12 oz. bottle with an illegible date printed on the bottle. It is a 2013 Fall seasonal release, so it is reasonably fresh. Consumed on: December 11, 2013.

A- Rather opaque, black body with a big fluffy, tan head that dies down to a film after one commercial break.

S- Some roasty malts are present along with some yeast aromas. Also, some esters are in there giving off some dark stone fruit and a surprising but not bad olive like aroma.

T- Really spicy first sip. Black peppercorn and some aromatic clove. Also has prominently featured roasty, chocolate flavors. Some spicy, grassy hops follow suit. It also has some esters and some citric, acidic almost salty flavors trying to come through.

M- Light to mid body with a fine carbonation that is on the lower side for the style.

O- A decent attempt at a twist on the classic saison style and one of my favorite beers by a brewery I'm not fond of. An easy to drink, and not boring beer to session. However, for my taste, there isn't enough saison in this black saison. If I had paid the full $17.99 for 12 price tag, I would have been less than satisfied. Thankfully, I got the 12 pack for $7.50 at Oliver's in Albany, NY.
