Imperial black saison, enjoyed at Mondiale 2013. Something weird and interesting. Getting chocolate, sage,carrot, dill, yeast. Very unique and weird. A little funky, very weird.Black with orange peel,cloves, lemon, roast,rice, but not a blackbier. Quaffable...once.

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?
