Pours a dark brown colour, seems to have a reddish tinge to it, with cream-beige foamy head, sunk to a film of bubbles but nice clingy lace. Good.

Smells fairly roasty and dark, but wild with a slight sour edge. Hint of espresso, licorice and chocolate, with a dark cherry touch and maybe a hint of orange peel. Pleasant, but could use a bit more oomph to drive it home.

Taste is also dark: a little bit spicier with a touch of black pepper, star anise, all riding on a bitter chocolate wave. Fairly mild by the end with a touch of cola, nutmeg maybe, overall a little on the English, subtly bitter side. But pleasant, and pretty well-balanced, with sweet and spice in harmony.

Bit fizzy in the mouth, leaves a bit prickly and dry. Body is a bit vapid, so the bubbles are left unharnessed and they run wild.

Fairly straightforward, but nice spice notes keep me interesting.

Pours a dark brown with a thin brown head into my glass. It's supposed to be a dark saison but I can't rate the color high.

Spice, cocoa and a bit of cream are in the nose. Again, not quite what I was expecting. The label does say that it's mysterious in a sense.

Caramel, cocoa and a touch of cream represent this one. I'm not getting the saison part here. Not a bad thing. Just not to style.

Ditto on mouthfeel. It's comparable to a weak ABA with more emphasis on the malt part.

It's interesting for sure and meant to be a genre-bender. I wonder if re-categorizing it as an ABA would make more sense?
