aleigator (496) - GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a black color, with mohagony, ember hints at the edge, topped by a big, fluffy, beige head. Smells of spicy, earth entangled malts, amped up by bakers chocolate and glazed malts. Got a skunky, sour yeast note, creating a unique profile, also due to salty smoke. Offers a grassy hop note, settling on top of the malt foundation, joined by a subtle tropic fruit addition. Has a lower carbonation, with a medium body, while a certain bubble impact acts as a convincing counterpart to the malt sweetness, by providing a coppery note. Tastes of milk chocolate and glazed toffee, accompanied by wooden coffee. This sets the balance, topped off by leafy hops, caramel and a peppery spice bite. Finishes with more coffee, while also providing more caramel, tied together by the hot, short spice bite. Exhibits a very malty version of a saison, which does come well together though, with all flavors blending very supportive into each other, still reminding me more of a stout than anything else.

Idiosynkrasie (5020) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear, dark brown colour, ruby red glimmer, with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Citrusy hoppy, fruity aroma, notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, tangerine, dark malty background with a chocolately touch, some roast, cautious hints of smoke. Taste delivers similar flavours, opening a new field between Saison and Black IPA. Nice.

Zlotta (346) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
0,33 l bottle from P&M Getränke, bottled on 10/2/2014. Clear, very dark ruby with a massive, foamy, stable, tan head. Intense aroma of passion fruit, mango, grapefruit and lemon, supported by a subtle smoky note of smoked ham and ash, with a bit of dark chocolate as well. Intense, quite bitter taste of passion fruit, grapefruit and mango, followed by smoked ham and ash as well as some dark chocolate. Long, rather bitter and peppery finish with lots of grapefruit as well as dark chocolate. Medium to full body, very foamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very interesting and unusual beer that tries perhaps a bit too much. Very complex and full of flavour but a bit harsh in the end. Still nicely balanced and tasty.

DwarfeD (1673) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a beige head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Medium sweet- and bitterness with some sour tones in its initial taste. Roasted malts, caramel, hops, chocolate, yeast, coffee and spices. Somehow this is not working out for me, it’s an ok brew. But I’ve expected more.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - APR 22, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Max & Stas. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, nice smokiness, a bit of sausages, roast, and spicy hint. Sweet roasty flavor, kinda smoky, with some chocolate, and a spicy note towards the dry finish. Medium-bodied. Nice stuff, but not a Saison.
