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.

Tastes like someone scraped the char off of a grill after making lemon crusted tilapia and then threw it in a bottle of Budweiser. No.

It’s a Stone beer. I don’t detect any other brewer input in this. I don’t believe I will ever try another smoked beer again. Tastes a lot like a sour Oaked Bastard. A beer I am not a fan of. This needs to be barreled.

From bottle. Light chocolate malt. Smoky notes and light acidity, hint of wheat. Dark brown clear with thin light tan lacing head. Medium body and medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet and roast, bitter chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Light carbonic tang. Light smoky flavor, not overbearing.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, chocolate, nuts. Flavors floral, tart, smoke, cocoa, some yeasty character.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - JUN 5, 2013
A very dark brown with a light brown head. The color is deceptive because it is a bright saison. The malty color implies a good body but it is a bit light. Interesting though.

Dark brown to black in color with a nice medium tan head that disapates quick. Aroma is lite and a little boring. But the flavors is a different story. One of the best smoked beer out there.bitter yet soft with just enough hops and smoke to be great. Hops up front smoke in the middle with a finsh that is clean but still is present and leaves you wanting more.

onceblind (3934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Black pour with a thin light beige foamy head. Nice aroma of dark sweet roastiness, farm funk, hay, dusty belgian citrus, and an overall tone that sorta reminds me of breakfast sausage. Flavor is a bit more estery and dusty than the nose. Lots of saison yeasty pepperiness with dark roastiness and a little smoke, some light funky belgian orange rind and wheaty hay flavors, and a dry semi-sweet dusty peppery finish. Pretty swell.

illidurit (2115) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
On tap at Taps. Pours dark ruby with a persistent brown head. Mildly smokey aroma with a touch of chocolate. Flavor has a chocolate tinge as well, which actually ends up coming through more than any smokiness. The chocolate is pretty hollow though, like it’s a byproduct of making the beer as dark as it is. I get a little chili pepper on the back end. Not recognizable as a saison.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Dark red/brown pour with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, lemon, and a light smoke. Taste is lemon, roasted malt and the smoke, which comes out at the end. Roasted malt aftertaste. OK lacing.

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
pours a deep dark reddish brownish black with a thin tan head. aroma is smoke, yeast, floral hops and roasted grain. flavor is light smoke and surprisingly bitter. this is my first saison, so I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be tasting, but I like this beer.
