Had on tap at the Solemn Oath beer dinner at Wild Monk in LaGrange. Served in a snifter.
A: Pours a solid black color with some dark brown edges. A dirty, light khaki head forms on the pour and recedes to a small ring. Soapy lace if left down the glass.
S: Green hops with some bittering pine. Mild roast with a light coffee bean note as well. The yeast starts to kick in on the finish with some peppery nuances and fruity esters.
T: Unfortunately the taste didn't live up to the balance of the nose. The piney hops were still present, but the roasted malts really took a back seat to the yeast. The yeast dominated with some peppery notes and actually some mild soapy notes as well.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet, yeasty, soapy finish.
O: It was definitely an interesting take on the style, but unfortunately the yeasty component turned into some off/soapy flavors. This keg was a few months old and the SO guys sat on it to let the yeast develop a little more. I think this beer would have been best served fresh.

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.
