COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Séance is a dark, complexly concocted Saison, rich with earthy hues and flavors. A mild tartness begins the journey, and an underlying hop bitterness sweeps the senses through a newly opened door of the mind, where you will soon find subtle hints of ripe fruit, bringing you to a place few dare to roam.

Dark burnt brown to black. nose is roast with a hint of dark chocolate fairly thin mouthfeel, burnt oak, rustic and bitter at the finish. Not like a saison more like a darkened amber ale but it’s pretty good

Mildly smells like old blast furnace slag. Nice black pour, attractive. Forst taste is piercing bitter astringent thing. Good sizzle but each slug is fun stuff followed by a stab in the middle back of yer tongue. Tastes like much more than the 4.5% listed here, I’d say abot 6% Yes, sharp beer thing hangs thru for a medium while on the end. Surpirizingly good sizzle almost makes this high personality saison enjoyable. Quite unique. Perhaps a saison crossed with a black IPA?

Fratto (2700) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Kroger. Dark pour with a tan head? Aroma is sweet chocolate, dark fruit, and vanilla. Taste is burned fruit and weird spices. Goofy coffee finish? Well, then.

suprchunk (2454) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Dark, dark brown colored pour. Small tan head that falls quickly. Little bit of lacing left behind. Malty nose with bits of molasses. Taste is a sweet malty base with a dry finish. Not bad.

r464 (1956) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Malty, nutty, and somewhat earthy. Tart light fruitiness, but dirty. Grass and garbage. Something is just a bit off with this one.

Pours a deep brown with a tan head that leaves a nice lacing. Aromas of fruit, roasted barley and a a touch of tobacco. Flavors of barley, a touch of coffee and notes of frsh fruit. Similar to a light black IPA. A very pleasant easy to drink beer.
