Bottled on 6-13-12. Opened 8/30/14.

Pours very dark brown with a light tan head.

Smells of pepper and slight lemon. Some light roasted malt.

Taste is light and creamy. Definite citrus upfront which fades into a roasted caramel malt, which lingers with a nice peppery finish.

Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated upfront which fades into a nice creaminess.

Very good with 2 years on it.

Pepe Nero is brewed in the style of a Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale. Available in 12 oz. 4 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass. Served above 54 degrees fahrenheit.

Pours a tan white head of a frothy foam consistency over a maple brown body. Retention is average and lacing is light and droopy. The aroma is slightly tart and vinegar acidic with a roasted chocolate malt backbone, a slightly peppery and fruity yeast profile. The flavor is similar with a mild peppery fruit profile up front finishing on a dark roasted malt note. The texture is slick and peppery with a moderate carbonation for a frothy mouthfeel. The body is medium for the style, medium overall. Alcohol presence is modest, off characters are minimal. A very interestingly flavored dark saison with a good deal of roast and vinegar that sets it apart from others of its style.
