Mora2000 (5666) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate, toasted malt and nut notes. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of very dry chocolate as well as some nuttyness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

pdx76 (618) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle - pours out pitch black with tan head. Nose of hot chocolate, coffee, and malt. Smooth and thick mouthfeel. Taste of chocolate, sweet malt, cherry, and slight hint of smokiness. Easy drinking though it does have somewhat of a boozy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brystmar (1238) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Brown body with tan head and stubborn lace. Roasty malts, hearty chocolate and toffee backbone. How is this a saison again? More of a porter / strong ale blend. I dig it.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium to dark brown, fine dark tan bubbles. Nose of chocolate malt, fairly rich, pretty spicy, roasty. Taste is roasty, chocolate malt, dark fruit, fairly rich, semi-sweet chocolate, nice finish and long lasting on the palate.

Sammy (8571) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Imperial black saison, enjoyed at Mondiale 2013. Something weird. Getting chocolate, sage,carrot, dill, yeast. Very unique and weird. A little funky, very weird.
