presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Looks like a stout; black beer with a brown head. Chocolate malt aroma with some backing spice peaking out from the dark curtain. Flavour is indeed dark with a soapy plastic quality. Spice does seem to dance on the dark malt which redeems an odd experiment.

GothGargoyle (939) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Dark cola black with a large beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is malt, molasses, cocoa, hint of citrus, and grass. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, slightly grassy finish with a very subtle bitterness.  Taste is molasses, chocolate pudding, hint of pepper and spice. Interesting.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2012 Tap @ Parkway, bomber from Pint Defiance. Black pour with a short beige head leaving heavy lace. Nose is malty, smoky and roasty. Medium body with light carbonation. Toffee, charcoal, chocolate, ham, salty licorice and a trace of barnyard funk underneath it all, but not enough to make it a saison. Finish is dry and charcoal-ish, with some soy (?oxidation). Very different, as their beers can be IME, but still enjoyable if not quite to style.

RumRunner101 (675) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Aroma of cocoa, black licorice, dark fruits. Flavours of dark chocolate, dark fruits - quite roasted. The finish is some spice and licorice. Nicely rounded with good flavours.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Another of this odd new dark saison style. Black-brown, light brown head. Sweet yeasty nose, interesting. Light fruity body before bigger malt, chocolate and coffee finish. interesting mashup, pretty tasty and interesting.

CapFlu (4361) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
(22oz bottle) Purchased at Cook Street. Pouts a mild tan head atop a black body. Nose is covered with coffee notes, medicinal and slight fig. Don't know about the 'Saison' description as this is über flavorful and covers the yeast. Good malt base but lacks depth. I still prefer my local Lighthouse Belgian Black to this. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

Gerbeer (1493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of dry dark chocolate and malts. Similar stronger flavor with sweet sharp fruity notes. Very dry finish. Very nice.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Draught. Dark brown/black with foamy white head. Spicy aroma. Malt roast in the spicy flavour. This is a dark saison, and probably should be a new type of bier. Spice finish with a bit of roast.
