22 oz. bomber poured into chalice...

A: Kind of a slightly hazy orange gold color with a pretty thin off-white head. Lots of carbonation coming up here. Good lacing. Okay head retention.

S: Good amount of smoke is present in the nose. Belgian yeast, musty basement smell, touch of wood, and a tiny bit of phenols.

T: Slightly roasty throughout. Typical Belgian yeast and hop flavors. Still musty and a touch sour. Not very much happening in the ester department. A bit dry. Finishes a bit smoky and peppery on the back end.

M: Mouthfeel is top notch. Nice, medium body, good amount of massaging carbonation, but not too abrasive. Drinks dangerously easy for 10.5%.

O: This is like the bastard child of a saison and an imperial stout. It works together pretty well, oddly enough. Different, but enjoyable. I don't know who this Matt fellow is, but cheers to him and RIP.

Bottle brought back from CA by my reluctant wife, thanks honey you're the greatest!
Pours a deep clear dark golden color with a decent sized bubbly, fluffy off white head that displays moderate retention. Aromas of cherry campfire wood with a fair amount of spicy and clove scents. I also get a bit of caramel, grapefruit, and pith in the nose. The flavor is what the aroma promised it would be. I get a spicy almost overly sweet with caramel saison with lots of smokey meaty phenols sweeping in at the end to create a nice balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly almost syrupy mouthfeel. I had my doubts about this one but this odd mash up just kind of works.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight spices, and a hint of floral aromas. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, pale malt, slight caramel malt, hint of spice, hint of hops, and slight floral notes. Overall, weak appearance, but better aroma, body, and blend.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a meringue-like two-finger white head. Nice ringlets of lacing.

S - Strong aroma of banana, clove, lemon, Belgian yeasts, damp wood, and a hint of barnyard funk.

T - Nice, sweet, woody smoke flavor which combines seamlessly with the beers other elements: pink grapefruit, golden apple, hay, honey, clove, and fine ground white pepper. Smoke comes back yet again in the finish, (more and more as it warms) but it's not that artificial "liquid smoke" taste, more of the woodiness imparted to salmon when cooking it on a cedar plank. Booze slightly warming on the tongue but not distracting.

M - Medium bodied, with medium (but soft) carbonation. Oddly creamy and somewhat slick at the same time. Wet clean finish, but then the flavors linger into a bit of a puckering effect. Honestly, I have never had a mouth feel quite like this one.

O - I really enjoyed this. Bold, complex, and non-traditional. I don't usually like saisons, especially when they lean toward sourness, but this one was more sweet and thus, a winner for me.

Stopped by roast house when I realized it was cappy night, half priced drafts. $3 for this one, very nice value. Beautiful beer with and excellent aroma. Taste was good but boozy, which at over 10 percent is expected. Overall an excellent beer that I would love to get again.
