Bottle. Aroma was sweet caramel notes, some light grain and a very minor touch of funk. Flavor was caramel malts, some herbal notes. Okay.

Faint dried leaves and potpourri bouquet. Clear cola, enormous firm tan head. Dry cola flavor, pretty bland but a delightful almond finish. Light body, but not watery. Eh.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The look is dark, cola like, light off white head, and brown to black in color. The smell is sugary, malt, burnt sugar, toffee, brown rice, and eh. The taste is sweet, malty, teriyaki, off, and ick.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
DATE TASTED: November 8, 2013... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky’s Tavern pint... OCCASION: post soccer/rental car/surgery Friday!... APPEARANCE: jet black body; slush brown, chunky, topographically significant head that laces thickly as a cloud--promising... AROMA: peat, lactic, soda pop and funk--NOT the barnyard variety; more of a porter than a saison--a mislabel?...PALATE: full-bodied, powerfully off-kilter residue--not enjoyable...TASTE: first, the aftertaste: malt that drags and offers a mucused experience; actually tastes more like old pint glass than a refreshing saison...OVERALL: a disappointing seasonal, given the foreboding label and the usually enjoyable experience when drinking a saison; drinks too much like a chore, almost begging unfair comparisons to other, more reputable Hats or saisons...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Paul’s for feetsballing. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin white head. Smells of fruit and plums, a bit of oxidization, bready. Just on the thin side of medium-bodied, some tart malt, more weird plum. Tart and strange. Oxidized and boring.

This poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was of toast, light spices and grass. Flavor was burnt ash, caramel and fake spices. Just weird and not good.

On draught at Doherty’s Ale House. Dark brown, slightly opaque pour with a medium frothy head. Aroma of stale malt, raisins, and earth. Surprisingly light to medium mouthfeel with a tangy finish.
