look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Growler filled on 5/3 poured on 5/4 into a flute

A- A very dark brown almost black with a two finger khaki head.

S- Roasted coffee, earthy/piney hops, some saison yeast, slightly fruity.

T- Roasted coffee, citrus, some earthy spices, getting some influence from the saison yeast, bitter coffee finish with some piney hops, coffee bitterness lingers.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- This fits the description of India Black Coffee Saison. Nose was more IPA like and the taste was more Saison like. I am really enjoy this beer and am happy that I picked it up.

I appreciate the chance to try this - thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this. Sampled chilled in a cordial glass from the growler.

The color is opaque dark brown with thin white head with fine bead, lace sticks and retention is good. The smell starts phenolic almost spice-like and toasted but turns vegetal and begins to have a slight diaper-like scent as it warms with coffee undertones helping mask the aroma. The feel is dry with moderate carbonation and mild spice with some mild roasted notes and nutty bean textures with a very dry finish.

The taste is gently bitter with moderate yeast flavor and slight coffee elements which are roasty but the yeast overwhelms and there is a slightly off putting mineral element that increases with light vegetal note that is not very pleasant almost like cooked cabbage. Overall I liked certain things about this and it is not terrible, but the smell and slight off flavor made this one I would probably avoid if possible.

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
