Somehow an easy drinker while also being sort of farmhouse, only 5.3% abv and dark! Foam is dark and think. Finish is there but not overly complex. Good. Would drink again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Bottle [12oz]. As ’Green Flash Friendship Brew’. Pours a very dark brown with a large lasting fluffy tan head. Lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and spices first, and its good, along with Belgian yeast, perfumy notes, dark fruit and more. Flavour of spices and Belgian yeast, a bit funky, along with a good amount of hops, malt, cocoa, some herbs and coffee. Medium bodied. This shit rocks, I can’t even imagine why some of these ratings are so low. I love it.

500 ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black. Creamy light beige head that clings to the glass. Spicy herbal aroma with nutty roasted malts. Velvety texture. Complex spicy flavours. Cardamon, cinnamon and cloves. Belgian yeast. I like the texture, but the spices get a little deafening after a while.
