Poured into a snifter from a growler purchased earlier this afternoon. The appearance is almost black with a two finger brownish tan head. The nose is a mild blend of saison yeast, wine, grapes and barrel. So much going on in this beer. It starts with a farmhouse funkiness and then goes to grapes, wine and wood. The barrel is definitely present but it isn't overwhelming. The wine brings a very dry feel to the beer throughout the palate but is especially apparent in the finish. So many interesting characteristics that I can't imagine how it worked. But it did.

Serving type: growler

Draft offering poured into a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a frothy mocha head that displays perfect retention. A swirl painte patches all over the glass.

The smells is fairly fruity with a yeasty touch before getting vinous from the barrel than earten and lightly peppery. There is a dryness to this that mingles between earthen grain and yeasty spice coupled with the tannins of the barrel treatment.

The taste is exceptionally vinous from the barrel aging that plays off the fruity quality of the yeast. Some hops are present adding a bitterness before getting dry and oaky. Lots of earthen feel to this with little to no malt inclusion. Other than the color there is hardly any roast picked up. In a blind tasting, you would be hard pressed to know this brew was this dark.

It is light bodied and modestly to almost effervescently carbonated. Overall a very nice brew that is bery easy drinking. It has a pretty big barrel influence but it works well. I am looking forward to drinking this again soon.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours pitch black with a nice one finger tall off white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of mild saison funk, light must, wine grapes, oak and dark roasted malt. Nice balance all things considered.

T - Starts off with the saison funk and light must quickly giving way to some grapes, oak wine barrel and lots of dark roasted malts. Finish is really roasty with a bit of funk thrown in, lingering long after the finish. A bit too much roast perhaps.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty/funky feel from start to finish. Strong roasty note really began to wear me down over the course of the glass.

O - An interesting saison. I liked the addition of the wine barrel aging, I feel like it added another dimension to the mix. It is just a little too roasty for my tastes but still worth a shot.
