Saison Noire

On tap, Deep Ellum, Boston, MA, USA.
What a great beer. Poured into a large snifter, the beer comes out almost completely black. Nice full head, lace and general appearance. Looks robust.
I get plenty of licorice and aniseed. Tasty mild funk too (to give a nod to the Saison moniker), but it is muted and light in terms of presence.
Good body, and a beer that feels authentic to me. Malty.
I really enjoyed this very much, and the idea of mixing the darker malt base into this style really pulls off a tasty and intriguing beer. A dark Saison – I like it!
