Jet black with two fingers of mocha coloured head, some lace. Smell is of roast with a big black liquorice, chocolate and coffee with a sour cherry underneath, similar to a black forest cake in ways, a very light funk as well once this warms. Taste is of sour cherries and chocolate, cake like, liquorice, mid palate roasted flavours with some coffee, a bit of smoke and char into the finish. Lightly carbonated with a full chewy body. Overall this was quite solid, was expecting this to not be as good as it was for whatever reason, the saison yeast added a different element that seemed to work well on this occasion.
