A: Poured from the bomber into aDuvel tulip glass. Body is black with a 2-finger milkshake-colored, fairly dense head - looks more like a stout or American porter than anything. Good rings of lace.

S: Florally, perfumey hops over a touch of coffee beans and chocolate. Hint of spice.

T: Spice shows up more prominently in the taste. Malty stuff is there too: slightly burnt toast and char, a touch of dark chocolate or bakers chocolate and molasses. Finishes dry, with a lingering taste of char and bitter, roasted coffee beans. Also some spice towards the back end that I'm having a hard time pinning down - maybe ginger? For some reason "wood" comes to mind. . . . Overall this one drinks like a cross between a porter and a saison.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is active but non-obtrusive .

O: Good stuff. An interesting collaboration beer that actually seems like a collaboration - i.e., a blending of different styles into something new and unique, marrying elements from both brewers. Here, I get San Diego and Belgium. Neat.

A - A dark brown/black with zero clarity. Lots of tan head and sticky lace left all over the glass all the way down

S - Mild barnyard funk, dried fruit and berries

T - Wow, all sorts of things going on in the taste. Nutmeg, berries, cocoa, smokiness, belgian funk, with

M - Well carbonated and somehow, with all thats going on in it, well balanced.

O - Never had one like this before. Lots of flavors and funkiness, but somehow it works. Well done!

A: This poured an opaque black with fluffy tan head.
S: It smelled like allspice and clove, with some pumpkin bread and grassy hops and horse blanket.
T: It tasted like grassy hops and allspice and pumpkin bread, with some clove and copper and horse blanket. It had a clean and funky and earthy aftertaste.
M: It was fairly thick with lots of carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a nice spicy beer, perfect for the holidays. The scent and taste were complex and enjoyable, and the body was fitting. The finish was smooth too, so it was easy to drink. Nice unique brew (surprisingly better than the black saison collaboration with Stone, Evil Twin, and Stillwater).
