RABinCO (1164) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Coaltrain’s the night before my first day back to work after moving to Colorado. Pours a deep, dark brown, but not quite black with a thick tan head that would be gushing without careful pouring. Aroma is super fresh grassy and lightly citrus zest hops. Taste is grass, lemon, orange, grapefruit, a bit of funk, sugar. Crisp, lightly sweet finish. Pretty easy drinking.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Dark body with a foamy brown head. Funky and earthy, a bit of pot, barnyard, grass. The dark malts take a back seat to all this hoppy yeasty funkiness. Delicious!

TXBadger (1261) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours pretty black with off-white head. Hoppy on the aroma, citrus, and pine. Citrus, pine, and floral notes on the palate. Fairly chewy for the mouthfeel. Finishes with a bit of semi-sweet cocoa, almost a bitter cocoa.

emacgee (3984) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2014
Very nice black pour with 1 finger dark tan head. Super hoppy aroma with a very green and leafy character. Very nuanced flavor with notes of tropical fruit and citrus. Roast and coffee notes show as well. Lots of citrus and juicy fruit in the flavor with some bitter chocolate too. Awesome.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2014
Luscious frosty, frothy, and rocky chocolate cream head on a smooth looking dark chocolate amber body. Delightful looking. Debittered smooth roastyness punctuated by sharp farmhouse and funky lactobacillus aromas. Earthy and complex--a nod to Phantome. Spicy farmhousey body. Funky bitter sour, earthy, quite complex, and medium to full-bodied. Lacto-bacillus throughout this smoothly roasted saison. This tastes like an old-world saison made close to the earth. Outstanding craftsmanship.

fattybladdy (507) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2014
The funky galaxy pours a dark brown with massive foamy head. Pretty nice aroma, sour fruit and roasted malt. Taste is bitter piney hops with grape and ash. A very unique brew.

bwa5879 (616) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2014
Dark brown or black pour with a few inches of beige head. Aroma of leather, dried berries, metallic/iron, very peppery, lots of florals, lemon, meaty summer sausage too. Soft carbonation with a dry finish. Lots going on with this one. Galaxy hops come off as piney flavor, tastes of grape, peppery funky yeast, cracker-y yeast and an ashy smokey taste on finish like a campfire after being put out. Some similarities to Stone’s Cali-Belgique IPA but a bit funkier/ashier.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2014
Another random bottle from Louisville Whole Foods. This is a busy, complex and tasty beer. Good hoppy bitterness, a little funk, some earthiness, plus a little chocolate and coffee. Really nice.

tectactoe (1533) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Mostly black all around with a HUGE, mocha colored head that lasts for days, chunky & perched atop the black brew. Aroma is kind of strange & all over the place with lots of clashing elements... grass, mild Brett funk, wood, pineapple, roast, more grass, citrus peel, bubblegum (hinting at Belgian yeast), hint of cocoa powder... Quite a lot to take in all at once. Taste starts with a bit of char & roasted malt, even with faint coffee beans, leading into a big pot of ashy, peppery, & herbal hops... Notes of zesty grass & fruity orange peel play over the roasted malt, leading to a quite dry & staunchly bitter finish. Unique, that’s for sure, but the flavor combinations don’t compliment each other as gracefully as I’d hoped. Still good overall, but my expectations were higher.
