Dark orange and light brown appearance, I guess that is called amber, but this was darker, like say, maybe auburn. 1/4" off white head. Aroma was specialty, thick, dark bread. Reminded me of those bad fruitcakes that your family would bring to the holidays and shit.

Carbonation was lower than I hoped, so much spice rack overload. Maybe it was the yeast contribution just being so damn loaded, overly complex. Biere de garde is just not my thing, make sure you put that into your understanding here. I can only rate to style so hard when I hate the beer itself. I don't hate this, but you get my gist.

On-tap at Russian River Brewing Company, Santa Rosa, CA

A: The beer is hazy dark amber in color (dark reddish brown when viewed from afar) and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of grainy and caramel malts.
T: The taste has flavors of earthy yeast from start to finish along with a moderately strong malt backbone of grain. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather malty for the style but has nice aromas and flavors of earthy yeast.

Serving type: on-tap
