It is rare such a unique beer turns out so well. The slight roasted flavor and aroma works perfectly with the slight barnyard funk.

A - Pours with two fingers of light tan foam on top of a dark brown body with clear, ruby highlights. The foam settles fairly quickly and leaves nice lace.

S - Musty yeast, some dark caramel, and fairly pungent acid.

T - Soft malt, light molasses, toffee, and red apple up front. Some light sourness in the middle and a finish of cola, balsamic vinegar, and pepper.

M - Medium-thick body, high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Nicely done, it has the aroma and some of the flavor of a hard core sour brew but almost no actual sourness. Kind of comes off like a "session sour", all the flavor and only a fraction of the intensity. Once again, St Somewhere makes some damn, damn good beer.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a small snifter. Beige head, moderate retention, tiny, tiny bubbles, slick, soapy lacing. Body is deep brown. Aroma is leathery, musty, overripe green apples, touch of candy sugar and pear. Taste is very light and refreshing despite its dark color, lightly acidic, mildly bitter, slight touch of champagne, some dark malt and a bit of raisin. Wow. Very interesting, certainly unique and delicious as usual from Saint Somewhere.

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!

Huge thanks to dsauter for this awesome beer as an extra for our trade! Thanks Danny!

Nice loud pop when uncorking this 750 C&C bottle!

poured into snifter glass.

reviewed from notes taken 01/01/13.

Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of tan head. Sticky head that lives some spotty lace.

Smell: dark malts, fruity, peppery and a touch of smoke.

Taste: a hint of pepper on the front end of this beer. transitions into an abundance of dark fruits like grapes, red apple and cherry. I get a little toasted bready flavor in there too. Little bit yeasty and spicy too like a begian beer. over the top complexity and unique elements found in this beer!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel that dries out a little at the end.

Overall: I am really loving this beer. Havent had the pleasure of trying many Saint Somewhere beers before, but if Serge is an indication of how they brew most of there beers... i am going to have to look into more of those beer! I will not hesitate to drink Serge again!

Leaves a low lying cream colored head, some lacing. Brown body.

Dry funky dark fruit.

Has a fruitiness that pops tight at the end that I am really digging on. Cherry, grape fruit flavor.

Not as dry as one would think. Medium mouthfeel.

Wow, caught by surprise on this one. Big fan. Would love to try this one again. Fruit pops...near top tier saison.

i have just been in love with all of these saint somewhere beers, but this might be my favorite of the lot, one of them at least, its amazing. a charry black saison with a ton of dry ashy roast to the grain base in both smell and taste, none of the chocolate notes, none of the dried fruit, just a barren dry blackness, unlike very many other malt bases i can recall. the yeast, as usual with these guys, is what makes the beer so special. coming form the frothy murky grey head on this i smell brett, a mild strain that is just getting up and running, and i smell a saison strain that has none of the belgian estery properties we have come to expect from them. its way different, more of a dry spice, a white pepper sort of complexion, and its pretty darn impressive. plenty of hops in it too to fill in where malt sweetness or fruited character might usually be on the palate. its grassy and clean, and gives some leafy life to the static malt character (not a negative). the beer is so dry, and so well carbonated, this is bottle conditioning to perfection in my book. light for its color, drinkable forever, and entirely unique in terms of the yeast flavors. i would love to age one of these and see how it changes, but its already so good why risk it. if you find one of these, buy it, you will not be disappointed!

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter.

A: An opaque dark brown beer, with light visible carbonation and a good medium brown head.

S: Light coffee aroma, spices, and fruity Belgian yeast.

T: Follows the nose. A bit of a biting bitter presence here (not sure if it's a hop or coffee bitterness), but some fruity yeast esters come through as well.

M: Medium body with a nice round mouthfeel. Alcohol presence very well-hidden.

O: Tasty but very different. The coffee and the Belgian sweetness both come through well, and the combination is certainly unusual. I'll be drinking more.
