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.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
12 oz bottle from Total Wine in Tucson, Arizona, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a small tan head that fades quickly to a thin remnant and leaves a minimal amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of roasted malts, smoke, pepper, grass, wheat and spice. The begins dry, with roasted malt notes, and becomes more so, with lots of spice and notes of citrus, flowers and pepper. A distinct roastiness with subtle smoke persists throughout. The finish is long, roasty and herby with a moderate hoppy bitterness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting brew; it elegantly pairs up dark, roasted malts with saison spice. Very well done. 2012-12-29

maekchu (2667) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods El Segundo. Sugary, yeasty aroma, with a slight bit of funkiness. Dark brown with a thick creamy head. Quite balanced between the saison and the black. Some smoke, yes. Good bitterness in final. Medium body. The smoke and the saison character tend to cancel each other. Okay.

tomciccateri (1032) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12-ounce brown bottle. Pours an opaque black with lasting, frothy , fine-bubble tan head. Smokey aroma with confounding complexities. Full body, rich texture mouthfeel. Even dry/sweet dark malt flavor balance. Late Belgian yeast character. Slight coffee notes. Hint of roastiness. Uncategorizable. OKAY.

JStax (3663) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a dense black with a lighter khaki colored head of foam. Good Retention. Difficult to pick up much in the way of aroma, but I do pick up on some grassy and resinous hop profile. In the taste I get that grassy bitterness alongside a fruity sweetness. The smoke seems to have disappeared from this beer as it is pretty much undetectable. This isn’t a bad beer at all, it’s just not quite what I expected of it.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - FEB 19, 2013
Rather simple and straight forward considering the 3 involved. Very soft chocolate malt and hint of smoke on the nose. Simple malt grain flavours, with some slight smokiness and a it of hops on the back end. Missing any kind of quality to stand out from the pack.

trevor211 (1408) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours black, with a pinkish tan head. This is an interesting one. Three separate flavors, all mild, combine in a nice balance. There’s the bittersweet roasted malts that give this brew its color, just a bit of smoke (they kept it subtle), and a crisp hoppy yeastiness that indicates a farmhouse style. After the other flavors fade, the faint smokiness remains, which is nice. Mild flavor, even milder aroma... not at all bad.

Bottle. Dark espresso pour with a creamy tan head. Acidic, coffee bean, raisin, apricot, cola, lead. Easy to drink light to medium body with slight tannin like bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Dark, dirty brown with thin creamy-tan head. Aroma is a farmy sap-citrus fusion. fruity juicy-fruit yeast notes. Flavor is more juicy-fruit citrus hops. Incredibly well brewed; I’m ecstatic!!! Medium body; the best session I’ve had in the better part of a year.
