PhillyCraft (3391) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. pours plum black with huge and I mean huge fan head, full rings of lace. Smell is plums, candy sugar, saison yeast, and coriander. Flavor is most of the same. Pretty sticky and sweet, not into these kinds of saisons.

brnandersen (2011) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2014
Sample from 33 cl. bottle. Black with an amber tint. Big, creamy lightly tanned head. Roasted aroma with spices, light barnyard, brown cookies, citrus and fruits. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Dry, roasted finish with yeasts and fruits. My first dark Saison - so far I enjoy it.

Desverger (2266) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Sample from Bottle - black pour with thin beige head. Aroma and taste is a mix of subtle roasted notes, with some barnyard fruity undertones, very different brew, like.

Patjeadam (64) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
First smell is some nice roasted malts, a little chocolate and a bit boozy plums, first sip dives into the sour you expect from a saison, then it becomes a dance between the malts, chocolate sour and the hops, it becomes more complex and the plums return. I would classify this as a clean black ipa meeting a saison, and stays remarkably drinkable. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

anders37 (17215) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a longlasting off-white head. Has a weak roasted malty spicy yeasty aroma. Fruity malty spicy yeasty caramel flavor with weak bitter hints. Has a fruity malty spicy yeasty caramel finish.

erickok (3745) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 1, 2014
Black bodied and medium head. Roasted malts, toasty side, dark sugar, modern hops. It’s like a modern Belgian dark ale. Creamy yeast. Unique beer, although a bit too highly carbonated. (75cl bottle gifted by Menno and John, many thanks! And shared with Flavia and Alba)

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 25, 2014
0,75 l bottle, Csakajósör, Budapest.
Poured deep black with an unbelievable superb beige, stable creamy head. Lactic acid, light smoke in the moderated aroma. Balanced tartness of lactic acid, smooth smokiness, light roasted character, creamy mouthfeel, well hidden alcohol. Nice!

aenima (273) - Askim, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
Aroma of saison citrus like aromas and chopcolate. The taste is very similar. Feels like a blend of super saison and imperial porter. A little too one plain and simple. Would have appreciated more complexity.

Maakun (757) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with enormous beige head, hard to pour. Smoked meat, nice tropical fruits, some chocolate and spices with a dry herbal finish. Strong carbonation with nice full creamy feel. Not bad, but I'm left wondering how it would be without the slightly overpowering smokiness.

allmyvinyl (3986) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of light smoke, pepper, roasted malt. Taste is subtly smoky, roasted bitterness. Decent.
