COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aberrance is our black saison. We aged it in a Cabernet barrel for 6 months with a special blend of our house wild yeast/bacteria cultures and some critters from our good friend Chad at Crooked Stave. The Cabernet barrel added some great complexity and richness to the beer with some hints of funk, fruit, and a nice subtle tartness. At 8%, Aberrrance as a nice full and elegant character.

hopscotch (9952) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, fleeting, khaki head. The aroma is a complex swirl of roastiness, chocolate, dark cherries with a light splash of cabernet sauvignon and hints of sarsaparilla and damp wood. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a unique fusion of tart, chocolaty and dark berry components. Tangy, crisp, fairly dry finish. Really nice. Bottle provided by darkguardian!

Dogbrick (9085) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours black with a thin beige head that dissipates steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, funky yeast and fruit. Medium-bodied with a vinous oaky character and flavors of dark fruits and earthy yeast. The finish is mildly funky with a red wine aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.
