Draft @ Jimmy the Greek’s. O.O.B, ME. Dark black, small tan head, mild lace. Carbonation is real low. Now and flavor is real interesting nose and flavor. Roasted barley, wheat, charred malt. A black Saison is a differant kind of style. I find’t pick up and Belgian yeast, the Malta and wheat is more evident then anything else. To me it tasted more like a wheat based porter. Slightly linger roast finish. Tasty brew that blurrs the line of definition. Intresting recipe.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 From Growler Pours a deep umber black color with two finger mocha colored head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are earth heavy, touches of dark fruit, cocoa and a touch of kola nut. On the palate this beer is delicious, with a nice creamy medium mouthfeel loaded with bubbles...rich flavors of cocoa, earthy yeast, dirt, fig and spicy kola nut linger into an extremely dry finish. Well Done !
