OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, - JAN 7, 2006
Couleur brune, apparence trouble et brouillé. Bonne quantité de mousse beige pale rapidement diminuante. Arômes de levure, de composte, jus de pruneau, acidité. Saveurs non-propre d’infection, de vinaigre, de poullailler et de levure. Acidité prononcée en bouche, corps pleinement atténué…Très problématique. Bouteille Bier Circus, Janvier 2006.

Bottle, 07/15/2013. Here we go. Pours deep mahogany, medium fuzzy off-white head fades rather quickly, very thin lacing around the glass. Aroma is tart cherries, earthy must, light chocolate, yet dominated by vinegar, nail polish remover. Taste is a slightly more manageable with tart fruity vinegar, watery cola, earthy chartreuse-like spices, dry finish with light roast. Thin body. Well, not especially pleasant at this point, hopefully there are some better bottles out there.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Here it is, a review of Saison that is likely far past it’s prime but then again seems to have taken on a far different character through the funky yeast overtones... meaning that this brew is FAR different that what is was when first released. The nose is a combination of earthy vapours, touch of dark malt sweetness and "urine" driven funky twang. (think the gutters of New Orleans Marti Gras here)... The taste is more of the complex strangeness, twangy and acidic as all get out but then there is a a chalky/ashy black patent malt character that makes this quite interesting. Not that I would say this "new" flavor profile is for everyone, but I sort of digging it has it warms. There is a LONG earthy tone upon the finish that is fully Saison in nature. Not any longer for the meek, only lovers of the style need apply to the BBB Dark Babillard. One of the most challenging brews I have had in while.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Richmond Gathering. Capped and corked 750, courtesy of The_Beer_God. Clear brown with a beige head. Sweet nose with big funk! Funky cheese, nuts, roasty malt - wow! Really interesting. Becomes more sour as it warms, and a woodiness emerges. Flavor adds a medicinal note, but somehow it works really well with this brew. Excellent!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God as part of the 6th Richmond Gathering. Clear deep copper color. Aroma of dark roasted malts,coffee, and almost cheesy yeast esters. Complicated flavor of roasted malts, oak, and earthy overtones. Light mouthfeel with a spicey earthy finish. very well carbonated. Thanks Beer God for sharing such a tasty and complex beer.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle - corked and capped. Dark brown body. Roasty, cheesy, nuttiness at first then yeast and "rotten funk". Taste is woody, funky, roasted malts, overripe fruit, herbal/medicinal notes/bitterness. Body is bubbly with some dry spots. Medium overall feel. Ends with more funky yeast, roasty notes, wood and cheese. After everyone got their share, the bottom, laced with sediment, was shaken and poured into my glass. With the sediment mixed it poured the color of chocolate milk, almost. Seemed much sweeter in the aroma as well. More carob bean and cocoa or chocolate. Taste seemed a touch sweeter as well. Almost a totally different beer!

Kinz (3274) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God as part of the 6th Richmond Gathering. Deep amber, clear, nice head. Nutty, earthy tartness in the aroma. Earth, roast, nuts, some woodiness but not oak. Very, very complex to say the least. There is a heck of a lot going on here.

Complex aroma, woods, wet grass, slight chocolate. Nice brown body, malty, sweet taste with some grass and light peat. Smooth ending with a hint of smoke.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2008
Bottle shared by The_Beer_God. Thanks! Cloudy chocolate brown color with a medium sized head that dissipates quickly. Sour funky aroma with notes of chocolate covered cherries, bourbon and nuts. Sour taste full of funk and some chocolate and nuttiness. Effervescence present but soft. This is very nice.
