fidelis83 (2003) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Near black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of cocoa, hints of roast and fruity, earthy yeast. Flavor is toast, nutty notes, cocoa, stone fruit, wet limestone, earth, leather, and clove heavy spice. Very strange combination. Light, dry body with a medium strength, sharp and blanketing carbonation. Pretty good overall. Even though this stuff isnít really amazing or anything I kinda want to try out some Schwarzbier or Dry Stout over Saison, Black and Tan combinations.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. Itís a clear-looking dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head. The aroma is rather weak, with some sourish berry notes and a little dark malty touch. A bit low on flavor too, but not bad considering the style. Not that it is very much to style though. Some berry notes and a little bitterness too. The body is medium to full, with a pleasant level of carbonation. Style set as Schwarzbier for this one, strange I think as itís made with Saison yeast. But anyway, it drinks easy and is quite tasteful too, although a tad ordinary. In a way. 130810

zdk (1813) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
tap at The Growler. Apparently a schwarzbier/saison hybrid is much like a black IPA. Nose is lovely hops, citrus peel on the nose. Lots of toasted malts in the body, roasted barley hulls, chocolate, vanilla, plums. Sweet bodied, finishes with some hop resins.

nimbleprop (5183) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 8, 2013
12oz bottle I picked up at Schneiderís DC. Looks awesome in the glass, opaque black, slightly thick, with some foamy, beige head. Has a very typical Stillwater aroma, lightly herbal, some dark chocolate, a little malt, a little potpourri, some cracker, toast. Flavor is pretty nice, only lightly sweet, some herbs, a little straw, some licorice, a little cherry, some soap. Medium bodied, dry finish. Sorry, but this is a black saison, not a schwarzbier. Absolutely unique, but only the color fits the style description of a schwarz.
