel and baking bread. The taste is full-on malt, with a pleasant sweetness. There's a lot of fruit and softness in this beer. It's almost light and smooth in texture, but the flavor is fairly substantial. There's almost no hop flavor, just a touch of hop bitterness that compliments a fruity finish. This is an interesting and quite enjoyable beer.

Red cherry wood color, light. Decent foam, beige in color, average persistence.
At the smell a resolute maltiness, lightly caramel, with creme brulée notes. A light fruitiness, too, hard to define.
At the taste again malty and fruity (white fruit, sweet, maybe on the tropical). Anyway, not bad.
Hints of ripe peaches, but there is something else.
In the aftertaste more fruity, more on the red now, almost raspberry?
Medium-light body.
Overall: not bad.
