AROMA: The initial perception in this beer is that of fruits - especially raisins. It has an herbal component from the Rosemary as well. The beer manifests much of the dark malts that are in the beer as well as some of the yeast phenols from the Saison Style yeast at work.
TASTE: There are lots of ingredients playing well here. First we blacken raisins making their presence felt. This is followed by some dark malt caramel sweetness and a drying presence from the chocolate and more roasted malts. The Rosemary is subtle but not under valued in its presence.
