MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Burnt malt flavors are salvaged by citrusy thyme allusions, chicory-like roastiness and a lush mouthfeel for quite the quizzical Dark Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam surfs the blackness.
-The body is not as dry as I like my Saisons, but then again the finish is not that sweet.
-The creamy body is easily the beerís best feature. But those burnt notes detract from the enjoyment after every sip.
-The roasted malt bitterness is met by more citrusy spiciness.

On tap at Funky Buddha.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2013
On tap at Redlight Redlight, jet black with a bit of spiderweb lacing, extemely malty and rich, sweet chocolate aroma with a little bit of spice on the back end. Not too bad.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft at Mermaid Juice. Black pour with a frothy tan head. This is a bit spicy with light roasty chocolaty notes, with clove, vanilla, toffee, and citrus. The body is light and a touch thin. Dry and a bit roasty in the finish. Iím not a huge fan of the dark saison but I do like the drinkability with this. Pretty solid beer.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Enjoyed at the CC Tasting Room. Drinkable on a warm day, but undercarbonated and a little sourness that detracted from the spice. Not a normal saison.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
A deep dark saison with a thin lacing brown head. In aroma, a nice peated malt with dark fruits and soy sauce. In mouth, a nice smooth peaty and lightly salty malt with smooth dark fruits, fusel alcohol, interesting. On tap at brewery, Dec. 9 2012.

very strange combination of styles. both the saison and "dry stout" character come through, but i.m.o. do not compliment each other at all.
