3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Pours black with a lively rocky brown head. Aroma has Brett up front, light pineapple, hint of coffee and licorice in the background. Taste is more malty up front, chocolate and licorice then Brett comes through with a slighty tart finish. Kind of all over the place but interesting and tasty

Bottle @ home, courtesy of Papsø. Thanks! Pours a hazy brown appearance with a huge foamy brown head. Spicy chocolate roasty malty, berry, funky, light coffee aroma. Tangy rich dark chocolate, quite piney hoppy, herbal, roasty flavor with a bitter piney finish. It doesn’t blow my mind but I really enjoy it.

Bottle. Yeast, scorched malt, and brown sugar nose. Black, with beautiful two-finger dark tan head. Blended chocolate and prunes (very light) / smooth rich chocolate emerges in mid palate / finish of light raisins and some good bitterness. Dark and chewy. Wonderful stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Roast malts, wine barrel and some vinegar. Brown like mud with a thin brown head. Dark roast malts, chocolate and a hit of sourness. A sour stout that works.

On tap at CBC2012. Deep black in the glass, small head. Extrem fruity-berry aroma. Starts fruity-sweet, extrem like berries. More and more malty, stouty, earthy with chocolate hints. Warming finish. Nice!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a thick, huge & billowing, dark tan head. Very carbonated. Nose shows light hay and that typical saison yeast note - almost champagne like. Light funk comes through as well as cocoa powder and cacao nibs. Some citric hops in there too. Taste is superbly balanced compared to what I was expecting. Loads of layers which all work well. The yeast is showcased sensationally and slowly turns into roasted malts and milk chocolate. Light sweetness with heavy and lengthy bitterness shines. Light funk throughout - works very well but it is very subtle. Fantastic beer
