Ratman197 (9687) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown nearly black with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, earthiness and spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, earthiness, light licorice and light spice with a smooth dry lingering roasty spiced finish. I was told this was a Black Saison.

12oz Bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Thanks Dagan. Super dark brown color with a small nice dark beige head. Roasty nose, with grassy hops, some dark chocolate and ash. Espresso flavors, slight tart, medium bitterness and burnt toast. Medium-full body, pretty dry, feels more like a stout and yet good.

ansermadide (1519) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
This 2012 AHA National Homebrewers Conference Commemorative Beer has a dark brown color with a fine, medium-brown head. It has a potent, almost sour hop aroma with a slight sweetness reminiscent of a robust porter. It has a slight chocolate flavor thatís a little like cardboard and cocoa powder. Thereís a slight dryness in the finish that adds a twist to a thin, almost alcohol-like finish. This is robust, full, and strong on the palate, yet still maintains a thin overall experience. Hmm... it kinda smells like paint.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Daganís place. Thanks Noam. Pours black, opaque, off-white film. Pepper and some coffee in the nose, ash, burnt, hot pepper taste. Sleek texture, hardly any carbonation, hot finish.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Daganís place. Thanks Dagan. Very dark brown with a beige head. Roasty aroma of chocolate, coffee, light fruity notes and some spiciness. Flavor starts sweetish and continues drier with coffee, a bit of fruits and a spicy-roasty finish. Medium-bodied.

(375ml bottle) Courtesy of Blomster. Thin, dark ... Weíre thinking itís a black IPA or Baltic? Fairly slight. Not bad.
