Beautiful, even-toned red/black, with an inch of light brown head. Aroma is sweet and lightly grapey, with additional fig notes. Taste is much more dry than expected, and clean, with roasty malt, and dark fruit notes. $3/12oz

Ferris (7571) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Can - Dark malts, light toast and a touch of cocoa. Deep jet black with a decent light brown head. Toasted malts, touch of light molasses and a bit too much carbonation which hardens the edges a bit. The carbonation may have killed this a bit.

June 12, 2015 - on tap at Bricks. Dark pour with limited head. Aroma was roasted malt and light yeast and spice. Taste was consistent with aroma.

nuplastikk (5032) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
12oz can at Brasserie V. Brown-black body with a foamy beige head. Kind of odd herbal meets chocolate aroma. A pretty solid dark saison. Cocoa touches. Not unlike a Porter in a lot of respects. Doughy malts, with a pleasant Saison twangy undercurrent. Easy drinking, quality brew.

oliodnb (522) - ITALY - JUN 1, 2015
355ml can. Pours very dark cola brown, almost black, with two fingers of creamy light beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, some caramel, light coffee, light yeast. Taste is similar, nice roastiness, light hoppy finish. Light to medium body, a bit too watery, medium carbonation. Not bad.

unclemike (2527) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Black pour with slight tan head and very little retention. Aroma is roasty, herbal and dark chocolate. Tastes are along the same lines with coffee and spice. Texture is slick and a little under-carbonated for me. Interesting though.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
drsordr (1485) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Can pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose red fruits, cherry, light roasted malt, and slight powdery. Taste lighter fruit up front, light roast and cocoa. Mild Belgian fruit character.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
EtTuCthulhu (1356) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2015
The beer pours a very dark brown color with a medium tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is pure roasted malts and chocolate malts, and the taste is mildly umami and a touch bitter with a roasty aftertaste. The palate fuses a thin texture, average carbonation, and a medium-light body.
