Poured into a Tallgrass Brewing tulip glass. Foamed quite a bit when opening the can and produced a huge three fingers of sand colored head. Body is dark brown. Leaves a nice thick cap. Up front is floral hops followed by nice roasty malts. Candi sugar sweetness in the middle with some spicy saison yeast in the finish. Initial tastes of zesty, sweet saison that transfers into toasted brown ale type malts and roasted stout notes to pure ashtray and second hand smoke. Mouthfeel is prickly and light. An appealing looking/smelling ale with nice mouthfeel. However the ashy aftertaste really brings the drinkability of the beer down. It does smooth out after a while but not enough to let the beer be enjoyable.
Edit: as it warmed more farmhouse notes came out (straw/tartness) which made it more enjoyable.

I'd call the head on this one massive. Slowly reducing, but still showing almost two inches. It's a nice antiquated shade of tan, too, matching the deep brown color of this dark saison. Some light translucency. Laces hesitantly.
Lightly roasty malts border on brown ale intensity. Farmhouse yeast is restrained in the nose with subtle hints of dried fruit and straw. It almost has a bit of acidity. Some Belgian chocolate notes, along with coffee, vanilla, and citrus rind.
A decadent flavor profile for a saison featuring vanilla, coffee, Belgian chocolate, lemon, orange peel, candi sugar, and fresh fig. The yeast is slightly tart, which produces great contrast to what the roasty malts are doing. Slightly nutty, slightly soapy; and offering hay-like funk lite.
Has a richness from the strength and stocky body that I like. A whole lot of carb rattling around in my jaws. Decent.
I don't want to say it's particularly good, because it couls stand to have more assertiveness in the fact that it's a saison. But, I like drinking it, and would consider having another. A unique black saison with conversation to follow.
