look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Deep and murky opaque brown color with a two finger tan head that settles slowly. Nice lacing. Aroma bursts with very roasty, freshly brewed espresso, followed by piney hops and some subtly fruitful yeast esters.

The flavor delivers on the promise of the aroma; I found this to be a top notch coffee beer that while subtle and complex is also pretty in your face in terms of roast and quality coffee taste. Again piney, somewhat resinous hops are the secondary flavor component and provide complimentary bitterness that lingers nicely in the aftertaste. The yeast and its accompanying spice, pepper, and fruit notes play a lesser role but are still discernible.

Medium full bodied with medium carbonation and an overall delightfully smooth and creamy feel. Fairly dry in the finish. A thought provoking and memorable, fascinating and totally drinkable beer.

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.

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

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.

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.
