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.

On tap at Blue monk. Dark Brown nearly black pour with a light brown creme head. Smells a bit hoppy, a bit Smokey, some dark malts. Tastes a bit soapy up front from the hops. Mild bitterness, some mild roast/smoke. Not bad.

SlovakSniper (3093) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Une bière ténébreuse sur laquelle flotte une feuille de mousse. Un nez qui s’articule autour des grains rôtis : je sens des parfums de pain noir et des notes très fines de fumée et de bois. Je cherche en vain la présence de la levure qui fait le style. Il y a quelque chose de floral qui flotte dans l’air. Le goût permet de mieux cerner les houblons. Une petite résine et des fruits jaunes viennent se coller aux saveurs chocolatées, caramélisées et légèrement fumées. Encore une fois la levure a une queue bien glissante. En bouche, le liquide présente un corps moyen-faible avec une présence modérée des bulles et une texture passablement huileuse. La finale permet une avancée amère des houblons et des grains rôtis. Une bière plus ou moins intéressante qui reste cependant facile à boire.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #311. Dense dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasty with a little fruit. Light roast and pretty bitter from that roast, lingering aftertaste. (2754)

Draft at blue monk. Darker cola looking pour. Light fruit and roast in aroma. Somewhat bitter, roast flavor. Ok

rob6239 (621) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Pours dark chocolate colour with foamed tan head. Aroma has chocolate, smoke, and some doughy earthiness. Taste was sharp and begins with cocoa and smokiness but gives way to banana and coriander at the end.

Very nice balance of flavour and drinkability. Darker than anticipated. Relatively thin body. Significant smokey wheat flavour. Very nice

solidfunk (3872) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Another odd beer. Is gunsmoke the perfect crime? Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Light smokiness with burnt, bitter finish. Average carbonation. Some oak here as well. A little hay or grass in aroma. On tap at Blue Monk.

From bottle. Black in color. Aroma is definitely saison, with nice floral and yeast notes. Flavor is decidedly smoked, with the saison hidden beneath. Not as smokey as a rauchbier, but close. Finishes slightly bitter.
