Had to try a beer named after a Tim Dorsey character and featuring a ghost orchid on the label. I thought I hadn't had a black Saison before until I remembered Cigar City's Sea Bass.

A deep, deep ruby in color. Almost no light gets through. Big tan head that reduces to a thin layer.

Big sour aroma of grape and earthiness.

Roasted malt flavors (coffee, toast) combine with tart fruit (grape, cherry) to make a very interesting beer. It's tart, but not extremely so. There is earthiness too, but restrained.

Nice body, almost chewy.

Overall it's above average. I like St. Somewhere's other Saisons better. Not a barn burner.

Corked and caged bottle poured into Fantome tulip. Like most Saint Somewhere brews, the cork is lively! 2012 marked on the bottom of the cork! Nice surprise :)
Poured a deep black color with tan head...huuge 3 finger head.
Aroma is fantastic! Big funky, sour, cherry, leathery, with a roasty note. Flavor is chocolatey cherry, leather, funky, sour...its just so good.
Its dry but crisp...all around balanced yet chaotic.
I absolutely love this beer!

2012 vintage

a - poured a three-fingers thick tan, bubbly and fluffy head into a tulip glass that left a nice ring and sheet throughout. the body was dark brown, near black.
s - cherry tartness, some green apple, slight leather funkiness.
t - same as the aroma with a little more breadiness.
m - medium mouthfeel.
o - good beer but didn't wow me.
