3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours ultra-dark brown with a superb foamy-fluffy head, great retention, sticky lacing, lots of bubbly activity.
Nose: black cardamom, burnt cedar, peppermint, caramel malts. (4/10)-aromatic strength.
Attack: creamy fizzy with an acidic backbone
Mid-palate: medium sourness, (MAIN) toffee (7/10)-sweetness, peppermint, burnt-bitter roasted malts
Finish: off-dry malts, grapefruit bitter & burnt bitter hopped finish.
Summary: Not your typical Saison. This beer is COMPLEX and quite taxing on the palate. Definitely a "different" beer.

Despite the low individual rankings i liked it and thought it had a good concept. Problem is it has a bit of an antiseptic taste to it. Not sure which of the spices it is but historically through beers, i really don’t enjoy it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Hueless darkest dark brown, big rocky mocha head settles and mostly lasts. Aroma is yeasty, dark fruitiness. Bitter dark roast, chocolate malty taste, dark fruits, spicy, some caramel, with a PNW hop influence. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. A somewhat confused crossover makes it: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
