It didn't lie, it was too much coffee... The styles did not work in my opinion.

This one didn't work for me. Too much coffee. Smells like coffee and the flavor is dominated by that. The back end with the black ale added a weirdness to it. Overall was not a fan.

Can’t tell that this is an ale – tastes like iced coffee. That’s OK in itself but why should I drink a beer I can’t taste when I can buy an iced coffee at Micky D. and add some vodka or absolute alcohol to get the same flavor?

this one is a mix of styles that never really gels or gets resolved, and the overall beer here is not all the way appealing. medium dark brown with a short tan head, the nose here is bitter leftover drip coffee and a funny saison yeast thats fruity esters are not congruent with the intese earthiness of the java. the flavor is mostly coffee up front, with a really thin wheat malt base that carries a little bitterness of its own. i just dont think the yeast here works with the coffee, not that it couldnt, but ive never had a coffee saison before that was too good. the body seems a little thin, and while its not funky, there is a real tickly spice to the yeast too, which again, is strikingly out of place with the bitterness of the coffee. i guess i like it because its different, but i would never buy this one.

Reviewed from notes. Twenty-two ounce bottle.

A: Pours black with dark brown and reddish highlights under a 1/4" mocha head which fades to the rim and leaves spots of lace.

N: Roasted fresh-pressed coffee, nutty, fruity, vanilla notes.

T: Grainy, faint Saison yeast, mellow coffee with a slight roast.

M: Semi-full body and semi-medium carbonation. Roast coffee finish.

O: Not a lot of farmhouse since the coffee overpowers the yeast. Enjoyed.
