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.

HeadyDE (569) - Delaware, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pretty black color..active carbonation..minimal head..typical saison nose..spice present..vanilla and smoke also readily available..hard to explain since this really is an interesting brew with notes of a saison, porter..smoke and perhaps something else..mouthfeel is pretty good with the smoke winning out..not really a fan of black ipa so i think i am a bit down on this one..interesting collaboration to try..

malrubius (2071) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from Garden City. Black with lasting tan head and lace. Tart chocolate mildly smoky fruity herbal aroma. Mild fruity tart sweetness with dry herbal bitterness and lingering ashy smoke. Nice effervescent carbo. Much better than expected. Excellent.

mrmartin (741) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Black pour with creamy tan head. Hoppy nose with saison yeast notes and light roasted malts. Light delicate body. toasty malts, more hops. smokey semidry finish. basically a Rausch with some saison characteristics not bad!

alexanderj (3406) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with a smallish light brown head. Aroma of must, BO, roasted malt/smoke, earth, yeast and citrus. Flavor was solid, but perhaps not as radical as expected. Spicy and yeasty, some solid hop presence; the dark elements did not shine through in that big of a way. A solid saison.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Black body with a thick, tan head. This was an interesting beer and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Pepper and other spices, smoke, slight funk.

jhamp9 (1276) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Deep dark brown with a nice light tan head. Aroma is a little barnyard, smoke, and earthy. Taste has some funk along with smoke, yeast, and grapefruit rind. Light body.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle-pours deep brown hue with a small fizzy brown head not much to look at really. nose has almost a burnt motor oil thing going on with some cola, some yeasty twang and lite dark chocolate. flavors exhibit the smokey qualities alongside the twangy saison yeast. has a huge burnt note on the finish with lingering undertones of subtle saison tart yeast character. I would say that this is fairly well done however, it is not a home run. I dont taste either of the "collaboration" breweries in this beer at all-this is all stone. Body is somewhat flimsy and weak, which would have put this one over the top in terms of overall enjoyment and added in the flavor qualities. has a lingering burnt nutty note long into the finish and very dry. Decent.

Smokey aroma, but not too strong. Pours dark brown with thin head. Tastes very smooth with a slightly smokey finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
