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.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, char, cocoa, earth, and coffee ground aromas. Taste is much the same with burnt cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting base beer to go along with the coffee addition.

22oz bottle. Crazy, dancing and buzzed in two different ways, er 'coffee cup dude' amusingly depicted on the label, and I just got the meaning of the lack of a comma in the name.

This beer pours a solid black, with some loose basal cola highlights, and one finger of bubbly, weakly foamy, and kind of soapy beige head, which leaves a few minor instances of coral reef lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of bitter, medium roast coffee, a weirdly distinct further gritty char, caramel and grainy wheat malt, subtle earthy yeast, baker's chocolate, and mild bruised banana. The taste is more well-creamed coffee, bittersweet cocoa, mixed-up caramel and wheat malt, banana pudding cups, ethereally peppery yeast, a tame oily nuttiness, and the barest hint of cold, steely alcohol, er, warming?

The bubbles are more or less easygoing in their no-nonsense frothiness, the body a sturdy medium weight, generally smooth, with a burgeoning creaminess as it warms. It finishes on the sweet side, the creamy nature of the coffee colliding with the unfortunately underappreciated maltiness, the other lesser players still just that.

An interesting take on more than a few base styles, and what mashing them together might look like. I'm getting much more of a coffee porter, with a bit of Belgian yeast tossed in for shits and giggles, than what I imagine a 'Coffee Imperial Black Saison' to be. At any rate, this is tasty enough, the coffee and chocolate character much more prominent than anything from the confounding complexity of the saison world.

Very dark and thick pour. Almost black, just some shades of brown at the edges. The head holds the beer from a higher score. Brown bubbles form, but there's no retention whatsoever. Each movement of the glass brings about more bubbles, but again, they're immediately gone.

I like the scent of dark malts, chocolate, and coffee. Very malty with the hops completely muted.

For someone who doesn't drink coffee, I still love the taste of it in a dark beer. This is no exception. Smokey, bittersweet chocolatey, coffee.

A split second of sweet followed by smoke and bittersweet before giving way to bitter. Caramels malts do their best to provide sweet to temper the bitter, but the bitter overwhelms for a pleasing mostly bitter finish. Medium bodied and bittersweet defined in liquid form.

Overall, this is a really good beer. You can really taste the coffee. The ABV is high enough to let you know it's a beer but subtle enough that you can enjoy it.

Bottle opened on 4.16.14

A - Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that fades to the edges slowly.

S - Lots of coffee and roasted malts.

T - Nice coffee and a sweet malt finish. Solid, with a nice after taste.

D - Good carbonation with a medium to light body.

O - Coffee saison and it works for me. Enought sweetness to balance the coffee.

22 oz bottle. Pours pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is roast coffee, with some sweet chocolate with a little underlying Belgian yeast.

The flavor is sweet malts, Belgian yeast, chocolate and roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, interesting - tastes like a dark Belgian strong ale with coffee and chocolate.
