3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours an opaque brown color. There was a very small beige head that left no lacing. The nose is interesting. Chocolate malts, floral and faint spices. The taste is very good. Chocolate notes, wheat, faint spices and a faint breadiness. This was nice!

Sampled at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, light fruits, dark malts, and a little roast/chocolate. Flavor the same with a little roasted and chocolate on the finish. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown color with a large off-white head. Average head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nutty and spicy notes. The taste is herbal, minty hops, a tart note and chocolate. Medium bodied. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark toasty flavors. Light Saison type yeast. This yeast strain isn’t very Saison like but unique in it’s own way

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma mixes toasty malts with a subdued Saison yeast. Flavors ate dominated with a great range of Brown Porter-like malt range. Dry and toasty. Good, if malt focused.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A roasted chocolaty dark Belgian ale. Decent beer, not much of a Siaons.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Brown body topped by a very small beige head
In long: The nose is mostly roasted and milk chocolate. Taste is very roasted, fudge cake, lots of milk chocolate, cacao, earthy hops. A bit sweet. I don’t doubt the beer uses a Saison yeast but it does not some trough. Another dark Saison that doesn’t deliver. Not a bad beer at all but not much of a Saison. I really don’t want to sound like some kind of racist just because of the beer color, but Saisons should be pale color beers. And black people should not ride in our buses.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. Sounded interesting. Third of three saisons on tap.Black body with light brown head. Unfiltered dark, 8 malts, hopped by Sybilla, Crystal. Very shwartzbier-like, roasty,some chocolate, omplex. Unfortunatelythe roast comes on strong, coffee-grindish.
