Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Very light spice. Slight dark malt vibe. Little toffee - treacle and bruised fruit. Fairly dry finish. Tasty but not seducing me.

Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle shared late night during RBWG 2015. Pours Deep brown with a creamy tan head. Well toasted malts in the aroma, light cocoa, burnt cereal. Medium sweet flavor with basic milk chocolate, low bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. More toasted cereal on the nose, dusty chocolate, burnt leaves. Not bad.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver; 8% ABV
Black color with creamy beige head. Solid dark beer, with strong chocolate and malt flavor, not ashy, with mild earthy character that is possibly from the "Saison" yeast.
Round beer, well constructed, very pleasant.

Theydon_Bois (20425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle at home, thanks to JF, 29/03/14. Light black with a good sized tan covering. Nose is tarte fruit rind, charred wood, dank notes, tobacco, light spice. Taste comprises caramel, brown sugar, light cocoa, tangy woody licks. light plummy notes and dark fruit.. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Nice beer but more a sweet stout or stout, not feeling the saison, dark or otherwise!

mcberko (18556) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
On tap at Bottleworks, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of yeast, chocolate malt, light herbal notes and candied sugar. Flavour is quite sweet for a black saison, with bittersweet chocolate, candied sugar and loads of yeast. Very highly carbonated and becomes very sweet the more I drink. Decent.

3.8
Oakes (18467) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2017
Dark brown. Thin head. Sweet...toffeeish depth is nice. Has a really soft body. Not much saison to this. Good black malts. A touch more in the way of dark fruits and you’d have a really good old ale.

2.9
Ferris (16267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle - Dirty earthy notes. Cloudy dark brown with a small white head. Mushroom and earthy notes. Very odd.
