3.96/5  rDev -0.5%

A - black with a thin, fizzy, lacing of brown head that quickly disappears

S - chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruit, spicy, a bit of Belgian funk

T - licorice, chocolate, dark fruit, mild spice, some yeastiness

M - medium bodied, crisp, could be better carbonated

This is a pretty decent beer. The dark malts are really the highlight here offering big licorice and dark fruit notes. The spiciness comes in at the beginning and tastes much like peppercorns and maybe coriander. Overall a nice, balanced beer with good drinkability despite the ABV. It's probably worth checking out if you're a fan of black saisons.

3.61/5  rDev -9.3%

22 oz. Dark cola brown pour, not a ton of carbonation present. Just a thin layer of cream colored head.

Aroma, A little unusual for the style, suprising amount of chocolate and molasses. Some licorice and herbal notes. Maybe some peppercorn.

Taste, A little more yeast, more peppercorn. Not as sweet as the aroma, more of a dark chocolate and roasted malt. Some licorice.

About medium body, enough carbonation but could use more. Dry enough. Drinks pretty well, would be better with more carb and a little less sweetness.

Not as nice as Pepe Nero for a dark saison to me, but still pretty good and worth trying if you like the style.
