COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When two gypsies team up with an arrogant bastard, there is bound to be some criminal activity...better to view this project as a conspiracy rather than a collaboration. The strengths of all involved were utilized to break the laws of style guidelines...dark with deception, mysteriously smoked, unexplainably dry, and intriguingly hoppy...maybe it’s best not to even talk about it.

Pours a very deep dark color. Nose is heavy malt and chocolate with some spice. Taste is full of malt, with sweetness and smokiness.....with a myriad of spices. Finish is bitter and lingers with the same complex flavors and spices. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours black with a brown head and slight tart and roasty aroma of fruits and spices. Taste is sweet and smokey, lots of roasted malt, chocolate, fruit notes, and spices with a bitter, spicy finish. Very enjoyable, flavorful brew

jmohno (1458) - Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Black but almost a very deep dark brown.Red hue.Short head quickly disapated,slight lace. Complex nose of dark fruit,strong pepper,anise,bannana,clove,light mineral malts. Taste is full body,peppery,zesty,tangy,chocolate,anise,dark roasted cherrie,plum,more pepper,bittersweet finish with cocoa/pine/grapefruit,dry smooth mellow roast finish. Good hearty robust bitterness. Kind of all over the place but confusing you with a good tasting beer at the same time.Didnt pick up much smoked but more of a woody cherry,it cold be buried in the complexity somwhere but hidden.

wedgie9 (2576) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Tasted on 5/8/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours clear cola brown with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average, even lace. The nose is spicy Saison yeast with a touch of marshmallow, and plenty of dark roast with a hint of green hops. The flavor is more focused on the citrus hops and Saison yeast up front, moving to the interesting marshmallow thing, with the roasted coffee on the back of the palate. The body is on the lighter side of medium with lively carbonation and a long spicy yeast and roasted bitter finish.

BrewBoxer (2527) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at the beer authority NYC. Deep black almost pitch black. Didn't expect it to be a dark one. Very easy drinking nonetheless. Great interpretation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (5460) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a violet and ruby tint and a thinnish, half a centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, hay, soy sauce and some meat - not so good. Light to Medium-bodied; Odd taste up front of roasted malt then raisins then a thin grassy flavour and almost no final flavours except mushrooms and earth. Aftertaste is lacking with a little alcohol, some minor roasted malts and a hint of yeast complexity. Overall, a beer that is poor in execution and not really true to the name/made-up-style. If no names were on this bottle, i’m sure the rating wouldn’t be half as good as it is. Quite simply, this beer doesn’t deliver and if I’d do it again, I surely wouldn’t spend US$4.25 on this bottle. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$4.25, sampled at home in Washington on 05-May-2013.
