3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Found this described as a black saison, and the description is accurate. Saison like citrus flavors dominate. Easy drinking with a pleasant aftertaste.

Thank Nietzsche for small favors... $8.99 four-pack from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a lovely dark, dark brown with a foamy but think light tan head with decent lacing. Nose of tobacco, char, molasses, some banana, funky yeast, heather. Some wood and earth, and a hint of anise. Pretty dry finish. Really digging this four-pack.
