32oz growler from the brewery. Pours a murky dark brown color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of rich roasted coffee beans, old chocolate, and a hint of earthy hops. Taste of light roasted coffee, earth, hints of sour citrus, and bitter old chocolate. Definitely unique and different, but tasty and crushable! Good stuff

Missed this the first time around, pours black with thin off-white head light lacing. Aroma and flavor is roasted malt, espresso bean, pepper and cheese dip, and bitter pine. Lighter to medium body. Reminds me of an iced coffee with some hops. Solid

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. India black coffee saison.This batch at 6.9% abv. Local coffee that generates a good coffee aroma. Black bodied and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Very coffee yet well done and tasty for what it is.

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

JAXSON (529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Near black pour, dark in this place but can see some chestnut edges. Nose is fresh coffee beans, bright earthy hops. In short, the mouth is a mish mash of of roasted coffee and bitter hops. Not entirely attractive mouth, though the nose is decent. Muddled and dull, I’m not a huge fan of overly roasted malt in hoppy beers, but still this is one of their weaker offerings.
