Served in a Flying Dog glass at Bad Apple.

This thing was described as a black IPA (yeah, I said it) fermented with a saison yeast. Right on. It pours a deep sienna-highlighted black-brown topped by two fingers of light tan foam. The nose comprises mild-ish roasted malts, light dark chocolate, light green apple, greens, and a touch of saison-y funk. The taste holds notes of leek, light roasted malts, coffee, greens, light green apple skin, wheat, and a hint of cucumber. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I can't say I enjoyed this beer all that much. The hoppy pieces clashed with the roasted ones far too often, creating flavor combinations that just didn't do too well on my tongue.

The None More Black was a very good black saison. The beer poured an nearly opaque black with white head that left some lace. The scent carried burnt corn and roast. The taste had peat like nuiances with pine and slight citrus backdrop. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this was a very tasty beer and I highly recommend it.
