Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. India black coffee saison.This batch at 6.9% abv. Local coffee that generates a good coffee aroma. Black bodied and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Very coffee yet well done and tasty for what it is. Hopped, and I prefer that to coffee myself. (274 characters)

1 L swing top growler purchased at the brewery on Sun., 04/13/2014, poured into my The Bruery "Rue the Day" larger snifter glass, unknown brewing/bottling date, drank over an hour

A: 2/3 - dark-brown coloration; little clarity due to color (not hop or chill haze); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge as a creamy tannish/mocha head that clings to the glass and reagitates on swirling

S: 9/12 - lots of coffee and hop - pine, resiny and citrus/grapefruit notes - smells to me more like a good black IPA than a "India Black Coffee Saison" as advertised as I'm getting no saison character in the nose; also little malt or alcohol character; no flaws

T: 15/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a roasted malt and coffee bitterness that subsides as the Simcoe takes over - pine, citrus/grapefruit and resiny; nice balancing roasted malt and coffee comes back in; finishes super dry with little-to-no detectable alcohol

M: 4/5 - moderate carbonation; light-to-moderate body; moderate hop oils from Simcoe; high drinkability

O: 8/10 - again, I enjoyed this beer, but I expected something a little different from the advertisement as a saison; instead, this tastes like a solid black IPA; recommended regardless when on tap at the brewery

TOTAL - 38/50 (1,284 characters)

Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served several times into a sampler glass. Pours near-black with a nice tan head and good lacing. Thin collar throughout. Nose has a really excellent combination of chocolate, roast, coffee, and piney hops. Really beautiful. Flavor adds together the same components with a slightly-heavier emphasis on the hops with the coffee coming underneath. A light earthiness to it as well, especially as it warms. Just a touch of fruit in the background. Medium body. Dry and somewhat-bitter. Very interesting concept and strong execution. This one did not hurt. Excellent work, Jean. (608 characters)

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A coffee saison, eh? Poured a dark root beer color, somewhat translucent when held to the light; capped off with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee beans, roasty malts, yeast, piney hops. Though it shares some of the same basic qualities that you might find in a Cascadian dark ale, it's not nearly as in-your-face as something like that. The nose is reflected in the flavor, thinned-out (not in a bad way) coffee profile always in the background, bready yeast, pale malts, lesser notes of grass and piney and earthy hops. Medium body, goes down much like a typical saison as far as mouthfeel goes. Nicely made and pretty unique. (663 characters)
