3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CBC. Easily my favorite DdC beer from the fest. Higher carbonation on near black srm. Sheets of lacing. Fruity ester nose with mild funk, Biere de Garde heavy malt and maple waffle richness. Hints of celery (?). Taste is big dark chocolate, roast, coffee, grapefruit peel, strawberry juice, creamy latte. Lots of fun playoffs. Spicy finish. Aerated palate. Certainly dark saison comes to mind and this is a knock out.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Dark black with a small beige head, small amount of lacing. Aroma is quite fruity - grape, raisin, plum. Medium bodied, some hoppy bitterness on the finish. Taste is grape skins, sherry, fig. Interesting but not compelling.
