look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into wine goblet, three finger beige head, and dark brown to red hue in the body. Almost zero carbonation, the mouthfeel is smooth and thick. Light brown lacing covers the walls of the glass well.

Smells of peppers and coriander

Taste: Peppers, chocolate, bananas, and Belgian yeast at the finish.

Overall, I believe I'd have this again. There are three beers left in the pack- I shan't be buying this again though. This isn't for me.

It's a pretty good Belgian style farmhouse ale. It has a VERY heavy mouthfeel, which if you like is great, but if you don't it's not. This isn't exactly a refreshing beer, but it has a very nice taste and I do appreciate what's going on with it. I would not be able to drink more than one in a sitting because it feels so heavy.

A: I am surprised to see the blackness of this drink. Expected a golden farmhouse! Almost no light through and a bubbly dissipating head.

S: Not much at all here. If anything some straw and malt.

T: Very interesting. Smoke, some chocolate flavors, it's got a tartness to it that is in the background. Also some dark fruit, straw, funk, and slight bitterness.

M: Creamy as stated. Got a dry finish with the slightest bite of carbonation.

O: A pleasant surprise. This is unique and great for the style. It reminds me of a black lager with a funkiness to it. Good job Goose Island.
