On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours dark brown-mahogany with a rich beige foam. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, spices, some belgian notes, chocolate and berries. Confused. Flavour is sweet at first with an acidic end, a bit rough. Medium to high body, medium carbonation. So so... nuplastikk (6256) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2015
12oz bottle shared by Anndiesel. Deep brown body. Foamy off-white head. Smooth brown chocolate tones. Not so unruly with the saison yeast, which is really nice...gives it more of a classic Belgian dark ale feel than an overboard US saison. The schisandra and hibiscus round it out well. The hibiscus drying it a little and the rose hips fleshing it right back out. Pretty solid, unique offering.

12oz bottle from J’s Liquor in Owensboro, KY. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Dark black with a plum hue. Thin tan head. Strong citrus and floral aroma with a hint of malt. Medium body and nice carbonation. Very tangy on the palate with a apple crispness but not too strong. Hints of brown sugar balance out the tartness. Very floral throughout.
