16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours dark brown/black with a couple inch frothy tan head that stayed around for a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Interesting aroma, the brew smells like roasted malt, tropical fruit, brett, blackberries, and a bit of citrus. It's nice fruity and roasty aroma. The taste is interesting too, it tastes like roasted malt, peppery spice, bittersweet chocolate, citrus zest, tropical fruit, pine, berries and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit oily and is well carbonated. This is a beer that I liked more and more the longer I drank it. I guess I'll have to try more black farmhouse ale/saisons! I'd like to get another bottle at some point, it's definitely worth a try. $9.99 a bottle.

4.21/5 rDev +11.7%

16 oz bottle. Don't see a date on the bottle. This is probably the first black farmhouse ale I've tried, and certainly the first that I have reviewed.
A: Pours an ample, light brown head with lots of small-lacing bubbles. The head dissipates very, very slowly. The beer is extremely dark, and blocks all, or almost all, of the light from getting through.
S: Brett! With this first sniff, I realize that "funky" is an apt name. Certainly, citrus from the Galaxy hops and chocolate as well.
T: A combination of citrus-y hops, pepper, chocolate, along with the tangy acid of the brett. Alcohol is somewhat disguised.
M: Finish combines hop bitterness and dry cocoa powder. Creamier than what you would expect for a saison, but it's not a bad thing here.
O: A unique beer and definitely worth trying. Glad I picked one up.
