Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served several times into a sampler glass. Pours near-black with a nice tan head and good lacing. Thin collar throughout. Nose has a really excellent combination of chocolate, roast, coffee, and piney hops. Really beautiful. Flavor adds together the same components with a slightly-heavier emphasis on the hops with the coffee coming underneath. A light earthiness to it as well, especially as it warms. Just a touch of fruit in the background. Medium body. Dry and somewhat-bitter. Very interesting concept and strong execution. This one did not hurt. Excellent work, Jean.

On tap @ Tired Hands. Poured a dark cola brown with a sizable tan head and minimal lacing. Huge coffee aroma exudes from the glass followed by pine, spice mix, and roasted malt. Taste is roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate leading to saison yeast and spice before finishing with slight piney hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel and tons of flavor lingering to play with the palate.

Super dark brown pour with a small off white head. Coffee grounds with roasty espresso and roasted malts. Dry and roasty. Full body with ample carbonation. Delicious!

Growler, thanks yourefragile. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, some coffee, pineapple. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, grapefruit, some pineapple. Light-medium body, low carbonation. Nice, but not very saison-y.

Super dank bag of weed nose with light chocolate and roast, a bit of dusty cocoa. Taste is moderately sweet moderately bitter, lots of weed and citrus hops. Solid.

Growler shared by yourefragile: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of beige head. Has a roasty complex coffee and dark malty nose with some light fruits and floral hops. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramel malts with a good dose of roasted coffee bittterness, some light fruity esters and crisp citrusy hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet with lingering coffee notes. A unique concept and well done.

Growler thanks to yourefragile. Muddy deep brown pour. Weak head. Oniony hop pellet nose with savory chocolate. Taste is bitter, dry, nutty, sharp. Dry palate. Palate is medium and dry. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and spice...light pine. Flavor is awesome!...coffee meets black pepper and great yeasty notes...some mild hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has some light pine and coffee. Just awesome.

An India Black Coffee Saison hopped with Simcoe. On draft at Tired Hands. Pours dark brown, near black with a retentive khaki head. Flavor and aroma have a light roast and coffee bitterness that blend well with the house Saison yeast and slightly lactic, creamy body. Medium thick, dry finish, very light pine hop bitterness. A favorite from the opening, the restrained coffee and bitterness played nice with a maltier Saison.
