Poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance- As poured, 3-finger light brown head. Very lasting &
excellent lace. Black, almost opaque. I actually tried to shine some light through it and it blocked it all out.
Aroma- Big. Mint, medicinal, herbal, you can smell the funk.
Taste- That minty flavor transforms a bit with the roastiness, but it's still in-your-face. Much rounder in flavor than I would suspect from the aroma. Nice light acidic tang, slight clove and ~allspice background.
Mouthfeel-light to medium creamy body. Moderate carbonation. It's just very-interesting.
I didn't think that I would enjoy it as much as I am. I would definitely drink it again on a cool saturday afternoon.

Dark brown color with an incredible caramel head with great retention and leaving lots of laces. So this is a Dark Saison.
Refreshing funky aroma with a pleasant lemon tartness, Belgian yeast, spices and just a hint of cocoa powder.
Very original flavor, notes of coffee, a good deal of earthy and herbal hops, tons of spices (ginger, pepper, cloves, cardamon, so many that is hard to really say it for sure), anise, mint, pumpkin, licorice, green apple, finishing with a lemony tartness and dark chocolate.
Medium body with good carbonation, a bit effervescent.
Love or hate beer. Surprising taste, I was expecting the same usual average Saison taste; it actually reminded me of Jägermeister liquor with its medicinal flavor with Mexican mole! I found it much more interesting than most beers of its style, but it is definitely not for everyone, which may be the reason why this brew is underrated.
