A black rye saison that combines a roasted/smoky malt character in balance with a pepper spice from the yeast. Finishes dry with a refreshing level of carbonation.

Rando7 (778) - Iowa, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle pours very dark brown with brief beige head. Nice spiced aroma with slight funk. Complex taste of roast, malts, wood, spices, dark fruits and pepper. Palate a bit thin with moderate carbonation. Finish slight roast, yeast and pepper. Alcohol not apparent.

Lots going on but it doesn’t come together that well.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle from Redmonds, Dublin. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a fading tan head. Nose was caramel malt, spices and dark fruit. Flavour was rather sweet with some earthy malt and yeast notes, and lacked any real definition or balance. Underwhelming and a bit of a failed experiment this one.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, 16.06.11 Oxon consumed at Haro campsite outside Frank (camper), La Rioja, Spain 29.06.11 listening to Richard & Linda Thompson & eating Squid Marvellous Pours dark brown with a light beige head, bit malty (don’t get the smokiness) with plenty of dark brown heavy sugars, a little bit of farmhouse character but to be honest I tend to get mostly dark sugars. Nice in the mouth but I think a bit too sweet for a saison, touch of earthiness maybe but to be honest could be ruined by the Crianza that I’m also getting stuck into. Nice beer.

emacgee (4613) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Clean dark copper with one finger of tan head. Lots of Belgian yeast in the nose, raw fruity character and kind of funky/off. Same in the favor, yeasty with some grainy notes. Dry palate and well carbonated.

Sammer (1118) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2011
A little bit of everything in this one. Burnt wood, coffee, grass and funk. A bit of sour cherries thrown in. All over the map but decent.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Nice lively brown type ale. Dark brown pour with a small head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is a little smoky. The only pepper I get is in the description.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2011
12oz bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Pours like most black saisons, but there’s a really earthy dry taste, some mineral, some rye, only a hint of spice. Pepper and raw yeast in the nose. A bit underdeveloped overall, and therefore just okay, but would like to see what age does.

TURDFERGUSON (4050) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle, shared by emacgee. Yeasty, light pepper, light roast, dark fruits- prune and date in particular, a little spicy from the pepper. Overall, pretty forgettable.
