This entry is for the bottled version of Saison Noire (which contained brettanomyces). Ratings for the brewpub/draft version should go HERE

This Belgian-inspired dark saison has a rich, deep amber color and a wonderfully complex caramelized maltiness complimented by the funky, fruity and earthy character of our house saison yeast. Decadent but dry with some lingering funk and fruit.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of gn0sis. Pours a hazy warm amber with a frothy and lacing off-white head. The nose is spicy, somewhat tart yet with an underlying syrupy sweetness. Medium body, dried dark fruit - some overripeness too - slightly soapy. I’m not sure how much Brett I pick up though. Vague underlying tartness. Very subdued bitterness. 180311

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a creamy off-white, maybe khaki, colored head. S: Touch of chocolate malt and sweetness. Definitely fruity with a mild to moderate roast and hints of oak. Fairly yeast with some peppery notes, chalk, and earthiness. T: Quite a bit more dry than I was expecting. Chocolate malts, earthy funk, wet oak, mild roast, and a definite chalkiness. A mild fruitiness (specifically raisins). Just a little bit bready. M: Medium in body with carbonation on the high end of medium. O: Really interesting and complex. The chocolatey notes were a little unexpected, but they worked out.
