notalush (5269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours like cola - fizzy, dark brown - nose of mineral, chalk, dusty yeast, moderate sour acidity, floral bitterness, underlying chocolate sweetness - flavor is actually quite sour up front - an acidity runs through to the finish, until a strong sweetness develops - in between, there’s some black cherry, licorice, light chocolate - it’s that sourness that is really most prominent, though - really disappointing product from Stillwater.

Concealer (909) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a red tinge, beige head that lasts. Aromas of spices, yeast, chocolate, and malt. Flavor is roasted malt, licorice, yeast, fruit, and chocolate. Light and crisp.

Ernesto987 (4415) - Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Roasty and Saisony yeast strains, this is just an ashy saison, it’s ok but disjointed and unbalanced

Defensemaster (30) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2013
With moderate head retention and a dark brown appearance, this black saison ale wafts slightly of cloves. It tastes of dark, bitter chocolate with a dry finish. ---Cheers until next time! DMSR

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep brown, a bit hazy appearance with a light brown head. Anise, roasted malty, a bit spicy, a bit earthy aroma. Kind of tangy, cherry dark fruity, plum, grape, big licorice, light chocolate flavor. Kind of an odd ball but not bad per se.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Woah, really a black beer. Light bubbly tan head. Atoma is earthy, fruity, smokey and yeasty. Very complex. A yeasty, earthy, fruity saison that delivers on this hybrid style. Fizzy, wet mouthfeel but dry finish.

Ratman197 (10860) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, coffee, fruittiness, yeast and spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of toffee, tobacco, licorice, yeast and light spice with a crisp dry lingering licorice finish.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Tap at Beer Authority. Deep black pour with a thin white head. The nose is decent - a bit of soft cocoa and licorice along with some light fruitiness on the back. A little bit of tartness and a touch of earthiness as well. Fairly unusual finish - herbal with a touch of something like chestnuts.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of slight berry, grape, hints of oak, slight smoke, touch of grain, biscuit, roast and slight coffee, toffee. Taste is a mix of toffee, grain, biscuit, slight roast, hints of earth, grass, slight oaky notes, finishing berry, grape forward. Odd.
