4.6/5 rDev +45.6%
This brew pours black in color with a two finger tan head which lasts for several minuets. Moderate carbonation and medium to high lacing which stays on the glass until the end.
The smell is fruity, nutty and earthy. Heavy with roasted and sweet malts. Some chocolate and maybe brown sugar.
The taste follows the nose with sweet and then roasted malts dominating. There is a bitter element, similar to coffee. Fruits and nuts come in in the middle then light spiced hops appear on the back end. All very well balanced.
The mouthfeel is thin and creamy; very drinkable. Some, not much, bitterness left in the mouth after swallowing.
Overall this a very well balanced beer. A little different than your usual Saison due to it being dark with very thick roasted/burnt malts. It is an interesting mix from Magic Hat; I would buy it again.

A-pours a dark coca cola color with a foamy tan head with excellent retention
S-roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate, some spicy yeast trying to squeeze through
T-more chocolate and coffee that is deliciously toasted and roasted leaving a flavorful background for the yeast to shine through in the finish
M-medium bodied, very sessionable
O-I thought this was a pretty kick ass brew. I havent had many dark saisons that work but I thought this still packed plenty of flavor while stay maintaining the key components of a classic saison.
