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.

February 2013. Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Lemon aromas with spice and dark malts. Very unique and creative brew that have the proper carbonation, complexity and balance.

I always enjoy trying a unique beer and this was certainly of that ilk. Subtle smoke, a bit peppery, surprising hop note, light mouth feel, black in color, with think khaki head.

Alphadelic (1761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2013
A lightly sweet and milky aroma with more than a dash of smoke to it. An insanely wonderful texture, thick and smooth, a long smoky burst, a little more sweet malt and then a light roasty bitterness with plenty of spicy yeast in the finish.

Butters (3846) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Clear dark plum color almost cola with ring of light tan head. Fair lightly smokey/hammy notes with a dark roastiness that comes forward at the tail end of the flavor. Interesting marshmellow note in there also. Don’t get the ’saison’ness all that much, but maybe it’s just hidden. Enjoyed this quite a bit, but not something i would feel the need to seek out again.

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.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2013
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.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, chocolate, nuts. Flavors floral, tart, smoke, cocoa, some yeasty character.

redpooba (401) - 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.
