The beer pours out in a light black color.

The aroma has roasted malt, a light herbal and spicy quality, a light breadiness.

On the flavor, the beer in the front has a porter like roasted malt and coffee. There's a spicy black pepper that combines well with the medium minus smoke and bacon quality. A hint of fruity esters. The finish is even more bacon, spice, herbal hops.

The decent brew with good qualities, but lacking in excitement.

Color- thick espresso. Full coffee foam head.

Aroma- hoppy and spiced with hint of roastiness.

Taste- An odd bird of a brew. Starts smokey with active carbonation, slightly bitter and roasty, finishing with a lingering rich roast and hops. Described as a black smoked saison. A Stone collaboration.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 7/7/2013

(bottle from 2012 - stored in a room temp environment, out of light - poured into a balloon)

A: somewhat impenetrably dark brown liquid, rather clear pouring from the bottle... tall tan-colored foam, rather compact for the most part, notable portion of islands of larger bubbles - possible sediment corruption... little lacing

S: toffee, touch of coffee grounds, and a rather pungent piney-leafy greenness... mildly smoky semi-dark cocoa, hints of black pepper and licorice perhaps... smells very much like a hoppy west coast stout - too much dark malt presence to be mistaken for a "saison", though it's nuance is there

T: a lot of the complex spiciness you'd expect from a Dupont, up front, and surprisingly matched/balanced against the bold, rich, smooth, decidedly Baltic porter malt flavors... unmistakably Belgian yeast phenolic character... wisp of smoke and soapy-floral in the aftertaste... rather soft yet supple bitterness reminiscent of a mix of orange-peel and dark chocolate

M: smooth and fullish like an Imperial Stout, coating the palate on pass-by with a coffee and creme type of texture... finishes quiet and dry, mellow warmth, if any... residual dark sugar and hop resins stick behind

O: don't know what this was like relatively fresh, but it's not too shabby in its current state... perhaps it's mellowed a bit on the spiciness, who knows?... still has a lot of flavor to offer, might just develop even more with age
