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.

Arayaga2 (1775) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Dark, even ruby brown with a cm of tan head. Aroma is slightly burnt caramel with light phenolics. First taste is bitter chocolate with burnt, herby, lemony acridness that punches in as a totally separate note and finishes in slightly smokey sulfur. Meh. $4/12oz

chinchill (1759) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2014
At 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle,SC) Pours black and opaque, with a very good head. Flavor: very floral, a bit ’wild’, with Belgian yeast and light and medium roast malts. Medium+ strength. A bit sweet up front; clightly funky and slightly bitter aftertaste. O: interesting and moderately complex but not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Bottle at bar. Black color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, toast, pine and earthy notes. Nicely balanced body. Dry bitter finish with earthy aroma and citrus. Exquisite speciality brew.

Alphadelic (1751) - 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.

malrubius (1676) - 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.

PotjeBier (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2013

dfinney23 (1640) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Poured nearly black but didn’t seem all that smokey or saison-y. Quite bitter in a grassy/herbal way.

rbrazell (1620) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Fermentation Market. Black pour with a creamy beige head with some lacing. Nose is chocolate malts, ashy smoke, pepper, hints of yeast and some earthy hops. Restrained, uninteresting entry with notes of roasted malts, ash, smoke, peppery yeast with a spicy, earthy hop finish. Not bad and pretty interesting.

NikkTwist (1581) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle at Eulogy. Very, very dark orange brown pour with some little foamy circling galaxies. Dark Saison with some smoke. Burnt celery. Raisin pie. Cigarettes. Molasses. Rotted pears. Thyme. Smoked salmon. A sweet juicy black syrupy floral stout. Also a touch of sour and smoke. Thick palate. Hard to define. More complex than the other "Dark Saisons" I have had. Very interesting, well made and thought out. Just not sure if I really like drinking it.
