Served on-tap into a 12 oz tulip - sour coffee? Absolutely gross, please everyone needs to stop doing this.

A nitro offering at the source. The brew appears dark brown with clarity noted around the edges. A rich creamy film of off-white rests atop with retaining power only ever seen via a nitro delivery. The cap lasts down the the last sip.

The atoma is straight fresh roasty citrus-like coffee beans. There is a solid roasted element to the nose but it seemingly comes feom nothing but the espresso/coffee inclusion. While I found the nose to be really enjoyable I almost have to fault this for smelling too much like coffee and nothing else.

The flavor is all coffee initially with roast and espresso-like freshness. While the coffee inclusion is bold, it doesnt totally dominate the profile. Also present are some flavors of wheat and a hint off lemon tartness typical of some saison yeast strains. Minor alcohol tinges emerge with some warmth as the experience continues along with some accenting fruity aspects.

This is a medium to full bodied brew that has a very smooth and creamy feel that is enjoyable. My only gripe is that the coffee dominated the nose leaving no room to smell anything else. Also, while the flavor isnt dominated by the coffee, it clashes a bit with the base brew. I think this dark saison could have worked better possibly without the coffee.

First had: on nitro at their brewpub

Labeled as a "farmhouse coffee stout."

For a nitro beer, this didn't have that classic creamy/cascading look to it. Dark brown-black pour with a small wispy white head; minimal retention and lacing. Roasty aroma, dark malts and coffee beans. More of the same in the taste, roasty dark malts, smooth coffee, with the whole thing lightened by the saison yeast, imparting light herbal and earthy qualities. A mild tea-like astringency in there as well. About medium in body, a bit thin for a stout, and especially for a beer supposedly on nitro. Not bad, but nothing really memorable.

Pours jet black with a tan head. In the aroma, sweet coffee and a small astringency. In the taste, big coffee flavors and a sweet sugar like presence. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry coffee like aftertaste. A bit astringent, but nice.

Contrary to description, this is a Belgian Farmhouse Stout w Coffee. Mildly tart, crisp & clean w a strong coffee presence. Great nose. Very unique beer, other Belgian style coffee stouts?
