Pours an opaque dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Splotchy lacing left behind.

Earthy, funky aroma with resinous, oily hops, musty funk, zesty spice and a complex malt presence. Spicy anise and licorice along with grassy pine needle, pepper and roasted dark chocolate. Really weird with oak, chocolate, musty funk, earthy hops, peppery spice and roasted malt notes competing with one another.

Medium body with a slightly chalky mouthfeel and complex flavor profile. Dry and slightly musty with some farmhouse funk and prominent licorice sweetness along with peppery spice, dark roast and sweet malts. Kind of odd but has nice complexity with the galaxy hops and dark saison notes coming through.

16 oz bottle. Don't see a date on the bottle. This is probably the first black farmhouse ale I've tried, and certainly the first that I have reviewed.

A: Pours an ample, light brown head with lots of small-lacing bubbles. The head dissipates very, very slowly. The beer is extremely dark, and blocks all, or almost all, of the light from getting through.

S: Brett! With this first sniff, I realize that "funky" is an apt name. Certainly, citrus from the Galaxy hops and chocolate as well.

T: A combination of citrus-y hops, pepper, chocolate, along with the tangy acid of the brett. Alcohol is somewhat disguised.

M: Finish combines hop bitterness and dry cocoa powder. Creamier than what you would expect for a saison, but it's not a bad thing here.

O: A unique beer and definitely worth trying. Glad I picked one up.
