Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Very light spice. Slight dark malt vibe. Little toffee - treacle and bruised fruit. Fairly dry finish. Tasty but not seducing me.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a foamy/creamy dark tan head. Aroma of earthy chocolate. Med body more or less. Flavor is earthy chocolate. A chocolate saison? It sort of fits. It’s dry, dark, tasty. Definitely close to the edge.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bottleworks, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of yeast, chocolate malt, light herbal notes and candied sugar. Flavour is quite sweet for a black saison, with bittersweet chocolate, candied sugar and loads of yeast. Very highly carbonated and becomes very sweet the more I drink. Decent.
