I am now committed to reducing, if not eradicating, my backlog of bottles. This one was part of a local, in-person trade with tone77.

From the bottle: "The ancient ritual of brewing a distinctly rich and flavorful beer is a performance to behold. Our mysterious melange of time-honored ingredients harmonize with chaotic chemistry, humble patience and blind faith to create this unique beer to share in the rousing company of kindred spirits. Cheers!"; "A liquid dance through life's trance"; "a performance in every bottle".

It does not happen often that I am surprised by a beer, but the dark color of this one as it poured into the glass really caught me off-guard! It made the pseudo-cascade very visible, which in turn created two dense, rocky fingers of deep-tan head with great retention. Color was a deep-brown with mahogany highlights (SRM = > 27, < 34) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a bittersweet chocolatiness with a slight mustiness. This is a saison?!? Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was very odd (notion) - slightly chocolaty, slightly peppery, kind of musty, a little smoky. Wow! Finish was dry, but just not what I think of when I think of a Saison.
