Bottle. Black with a light tan head. Aroma and taste are traditional Saison. Spelt, clove and yeast. Creamy palate. Solid but not much going on out of the ordinary besides the color.

Pours black with a little red around the edges and a tan head. Aroma is spicy yeast. Spicy pepper up front, little bit of metallic taste also, just enough to be unpleasant. Little bit of dark chocolate on themalt profile, I don’t really like how it blends with the yeast and the spice. Not really my cup of tea.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is mildly earthy with a hint of sour. Maybe. Med body. Flavor is touch of sour with following earthiness and some chocolaty malt. It’s much better than I make it sound. This is really good stuff, and the flavor profile is very unusual. Good!

RABinCO (1364) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle into nonic pint. Pours black, slight tan head. Vegetal, spicy, roasted aroma. Taste is veggies, vinegar, roast, a bit metallic. Definitely interesting but nothing great. Would be better if it chose one style instead of trying to straddle some line.

Ron (2566) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with little head that left quickly, thin off white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, yeast, light wheat and faint roast. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of sweet malt, yeast, spice, cocoa, roast, and a sweet finish.

Deep dark reddish brown. No head, almost completely still. Smells of charcoal and brownies. Hazelnut and raisins, with sugary caramel. A tad on the saccharine side but not too cloying. Some seriously earthy, horsey barnyard funk, son. The taste is more horsey, saison stuff, stone fruits (raisins/dates mostly), heavy yeast. The coffee is subdued, as is the hazelnut. The puckery sourness comes in at the end. Chalky finish, thick and coarse. For being such a small abv, it has a ton of flavor.

Ontape (316) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Solid black saison, mild funk but would have liked a bit more. Easy drinker at 5%. Would drink again but not a favorite.

jtclockwork (8571) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of chocolate, smoke, yeast, anise, dark fruit, stone fruit, earth and a touch of tobacco. Lighter medium bodied.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a large dark brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spice, roast, earth, anise, stone fruits. The taste is roast, chocolate, herbal notes, spice, earth, anise. Medium bodied. Interesting.
