3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL thanks to EricE. Pours a full hazed deep brune with sheen, dense, yellowish foam. Thick, sheety lacing. Nose is a bit vegetal, tomato soup, celery stalk. Taste is heavy malt cereal, moving to lemon tea and finishing very whole wheat crackery. Palate is still a bit vegetal, mildly tart, freezer burn flavors. Hmm. As it warms, some chocolate comes through with mild banana esters. Improving to near dunkelweizen. Still odd.

Caramel and toasted malts, rye, bread, barley, very wholesome beer. Nice finish. Dry, medium carbonation, some alcohol detection. Not bad.

Bottle. Opaque purplish brown pour. Very nice beer. Definitely get the rye but some cherry and other fruits in it as well. Smooth, not too boozy. Just a nice beer. Would love to have it again if I could find it.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours a darkrreddish brown color with a medium plus sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark fruits, cherry, chocolate, spicy rye, caramel, yeast, some acidity and tartness to go with the funk.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusty, fruity aroma with light sourness. Foggy tea color, filmy head, small white sediment. Wine bottle, good label. Golden raisins, peaty malt, pointed bitterness, hops hit you in the back of the high palate. Lightish body. Warming. Peppery aftertaste. Thanks to someone at Baby Proof for sharing.

(Tap) I like this one. It has some spiciness but is still quite refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep almost ruby amber with a smaller tab head that laced. Aroma of tart cherries, spicy rye notes and hints of dark chocolate. Flavor of toasted malt, light roast, tart cherries and rye bread.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a very large light brown head on there. Nose has some roasting to it as well as caramel, and just a bit of rye spice coming through. Taste is dry up front with a bit of coffee and toastiness, then has just a hint of caramel sweetness in the finish. Interesting and complex...

Draft at the Hop Grenade. Earthy hop nose, dark Amber poir with a thick tan head (killed the keg). Malty, earthy slightly spicy saison. Nice.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of some spiciness, some caramel and toffee malts, light floral hops, and some hints of fruity notes. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

"Dry and spicy, and chewy and malty all at the same time. Interesting brew to say the least. Pepper, hops, sweet English brown malt, dark fruits... Quite the combo."
