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.

750ml bottle thanks to adnielson. Cheers, Aaron! Pours a murky brown with an off-white head. Nose is wood, overripe fruit, slight dark fruit, & booze. Flavor is similar with booze, dark fruit, slight cocoa, and whiskey. Full in body and a bit hot.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Sweet malt smell, slight saltwater taffy flavor. Cloudy deep brown to amber color. Flavor if prosciutto ham, or other salted and cured meats. Pretty good, and quite intriguing, but not the smoothest drink Iíve had.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a clear deep reddish brown with a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains and fruit with a bit of backing funk and barrel. Flavor starts with a hint of bourbon with dark grains and bread with a hint of funk.

My first official rating on RateBeer comes from one of my favorite newer breweries, Funkwerks! Pours a hazy brown. Spicy, bourbon, yeasty. Interesting Belgian beer.
