3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Black pour, massive lasting head. Bandaid funk and cola aroma. Hoppy, funky, yeast, some dark chocolate, grass, though nothing really stands out. Light sweet aftertaste.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1/V/14 - 50cl bottle @ ThirstyBird’s place - BB: n/a (2014-459) Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing the bottle!
Bit cloudy very dark beer, big aery to creamy beige head, pretty stable, very adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: artificial brett all the way, something nasty, reminds me of latrines, damn dirty! MF: over carbonated, medium body. Taste: this is just nasty, I taste clams, bit salty, rotting stuff, artificial brett, pretty sour. Aftertaste: still dirty, artificial brett, pretty bitter, roasted malts, unpleasant brett flavours. Wow, what is this supposed to be?

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!
