Alengrin (5116) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Like many of these old, brown table beers, the term "faro" is used merely to indicate it is sweetened and coloured, but has nothing to do with the equally old-fashioned faro lambics in and around Brussels. This one is a classic in its style, with a very dark brown colour, clear, light maltiness and sweetened with saccharine; bit metallic with the expected thin mouthfeel, sweet and simple but nothing wrong with it in view of its style.

Martinus (4588) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
Clear caramel colour, diminishing white head. Caramel aroma, fresh fart. Sweet flavour, caramel. Sweet finish. Mwa.

Benzai (15141) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Ansjelaah and Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque very dark brown to black color, small beige head. Not a lot of aroma. Taste sweetish, sugary. Low to average body and carbonation.

DutchDrebus (5836) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle @ joes shared by benzai. Brown colour, no head. Smells farty, manure, sulfur, horrible. Tastes sweet, malty, unfermented, sugary. Smell is way worse though. Thin body, soft carbo.

rok1024 (1273) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 21, 2013
Dark brown, almost black appearance, low head. Malty and sugary aroma, very sweet taste. Watery but refreshing and good for a low alcohol beer.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2013
Neutral-slicher und leicht malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist wssrig-neutral, leicht malzig. Der Hauptteil ist mittelschwach, wssrig-neutral & leicht von malzigen Sstoffaromen geprgt, die zum Nachgeschmack hin deutlicher werden. Kaum Herbe wahrnehmbar. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine mild-malzige und sstoffgetrnkte Note. --> nettes, leicht malziges Tafelbier, aber viel zu Sstofflastig! 8/12/4/7

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2010
(Bottled, BBE 02-04-10) Very dark ruby brown with a tiny, fading head. I got no aroma at all, must be the first time ever when rating a beer. Sweet flavor of something malt-like, maybe the remainders of a wort vessel rinsing liquids. Light body, sugary palate, low carbonation. A "delicate tafelbier". 6113

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours out very dark brown, almost black beer. Beige-brown head. Looked pretty good for me. Aromas of dark fruits, but very hard to smell a thing. Taste... cola with a bit of fruit, cherish? Doesnt really taste as a beer... It looked good, almost great when poured out, but what a disappointment when tasted it.
