(750ml bottle from Lueken’s). Pours dark brown, almost black with fluffy khaki head. Aroma is caramel, dark pit fruit, a touch of smoke, florals, yeast. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Smooth finish. Interesting scotch with some yeastiness. Decent.

dark brown / light black / deep red pour with a 1+ finger beige head - sticks around for a bit with a slim lacing > … the Saison yeast strain really shines through the nose with layers of banana, spices and bright citrus notes. medium to full body - smooth > with layers of dark fruits, chocolate, cherry, orange peel, banana and cloves. sweet malts back everything up with light tart apple notes lingering. spicy finish - semi-dry with notes of tart apple, bread, banana, orange and a light spicy bitterness.

dchmela (2681) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Reddish brown pour with thin off white head. Smoky, slightly sour caramel aroma. Sweet caramel, spice, sour malty taste. Not a favorite of mine.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft… Pours midnight black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, fruity and lightly spiced with a touch of banana. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Spicy, fruity, malty flavor with moderate roastiness. Excellent balance for a Scotch and/or Farmhouse style ale. Finishes sort of lifeless, mundane and flat as many American saisons seem to do. Overall, though? A winner!

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2011
750 @ ravenous pig Big caramel on the nose with hints of molasses and a spicy aroma. Pours dark amber brown. Sweet caramel upfront with a slight smokey flavor and a dry spicy finish. Perfect blend of the 2 styles.

750 mL bottle thanks to travlr and GT2. Dark brown pour with a smallish head. Nose holds banana, mango, and grape; quite fruity, not a balance of dark fruit and malt as the style would suggest. The flavor reads with more roast, chalk, earth, and lactic cream to mix with some fruity esters that are, honestly, quite undesirable. Low to medium carbonation. Poor effort from a good brewery.

edecambra (11) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
This is a funky one. Aroma is figs and peppery, yeasty spice. The body is a bit thinner than I would expect (more like Saison than Scotch ale). Plum and raisins mixed with lots of cloves on the palate.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle shared by Joey at Dr. Bill’s tasting. Pours with a hazed brown hue with a small off-white head. Aromas are malty, light caramel and spicy with a phenolic, clove and pepper yeast presence. Flavors are rich, malty, lightly smokey with a bit of a belgian yeast pepper and spicy note. Medium bubbles. Quite tasty.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Thanks Travlr! Black pour with an offwhite head. Pretty weird: Lactic sugars, banana, tropical esters, and roasty chalky cocoa nib. Seems to find the sweet stout style much better than scotch ale, but there you have it. Interesting, but I’m not convinced that it works here.

Bottle. Nearly black, medium brown head. Aroma of weak coffee grounds. Taste is silky chocolate and bitter coffee finish. Nice.
