3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dark black with a burgundy hue. Aroma is fruity but also possesses a peppery/soapy element. Flavour was like a dark peppery barnyard yeast. Pretty dry and medium body finish. Interesting and challenging combination, but not as good as their other stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours quite dark with a nice tanned head. Smells of yeast, fruity esters, brett and malts. Moderate sweet, nice touch of brett and a fruity character from the yeasts. Moderate bitter finish. A very nice saison; of this black kind i don’t know much, but i know i liked this one

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 355ml bottle on 24/3/2013. Pours close to balck with a medium head. Has a curious aroma which is dominated by licorice with a touch of spice. The flavour is curious as well, with bitter roasty notes, some sweet dark fruit, more licorice, and a lingering spicy finish. An unusual and quite interesting brew without quite hitting the bullseye.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a dense, creamy, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up a whole lot of juniper and spruce with toasted chocolate malts supporting.. bright and interesting. The flavor found slightly sour juiniper plus white pepper and cloves throughout.. black, roasty malts supported.. finished with a big spicy yeast impression and residual roast. Medium-bodied, dry, and kind of sour on the palate.. this was OK, but didn’t entirely work.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue and a small, creamy beige head. Odd aroma, licorice and white pepper, somewhat vperfumy too. Medium body, some roast, a little cardboard and a rather bitter finish. A strange hybrid - the idea behind this was probably better than the actual result. But a good looking beer it is.... 200313

Draft pour dark brown to black. Nose of ivory soap, lilac, and pepper. Tastes like sour pepper. Not sure if this was a bad sample or just not my kind of brew
