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.

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.

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.

An India Black Coffee Saison hopped with Simcoe. On draft at Tired Hands.

Pours dark brown, near black with a retentive khaki head. Flavor and aroma have a light roast and coffee bitterness that blend well with the house Saison yeast and slightly lactic, creamy body. Medium thick, dry finish, very light pine hop bitterness. A favorite from the opening, the restrained coffee and bitterness played nice with a maltier Saison.
