5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle:   Deep brown, large frothy light beige head, sticky lacing.   Dusty aroma, faint fig and dark pitted fruit nose.   Musty and spritzy on the tongue, faint dark pitted fruit, airy breadiness, a bit of faint horse blanket and general musty barnishness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, and spritzy.   Musty, dusty, soft dark pitted fruit and horse blanket like finish.   Dark Saison is right, but it finishes light and without too much flair.   Seems decent, but its not anything special.   Enjoyable, dusty with spritzy dark pitted fruit.   Never comes across to me as a Saison, instead a very bubbley Belgian Ale.

Aromas of malted barley, balsamic vinegar, and berries. Taste is malted barley, subtle balsamic vinegar, berries; then rose water, honey, and bready malts in the finish.

daje (3338) - NORWAY - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle, february 20th 2015. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of tart berries, roasted malt and spices. Taste is herbal with licorice, sweet, with a tart ending. Perfumes aftertaste. A strange one, not bad but doesn’t quite secure a place amongst the best Stillwaters.

Ferris (10767) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2016
Draft - Toffee and dark candy sugar. Deep maroon with a cream beige head. Tastes much like it smells with some spicy notes as well. OK, but nothing great.

bastarda (377) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2016
@IPA Bar Berlin; beautiful very dark red colour; aromas of cherry liqueur with dark chocolate, hints of blackcurrants. More chocolate, in a dry and light body, nicely balanced by those cherry notes and also some aspects of wood, sweet spices. Dryish aftertaste of canned sweet cherries. Great experimental brew.

jinroh (1030) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours dark mahogany brown, almost black. Not much head. Aroma is feather like an oatmeal stout - sweetish burnt malts, a bit of dark chocolate. Taste is also full of roasted malts, relatively full body with velvety texture. Feels more like a stout for me, if it wasn’t written on the bottle would never associate this with saison (or dark saison, whatever it is). Anyhow, what I have in my glass is truly enjoyable and tastes great. Aftertaste is lingering, bit of liquorice and dark fruits adding a touch of acidity.
