Marstonlad (963) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours black with a huge dense head. Despite color the aroma features mostly elements that are typical to saisons: fresh citrusy fruitiness in a yeasty, slightly spicy, barnyardish setting. Fairly strong presence of hops as well. Taste is crisp and lightly sour, the finish bitter. Fairly hoppy for a saison. Flavours of pale fruitiness and yeasty spiciness rise again to the forefront with supporting maltiness appearing in the background. The palate is medium-bodied, the carbonation lively. Interesting style hybrid. Color leads easily astray; taste and aroma are not as far way from standard saisons as the blackness suggests.

Bottle. A very dark beer, a head is medium and beige. Interesting aroma has dark fruitness, spicyness, flowers, earthy sourness. Taste has fruitness and berries, earthyness, storng bitterness, dry, some sourness. Medium bodied. Very interesting brew, there is high potential but not totally succesfully.

Moebbels (824) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2017
A very dark brown beer with a creamy well lasting head. Sweet nose with notes of sour cherries, chokolate and coffee beans. Dry, tart flavor with a somewhat bitter, tanninic finish. High carbonation and light palate. Not very balanced, such dark beers shouldn’t be this dry.

Tap at Beer Hunters. Opaque black color, medium-sized beige head. Herbal, piney, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted flavor with saison white pepperness. Piney hoppyness. Rye is also there. Interesting.

Tap (TCBW2017)

Saisony aroma, a bit dirty, some fruitiness. Clear dark red, small tight head. Sweetish saisony taste, has a drying aspect to it. Light body, moderate carbonation. Finish similar to the taste, but shows a nice bitterness. Decent drinkability, not showing any particular alcohol component. A bit odd.
