I split this with my cousin, poured into snifter, pitch black pour, medium head, light lacing. The aroma is tart, funk, sour cherries. It taste like a sour stout, vanilla, booze. The carbonation is good, medium body, suprisingly drinkable. A very interesting beer, wish I had another.

I was lucky enough to have this side by side with the Nebula. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours a dark brown color with just a small amount of head. The nose is sweet and reminds me a bit of brown sugar. I'm also getting cherries and mild oak. The taste tart but the sweeter notes are still there. Cherries are showing up, but there is also a dark fruit note in the background. I'm also getting some oak. The sour note builds to the finish. Not sure I would have guessed Saison. The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish. I enjoyed this more than the Nebula due to the sweetness.
