Pour out of 750 mL bottle, gushed a slight bit but was a slow gusher, even after a pour it kept gushing. Dark brownish black pour, nice fine bubbled tan head, laced well. Aroma brought notes of nice dark fruits, slight vanilla, toffee, bourbon notes, hints of earth, some yeasty notes with a slight roasted character, touch of red grape in there as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, yeast, some spice notes, hints of a touch of grain, toffee and molasses notes, hints of an earthy and slight roasted note, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy. Pretty nice stuff.

Pours a dark amber color with a khaki head. Sweet malt dominates the nose. Toffee and vanilla give the beer substantial sweetness, as do dark fruit aromas. A mild banana note, some oak, and a hint of yeast and spice. The flavor is full of dark fruit, toffee, caramel, and vanilla. There is a hint of alcohol, light spices, and some banana. Might be just a hint of dark chocolate. Not much of a saison/farmhouse beer as the label indicates, but quite good.

750 ml bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a dark murky brown color with a medium off-white. A great roast and oaky, some sour aromas. A rich flavorful brew that simply defies characterization; oak, light roast, dry, sweet. Very unusual.

750 thanks to Scott. Raisins. Figs. Slight bourbon. Big on the dark fruit flavor. A solid Dubbel or "Belgian Strong." Very tasty.

Poured a dark, murky, amber with a medium tan head. Smells of vanilla, figs, bourbon, prunes, and glue. Taste is very sweet, but somewhat balanced by the alcohol, with hints of vanilla and whiskey. Paired this with dark chocolate and it worked well. Kind of different for FW, but very interesting. Worth a try.
