My first reaction was, "What the hell, I thought this was a saison." Pours dark brown with a dense creamy light brown head that seems to last forever while continuously building in my New Belgium globe glass. Aroma is hard to find in all that foam but I do get light spice, toasty malts, after it fades I get more tobacco and ripe dark fruits. The taste is excellent crisp and yet insanely rich and dense feeling in the mouth from the creamy carbonation. Very nice beer.
