90pointsSmuttlabs Nott Dark Farmhouse Ale

A fun take on a saison, which is typically light in color and derived from a non-roasted grain bill, this is a richer, heartier option, with a gorgeous brown color, attractive roasty character and pleasantly pronounced bitter-hop edge. There's typical saison-esque spice on the nose, but it's complemented by scents of cocoa nib, toasted brown bread, peanut skin, raisin and dried cherry. The medium-weight, creamy body is lifted by a subtle warmth and sweet spice character that hangs on to the finish. Don't drink this one too cold, or you'll lose some of the deeper toasted spice and dried fruit characteristics. Lauren Buzzeo
