look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: 375ml corked, capped, and foiled. Raised imprint of BL on the lower neck of the bottle. Stamp: L C29JFA 9844.
Appearance: Very slightly hazy golden amber color. Small tan head forms quickly and dissipates just as quickly.
Aroma: Caramel sweetness with a tangy acidic quality and notes of barnyard funk.
Taste: Sweet and sour at the same time. Very thick bodied beer with an overpowering sweetness upfront and dries out with a mouth puckering tartness mid-taste , with the Belgian dark candi sugar sweetness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied at first but finished with a thin dryness in the end.
Notes: I've had other faro before and it just isn't the same when it's in the bottle. The sweetness is just a little too strong and cloying and for the mouthfeel is too heavy than having one made fresh at the bar in Belgium. I do like that it is in a 375ml, because all that Belgian candi sugar is too much to drink much more than that.

3.44/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Light copper color with practically no head.
Strong predominant aroma of horse blanket, sulfur and sweat.
Much sweeter flavor and less sour than I expected given its bold aroma. Tart and very sweet flavor with notes of cherries, champagne vinous, apple vinegar and lots of candied sugar. Dry aftertaste with hints of leather.
Medium body with a medium carbonation and an acid feeling.
Interesting that given the big sour aroma I was expecting some heavy tartness, but it is reasonably friendly, with sugar superseding its sourness. Actually, it is a bit too sweet for my taste with a relatively lower complexity. But it was worth it to try this.
