The None More Black was a very good black saison. The beer poured an nearly opaque black with white head that left some lace. The scent carried burnt corn and roast. The taste had peat like nuiances with pine and slight citrus backdrop. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this was a very tasty beer and I highly recommend it.

Not sure why someone would load so much weight and heaviness into an asscrack of summer beer. But here it is, and it has the volume turned up to 11, so whatever balance there is is positively brickwalled. This is my least liked effort from Solemn Oath. There's a smell of tar on the nose that kind of follows into the grain billing with an abiding bitterness that sort of finishes in a cherry-ish smoke. A slight tanginess is apparent as well. But, if there's supposed to be any form of farmhouse / saison zest or life in this beer. What's upfront where it feels charred and burnt and has the smell of road construction is certain to destroy it. One of those beers where the empty glass smells more attractive than the filled one and it smells a bit more like stout and notes of a darker pipe, or even chewing tobacco come up.
With a second pour, I get hints of plum, and sort of a sour cherry in addition to the smell of tar. The beer is still a bit of a mess. There's certainly room for improvement in enabling the yeast to make the grain bill shine, and I hope that future batches address them.

Served in a Flying Dog glass at Bad Apple.

This thing was described as a black IPA (yeah, I said it) fermented with a saison yeast. Right on. It pours a deep sienna-highlighted black-brown topped by two fingers of light tan foam. The nose comprises mild-ish roasted malts, light dark chocolate, light green apple, greens, and a touch of saison-y funk. The taste holds notes of leek, light roasted malts, coffee, greens, light green apple skin, wheat, and a hint of cucumber. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I can't say I enjoyed this beer all that much. The hoppy pieces clashed with the roasted ones far too often, creating flavor combinations that just didn't do too well on my tongue.
