Johnsense (1322) - - MAY 23, 2016
Pitch black pour, foamy head. Mainly charcoal in the aroma. Char up front, little farmhouse character, roasted malt. Medium body. As farmhouse as a Yonge and King condo.

Style et résumé: Saison noire quid donne la grippe.
Comment: EBF 2016.
Portrait: Je ne suis pas un fan des saisons noires. Ceci étant dit, cette bière ne fait rien pour me réconcilier avec le style. Des saveurs de malt chocolat terreux. Ordinaire.
Note: 6/10

mathieuc (3248) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
EBF 2016. Pours a reddish brown with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of chocolate, coffee... Does not register to me as a saison at all. Taste is more chocolate, roasted malt and moderately sweet. Not a saison at all; even if you call it "imperial" it should at least feel like one. Body and carbonation were average. Light acrid roasted malt. Sticky. Not a saison.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
tap at EBF 2016. unclear dark brown , burnt orange, with a nice reviving dark beige cap, good lacing. very fruity berries, lots of booze, roastiness stout-ish character, milk chocolate, molasses sweetness. bright carbonation, medium body - feels really heavy; kind of harsh grassy-spicy finish. muddled concoction. blah.

SlovakSniper (4984) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Saison noire, café froid ou vieux avec caractère suret, saison, épices, malts rôtis, cendre naissante, je ne trouve pas que les saveurs des malts et des levures marchent dans la même direction. Difficile à boire pour moi. Malts chocolatés terreux. Bof et rebof.
