On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Leftover from their tap takeover on Thursday. Dark pour, dark purplish brown. Dark fruits...raisin, plum, cinnamon. Not too heavy though, a sweet little saison. Not too bad; these guys make some decent beers.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at the bocktown, nice place but a somewhat rude beer this is. Very dark with a creamy head that promotes attractive lacing. Surprizingly just a clean beer smell. Barely any co2 in this stuff. Practically flat. Taste is difficult for a saison. Must be quite alky strong. Canít find many saison attributes but Iím no saison expert, hehehehh. Bitter medicinal feel for a finish, not impressed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can pours dark black brown with 2 finger head. Nose is malty grain, smoky dark cocoa, light fruity pine. Taste is similar with some sticky bitter smoke chocolate, ashy, soil, tiny metallic note which eventually fades. Finish is a mix of light bready malt, subtle yeasty fruit and herbal piney bitter chocolate. It doesnít all quite gel, but decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the can, the beer exploded. I got it in the glass quick but it was all beige head. Waited til it calmed down and poured the rest. Very interesting. Light feel but still the stout traits like chocolate and coffee. For a true rating I will have to revisit it as I only have one. Right now, I'm digging it.
