Although offering a little taste of winter, I’m really not sure how much of a Saison this really is and being an Imperial Black one at that just creates that much more confusion. It tastes somewhere between a Dubbel and a Belgian Stout, while the 8.3% ABV flaunts some warmth but stays quaffable. I would love to see more Belgians from Ore Dock. Saison D’Hiver is a real lollapalooza of a Belgian-inspired brew.

Had this Saison off the Taproom Tap poured into a fluted style pint glass.

A- Near black body with a slight reddish mud tinge that poured a small one finger head that quickly dissipated to a etched lacing.

S- Black Cherry front with raisin, bitter chocolate and success

T-Very complex, dried cherries and other indiscernible fruit, slight taste of dates, white pepper and resin. Finishes with a bubble gum draw

M-Very smooth, almost fizzy like carbonation that adds to the appeal, ends dry and balanced
