Bottle shared by AdamChandler at cellar temp back on 3.24.14. Black pour with a bit of cream colored head that stays around for a while. Smells like some grapes and dark fruits. Flavor is similar - dark fruits, spices, and some vanilla coming through. Drinks smooth.

ctipping (1253) - Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2015
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 9/8/2014. Black body. Medium off-white head. Thick collar. Aroma is light fruitiness. Roasty. Light acidity. Sharp tart taste. Toasty malt moves into deep roasted malt. A bit of lemon. Yeasty. White wine peaks out behind the roast. Medium body. Well carbonated. Tough to pull off the dark saison. Not the best in the series.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roast, cocoa, wood, licorice. Thin mouth, rich malt, roast, cocoa, vanilla, oak, dark fruit, very good.

Bottle @ Steve_0 during my 10k tick fest. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. Dark chocolate, pine, mint, funk in the nose. Medium light body. Light citrus, lemon, pine, spruce tips, dark chocolate, and some funk. This is pretty interesting but doesn’t blow my mind.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and great lacing. Funky, acidic, tannic, somewhat tangy, woody, light roast, caramel, and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is tangy, grapey, caramel, brown sugar, tannic, orange juice, hay, and dark fruits with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty good - just not a huge of dark farmhouse ales.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pour out of 375mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of oak, cocoa, roast, some slight vinegar, slight red fruits into a bit of earth. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, oak, earth, slight yeast into a bit of grain, slight dark cocoa, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet.

Bottle, 1/1/2015. Pours a black color, light tan head fades to a haze on the surface, small curtain of lacing left around the glass. Aroma of tart cherries and other dark fruit, with dusty, nutty chocolate and roast notes; vanilla, light barnyard and wood notes in the finish. Taste has more pronounced vinous notes, tangy tart dark fruit, citrus and oak, roast bitterness offsetting in the finish. Light body. Very nice dark saison.
