Distinguished by black wax on the 375 ml bottle. A dark saison that was barrel aged in Jim Beam whiskey barrels which once held Weyerbacher Insanity and half was aged in local Chadds Ford Winery red wine barrels with bacteria.

reggiedunlop (3414) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Large free sample poured from a bottle @ Station Taproom...Pours black with ruby hues and a medium tan head...excellent lacing and retention. Aroma has excellent tart dark fruits...port and slight soury cherry...with nice roastiness and mild funk. Flavor has nice subtle dark chocolate, mild oaky/whiskey vanilla...mildly acidic with dark fruits...a bit of a chocolate cherry candy note with nice oakiness and red wine creeping in...amazing how the barrel characteristics were captured perfectly. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a fabulous chocolate/winey/oaky finish that lingers into roastiness. One of the best beers Ive ever had.

Hair6a11 (1426) - Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle; Pour is cola brown, with amber highlights in this glass - the khaki head is very modest here - light spotting present. Appearance would be the biggest flaw of this brew - The nose is rich dark fruit , vinous, earthen barrel - with an off note as well. The flavor profile is sublime - It’s always interesting to see the Euro rates on american brews with wild notes - well. it always goes the same way (humorously negative) . The mouth feel is velvet smooth - the blend from vinous to earthen cocoa and ash is almost as perfect as it could be - and that’s the element of this brew that sticks out as I progress through this bottle. Slight vanilla, roasty malts, acetic, cherry notes, and lemon tart - damn. The concept of dark saisons is as unappealing as "black" ipas. This works for me - as well as any I’ve had thus far
