Pour chocolate with a brown foamy head. Nice yeasty saison aroma with notes of banana meet with chocolate and light roast malty notes. Some sweet sugar and has a hint of prune or dark fruit. On the palate it is creamy textured, with yeasty profile and finishes a hot. Flavours of yeast, banana and chocolate make this a wonderful brew. Really good!

Keg at Brewdog. Black with tan head. Strange but pleasant aroma, blackcurrant, spices and flowers. Taste is similar with some licorice and dark fruits. Thick and smooth, body of an imperial stout. Quite an odd brew but very nice.

Bottle - Dark malts, yeast, herbs and hints of anise. Jet black with a rich brown head that after half an hour is still going strong. Taste is very different with a ton of booze and hops, sweet yeast and dark roast malts. Finish is hoppy and dark roast.

Pear and citrus aroma. Black in color with a thick light brown head. Interesting combo of dark malts, chocolate and a bit of citrus zing in the background. A little spicy at the back of the throat. Complex and tasty.

Bottle at home- 9 Nov 2013. Pours dark with a thin creamy head. Nose is a beguiling mix of saison yeast and coffee. Taste adds a little more fruit into the mix. Bit of an odd one but enjoyed it once I go into it.
