VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
750 ml bottle, 2013 Edition (had in late Summer 2015). Poutd a clearish ruby reddish dark brown to black with a short lived beige head. Aroma is red berries, roast, oldish, woody. Flavor is dark berry (blackberry, blueberry, black grapes), coffee and roast. Finish is dark chocolate, burnt, dusty and oldish. Lingering wood and dark fruits. Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel and weak to average carbonation.

I did not expect such a dark beer upon pouring. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste after seeing just how dark it is, because I feared it would be drowned in a coffee taste or something more bitter more typically associated with beers this dark, but it wasn’t like that. The coffee notes were subtle, and worked nicely. Nothing really stood out beyond that, and it wasn’t quite as smooth as I like, but it is a good beer. Is it worth the hefty price tag (something like $20 for a 750ml bottle)? No, I don’t think it is.

Was hoping for a golden ale for some reason. Charred flavor, not much Belgian yeast flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is life a porter with roasted malt and soapy hops. The appearance is like a porter. The palate is average. Overall a nice find but not a farmhouse.

A great combo of porter and a farm house. Some nuts, toast, cocoa powder and grain. Slight funk at the end with a smooth texture ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (2075) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2015
2012 bottle from BrookFalls Discount. 6/13/12 bottle date. Note on the bottle says can age up to 5 years. Shrug? Chocolate brown foamy pour with a tan head leading nice lacing. Aroma has chocolate, caramel and tangy raisins. Later down the glass some herbs, some molasses and a bit of olive show through. Taste is of tangy caramel, light cocoa, some herbs, maybe mushroom (came and went). Medium bodied and effervescent. Finishes tangy and somewhat sweet. No idea what style they were going for, but certainly a different type tasting brew. Possibly a touch infected. And certainly 3 years old. 12.7

Rune (9996) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2015
355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Lacing rings from an opaque mahogany coloured body. Tan-coloured head that stayed well. Moderate smell of earthy, brown and black malts, hints of molasses. Rather comprehensive taste of prunes, ash, molasses, and sweet liquorice offset by dark spices. Prolonged finish. Medium bodied. Pretty nice (Tromsø 17.09.2015).

thedm (5281) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 13, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy auburn colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium mild malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of mild rye mild spice dark malt and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

Bottle at home. Dark black body with thin, tan head. Nose is smoky, malty, spicy. Taste is malty, caramel, dark chocolate, plums and fruity. Finished drier, again with chocolate kicking in. Not bad at all.
