Pours a clear deep brown bordering on black producing a frothy, tan, somewhat lasting head that leaves splotches & streaks of lace. Aroma is cocoa, dark bread & nutty malts, smoke & a little char, a blend of yeast characters, dark fruit, wood & earthy. Taste is burnt bread, soured dark fruit, smokey roasted nuts, semisweet chocolate & woodsy/earthy hints. Peppery, bitter, lightly sour finish but quickly becomes a bitter/sour/faintly metallic finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with medium-high carbonation, grainy, lively & biting.

Not what I expected from a saison. A bit heavier. If I didn't know better, I would peg it closer to a porter.
