on tap at the brewery

Pours an opaque black color with a thick tanned head resting on top. Retains throughout the pour, leaving sticky lacing ringed around the glass.

Roasted, invigorating coffee aromas in the nose, twisted with dark, slightly sweet malts and a hint of chocolate. Splash of piny hops spike the scents with a light tartness and saison-like funk.

Flash of piny hops up front with a soft bitterness. Bold, roasted coffee beans with a touch of chocolate and nuttiness. Dark malt complexity swirled with a faint tartness and some yeasty funk. Finishes dry with lingering coffee flavor.

Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, dry and bubbly on the tongue. An interesting interpretation of the style which I really enjoyed, but I can't see drinking more than a glass or two.

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.
