3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
14oz. Stem draught at Alibi Room.
Pours a murky dark-red brown, like very strong tea. Little, yellowish foam. Nose is light, hint of sourness and hard candy.
Taste starts round in line with the nose, brown sugar, but then drops of with a bitter finish. Burnt caramel. Expected a bit more sourness, but still interesting and original.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with off white head. Aroma has tart cherries and dark fruits, cocoa, vinager, nutty. Flavor is far to tart so it overwhelms this dark fruity Saison, tart cherry, slightly funky, and nutty. Vinager notes are out of place and hard to imagine that was the intent here.

From the bottle, dark amber color, plenty of rye flavor, a little spice in the flavor. Gets better as it warms. An enjoyable rye beer.

Tap. Pours hazy dark ruby brown with a small beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is like rye bread, cocoa, molasses, sorghum. Flavor is the same, medium sweet with minimal bitterness and some rye spiciness. Light bodied. Very interesting and different beer. I enjoyed this one.

750ml bottle, shared by dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a deep, dark amber-brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is malty, bready, maybe a little orange citrus. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity, tart cherry, some pineapple hops, with a light fruity finish. Surprised at how much my take agrees with the deScription. Very tasty.

On draft at THE LOCAL beer bar in Eureka, CA, Pours a rich dark brown with a big and creamy light tan head that had great retention and left excellent lacing rings. The nose is of dark roasted malt and dark ripe fruit. Medium plus in body. Good rich mouthfeel. The flavor is very rich with some chocolate, ripe fruit and some wood. Finish is funky, and quite dry A really tasty and enjoyable brew.

Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is deep brown with a huge, off-white head and great lacing. This one is way over-carbonated; the foam just continues to grow and is starting to come out of my glass. Rye, bread, citrusy hops, floral, and soapy aroma. Taste is toffee, light roast, dark cherries, somewhat belgian yeasty, citrus, and soapy hops with a light bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.
