Our second collaboration with Brasserie St-Feuillien, Friendship Brew, is a Black Saison that blends European and American hops, Belgian yeast and a cache of secret spices. The aroma and flavors are enticing, with delicate fruitiness, subtle spice and rounded roast malt characteristics. Bottle conditioning provides lively carbonation and rich beer foam for a luscious body and a lean, dry finish.

22oz bottle. Dark brown with a big, foamy, tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast esters, anise and chocolate. Flavor is anise, dry cocoa, spicy/zesty yeast with well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a long, dry finish. Different beer, like a dry, spicy stout/saison.

BelgianBeerGal (3716) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle at Total Wine Tucson. Crazy dark pour almost reminiscent of a dry stout. Sweet and spicy aroma. Big bold flavor that starts with piney hops and finishes with some coffee. Nice and reminded me of a Fantome creation.

Tap. Near black with small head. Malty as a stout, but light mouthfeel. Mild funk. Delicious.

k0mpsa (2393) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle at tuulensuu, tampere. Almost black color, hint of red. Light brown head vanishes quickly. Quite weird aroma of hops, tobacco and licorice. Multiform taste of hops, roasted hops, carbonation, licorice, belgian-style sweetness and spices. Medium aftertaste, dry finish. With better body this would be awesome, now it’s nice.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
On draught at Max’s Tap House, Baltimore 4/12/2012. Opaque and dark brown with a tight, off-white head. Aroma of fruit cake, orange peel, ginger and floral hops. Full-bodied mouth feel with plenty more fruit, peppery hops and a dryish finish. Very good.

Good filling mouthfeel. Well roasted maltiness with spices, licorice, dark fruits, caramel and a pleasant tartness. Yum!

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Wow, didn’t expect such a dark monster. There’s a nice, low-key herbal aroma. But on the first sip, you’re overtaken with some big garden-born green vegetables and spice. Quite floral and earthy, dominated by sage (?). Easy-drinking body. (#4854, 12/9/2012)

Thisis12ptfont (1100) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Smoked maple syrup, oak, burnt wood and rose petals on the nose. Blackish auburn in color with a light foam on top. Smoked maple, brown sugar, and oats with other notes of burnt molasses, floral undertones and hibiscus. Very mellow and crisp with an advanced complexity. Overall, this is pretty tasteful with very unique flavors. Nice toasted and smoked characteristics. I’d give this a B- rating.
