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.

Pours black with a big off white head. Aroma is saison like yeast with a rye like note. Taste is standard saison with a small but prominent burst of smoke out front. Smooth body, but missing the pleasant lively carb I like in a saison. More interesting than good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reid (2095) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $3.49 Black beer with a nice tan head..lovely. Nice smokey aromas..like crispy roasted ham , a hint of saison and some light hop. Taste is more sweet grapefruit hop and a little saison dryness..the smoke for some reason is not so pleasing inn the taste as it was in the nose..more ashy. Nice juicy mouthfeel. Nice unusual beer

Dark, lightly smokey, hints of dark malt. A bit of bitterness in a hoppy way through the finish. Interesting and different.

NikkTwist (2091) - 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.

That1Guy (2090) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a clear brown with a sticky head. Very astringent at first. Once it warms, it opens up a bit. Definite Saison tendencies on the nose. Flavor is still pretty astringent, with bitter malts and smoke fighting with each other and creating a bit of a mess. Just ok.

rubbishystuff (2069) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 This was quite yummy. Very subtle smoke appeared more at the back of the sip. Slightly sour but gave a over all winey-ness. Very pleasantly surprised. Serving: bottle

bubbleflubber (2058) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours ruby-mahogany into the glass, with a decent unassuming tan head that leaves soapy window wash lacing. The nose is of dark fruits. The flavors are semi-dry, of dark berries, smoke, some light hay and barnyard accents, Crystal malt and burnt toast. The finish is a toasted bitter, with LOTS of carbon (indicative of burnt toast... spot on). The palate is extremely smooth and provides a slick, velvety quaff. Very unique for a Saison. Indeed, curious and interesting. Nice experiment here for the 3 brewers.
