- Comments: This beer appeals to me on so many levels. It came to me as a surprise gift from a fellow redditor. Thanks r/intern4tional ! Its a Dark Belgian which is my favorite style currently, and its produced on a "brewfarm" where they produce their own hops and grain which they use exclusively in the process making it unique at every step. It pours smoothly with a nose of floral undertones and a nutty almost date like scent. The average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubbles in the head are a light almond color and leave wet lacing in the glass as they settle down the sides. The taste is immediately warming, and noticeably rich in flavor. It has a woody taste from the barrel aging and it is sweet but not at all cloying. The yeast is barely noticeable but present and delicious. The finish is clean and very smooth.
