Opaque dark brown - black beer with a good pale tan head. Smooth softish palate, semi dry. Soft dark malt cream. Light sourness and dark fruits. Whisper of smoke. Finishes soft and semi dry. Very light citrus at the finish. Nice - quite complex and pretty drinkable.

harrisoni (13193) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle from the brewery and drunk at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Black dark brown beer with a lasting tan head. Chocolate and lime/lemon on the aroma. But mostly chocolate but lovely chocolate. Again it’s just full and clean and fautless in the mouth. Roasty chocolate flavour. Hoppy chocolate lime. Strange but quite nice at the same time.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. A really dark brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. The aroma is pretty roasted, with some bonfire and dried fruits. Pine cones and resins too, some grass. Notes of molasses and licorice. The flavor has the same bonfire and licorice hints found in the aroma, with a faint peppery touch, pine cones and grass. Full body, semi-dry and quite carbonated,. with a nice bitterness towards the end. Grass, pine cones and a touch of black pepper and licorice. Unusual, but nice indeed. 140315

Leighton (10459) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle at home in London - sourced direct from the brewery. Pours rich, black-brown with a thick, luscious tan froth head that lasts for days. Roasted malts are the first hit on the nose, but next come notes of mild yeast, bread and tangy berries. Light to medium sweet flavor with tangy and leathery dark fruits, lightly bittersweet chocolate, burnt bread, tobacco, soft funk. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Incredibly dynamic to finish. You are at once smacked by robust roasted malts and all their chocolate, earth and ashy tobacco, then you get cleaned up by the tangy dark fruits, berries, decent funk. Wow. Everything really comes together here. Brings to mind the dark saisons I’ve tried from Hill Farmstead. This is hands down one of the best beers I’ve had from Partizan.

GT2 (8163) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Short: A properly executed black saison focusing on dark bread

Origin: Bottle Size: 330ml Glass: Tired Hands oversized stemware Price: Gift Date: 1/9/14
Long: Thank you Leighton for this one! A clear, deep cola pour generates a mega, rocky coffee beige foam. Excellent formation and retention. Nose is dusty, farmy, cocoa powder, deep pumpernickel bread, torched sugar, really fresh dark bread, vanilla. Taste is bitter, dark bread, unsweetened cocoa powder. Quite the dusty mouthfeel with higher aeration as expected for style but feeling a bit too chalky. Still, a well done black saison which is asking for trouble.
Flaws: Overly chalky mouthfeel
Skill Level: High, proficiency at difficult styles
