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.

thooper41 (548) - BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2013
12 oz bottle: Appearance is deep dark brown with minimal light town head. Aroma is of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, tastes like a basic porter with no notes of a saison.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle - Pours a clear brown color with a one finger thick light tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is esters, yeast, and floral hops. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, pine and herbal hops, esters, and light yeast. The finish is dry and has a good dose of hop bitterness. Medium body. A nice beer, but where’s the smoke?

luttonm (2223) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 5, 2013
12oz bottle in Seattle. Very interesting project, strange style but it seems to work alright. Pretty pour, deep slightly funky malts, sweetness, peat. Medium body, black saison style all the way, some wet smoked fish/meat flavors in the back. Doesn’t get better as it warms, but tasty and smart. Balanced beer, maybe not exactly a style to aim for though. Worth a taste.

These hybrids are getting out of control. Nothing like a saison, not even a hint, but what did expect? More like a light porter.

kidmartinek (3674) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Dark brown with a foamy dense tan head. Fruity musty yeasty and tart aroma. Flavor is like a beer suicide. Chocolate, sourness, wild yeasty notes and an insane bitterness all wrapped up in one with a touch of dark fruit. The end.

ddemmingjr (705) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from Chuck's: pours blackish brown, dense tan head that persists. Stillwater yeast, fruitiness, smoked malts and hints of anise on the nose. Coffee bitterness, anise and fairly dry on the finish. This is a smoked Saison that holds up pretty well but I hoped for a little bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
