DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle, shared by tmoney99. My sample was towards the end of the bottle Mostly hazy dirty brown color, with lots of small white yeast particles visible in the body. Thin, kind of airy tan head, little to no lace sticks, kind of loose. Awesome zesty citrus smell and earthy hops, much more potent of a nose than expected! Bit of chocolate in there, some darker spices (saigon cinnamon). Medium-plus body, smooth, softer carbonation, lightly dry finish. Bigger bitter taste for a saison, minimal zesty sweet. Pretty spicy flavor, maybe a bit too spicy. Nice example of a black saison, though. One of the better ones Iíve tried. More hops and bitterness than I remember from other examples.

b3shine (4433) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks solid; a fairly opaque dark cola with light beige head and a bit of sediment. Smells solid; dark malt, yeast, dark fruit, and some spices. Tastes like it smells with a bit of bitter chocolate too. Solid on the palate with a tingly mouthfeel. A decent black saison.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of smoke, bandaid, grape soda, old fruit and cocoa. Medium body.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Dark colored pour. Almost black. Foamy tan head. Little bit of lacing. A slight sour aroma mixed with rubber and roasted malt. Taste is roasty with a bit of a sour note. Not bad. A bit strange but in a good way.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Reddish black, big tan head. Smells funky, with a subtle milk chocolate note. Tastes tart up front, with a little sweet mixed in. Just a touch roasty coffee flavors, too. Hint of funk, too.

Nero55 (476) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2013
@Magic City Brewfest. Dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and raisins. Medium body roasted malts with belgium yeastyness and spice notes. A unique spin on a saison.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Dark mahogany with big, foamy, fine-bubble, beige head, good legs / Delicate, muted, musty nose of orchard & dark fruit / Light body, just a touch thin, acidic, some initial sweetness then dry in the middle with some woody astringency, and fine bitter finish / Elegant, light flavors of apple, grape, balsamic vinegar, date, molasses, smoke, rose hip, chrysanthemum, oak / In this acidic style of saison, it lacks the punch of the best (e.g., Jolly Pumpkin), but itís a brew worthy of contemplation, on the porch on a summer day.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 23, 2013
Almost black pour with a khaki head. Peppery and roasty nose. Some hints of vinegar, lots of anise, grass, and grape. Quite dry, maybe a little tea. Nice aroma. The flavor is a little less impressive. Very roasty and acetic. Grape soda, pepper, black tea, and lots of grass. Fairly dry and very highly carbonated.

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of roasted grain, herbs for the hops, musty for the yeast, with hints of sour apple, vinegar and faint dark dried fruit. Head is large, frizzy /frothy, light tan with darker swirls, with good slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts heavily acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter, and a bit acetic. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. The dark color belies the light, tart, and refreshing qualities of this tasty Saison.

changeup45 (1708) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from Knightly. This pours a dark cola color with a thick khaki head. The aroma is roasted malt, banana ester, clove, light ash, and chocolate. Going down the carbonation is noticeably high. The flavor shows a tangy lemon taste with black tea; yeasty notes, and roasted malt in the finish. This isnít bad but thereís a solvent thing going on, thatís consistent throughout, that isnít all that pleasant. I think if the abv were higher that would be unbearable. But this is drinkable enough with some decent other flavors.
