Vaiz (3617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour, huge tan head. Aroma is quite full of licorice, spicy, some alcohol, roasted malts, cough candy and some yeast. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy and with a huge amount of carbonation. Slightly out of balance, but interesting and unique.

teorn88 (3396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle shared at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. Dark beer, roasty and grainy, has more stout quality than saison. Overall, not bad nonetheless

minutemat (1943) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
75cl bottle shared with Mr Farnfield @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep dark brown with tan head. Aroma is smoky, taste is rather bizarre, blending an initial smoky bacon hit with juicy lemon citrus and a big roasted malt influence. Complex, big bodied and different, although I can’t detect much in the way of Saison-like characteristics.

jackafholmes (482) - - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Dark red ale with big tan head. Aroma is smoky rich dark malts with roasted coffee and earthy liquorice. Taste is mildly sour and burnt bitterness on the finish. Very prickly with a surprisingly thin body.

skortila (4665) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2014
Bottled. 65cl almost full bottle sample. The aroma has citric fruitiness, bit earthy yeast tones, some toffee, Hazy, dark brown-black coloured beer with a medium, off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has some toffee, citrus, earthiness. Medium bodied, easy drinker. Good one.

PhillyCraft (3570) - 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 (2238) - 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.
