COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It is a ~8.5% ABV Black Saison. We fermented it with a Belgian saison yeast until it hit about 7% then we added our house ale yeast to finish it. Once it was done fermenting, we added it to new American oak barrels with a medium-heavy toast. Then we spiked it with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. The "Brett" is an isolated culture from Belgium that gives the classic barnyard, horse blanket character and pleasing tartness to lambic style beers. The tartness is mild but noticeable and adds a wonderful complexity to the beer. In alchemy, Philosopher’s Stone is a reference to the substance believed to be able to turn metal into gold. Similarly, we believe we have taken a normal beer style and turned it into something extraordinary.

Poured a beautiful dark color that lit up terrifically under light to a deep ruby red. Notes were of yeast and malt. The taste combined the yeast with slight hops and grass.

A black saison that brown interesting. Pours a medium to dark cloudy brown, but far from the hue of a black IPA or imperial stout. An incredibly pungent funky brett aroma with notes of horse blanket, oak and chocolate. Moderate to faint sourness on the palate with dense carbonation
