3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a thick, beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some roasted malts, and a hint of hops. A little light on the palate, but a nice roasted flavor that’s rare for this style of beer. A pretty interesting beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first reaction was, "What the hell, I thought this was a saison." Pours dark brown with a dense creamy light brown head that seems to last forever while continuously building in my New Belgium globe glass. Aroma is hard to find in all that foam but I do get light spice, toasty malts, after it fades I get more tobacco and ripe dark fruits. The taste is excellent crisp and yet insanely rich and dense feeling in the mouth from the creamy carbonation. Very nice beer.
