Beautiful color, dark brown/black, awesome foamy head with a very dark mocha color. Not very aromatic, but clear hints of coffee. After tasting it, a strong coffee flavor is uncovered. Not heady at all, nor boozy. Hints of sour beer linger, maybe cherries or lambic.

This is a very complex beer. It is not heavy to drink, it's one of the less filling Russian Stouts I've had. Dry and bitter remains in your mouth.

I totally dug this beer. Pours totally black with tan, khaki head. The nose is dark malts, coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits - figs and cherries - picked up on some of those farmhouse-y saison yeast notes. The taste follows the noise primarily with the dark roasted grains, cocoa and dark fruits - maybe a little vinous. Some sweetness that is almost like Belgian candi-sugars, a little more oak and slight funk from what I am assuming is the farmhouse yeast - though they are really quite minimal. Surprisingly smooth and full mouthfeel that has an incredibly dry finish. Again, I really enjoyed this beer. One my favorites from Jester King that I thought walked the line between the two styles quite well.
