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. tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2011
The aroma is chocolate, yeasty, peppery. The appearance is deep brown, tan head, like a stout. The flavor is chocolate, spicy. Medium in body. The finish is piney hops. Quite good. 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2011
