3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle. Pours opaque black with a lovely, staying, large, creamy, beige head. Aroma has chocolate, vanilla, coriander, light anise, bog myrtle, cocoa, rosehip. Medium to high carbonation, fine dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, spicy chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, coriander, cardemum, nuts. Soft black pepper finish. Very spicy, but I kinda like it.

Dark brown almost black with a big beige head. Aroma is cherries, prunes, grapes, yeast, caramel, chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, some red fruits. Bitter aftertaste. Good but the fruitness donít combine with the roasted malt flavour. Strange Saison...

Ugh. This was a terrible beer. The only good thing about this beer was the aroma. Chai spices with not much else. The pour was a stout like dark brown with a one finger tan head. Taste was pretty bad. Too much going on and it didnít work. Strong spices, dark roasted malt made it a little bitter. Yeast and malt were drowned out by the crazy spices. Finished the beer, but it was difficult

Saison?! So confused. This beer pours dark with a chocolate milk head. Smells and tastes like thin mint Girl Scout cookies. So weird!

Takes a lot for me to dislike a saison but make it a straight black licorice bomb and that will happens. Dont advertise a secret blend of spices if it really just tastes like anise. Warn people.

Bottle. This is a pretty sour saison with an almost funky background note. I almost wonder if this is infected.
