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.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Appearance: Pours a amber hued dark brown with a white pinstripe.

Aroma: Low tide at the shore. Tripel yeast, camp fire.

Taste: Spicy dry belgian yeast, firm euro hop spice finishes woody.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied modest carbonation.

Overall: I wasn’t that excited to try this. Judging the book by it’s cover, this didn’t sound like a beer I’d dig. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did enjoy this beer. Stone seems to have a good grip on Saisons, even though this is far from a typical Saison. I’d be curious to see what kind of barrels Stone tries to age this beer in, I’d probably go with a red wine barrel or a smokey Scotch whiskey barrel.

Pours a very deep dark color. Nose is heavy malt and chocolate with some spice. Taste is full of malt, with sweetness and smokiness.....with a myriad of spices. Finish is bitter and lingers with the same complex flavors and spices. Quaff Score 7 / 10

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.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours black with a small head for the style. Smell is smoke, yeast funk, black currant, bit of spice, and some candy sweet smell. Medium mouthfeel and flat for a saison. Fruity flavor, spice, not a lot of smoke. A little funky with some oaky taste and a strange musty bitterness. Finishes dry. Pretty unique, but not blown away by this. Not a bad beer, but not one I would order again.

mcox90 (1718) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours an opaque mahogany with a one finger khaki head. Little bit of thin,weak lace. Light smoke on the aroma with Belgian yeast, hint of bubblegum & grass. Earthy smelling. Lots of roasted malt flavor. Some dark fruit taste with a pretty substantial hop bite on the back end. Light bodied with ample carbonation. Easy to drink. Interesting brew.

Pours black with a brown head and slight tart and roasty aroma of fruits and spices. Taste is sweet and smokey, lots of roasted malt, chocolate, fruit notes, and spices with a bitter, spicy finish. Very enjoyable, flavorful brew

jcos (1710) - Maryland, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on February 10th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours dark black with light brown head.
Aroma: Aroma of spice and faint smoke.
Taste: Medium light bitterness, spice, some faint smoke that lingerings.
Palate:Light body, some fizz, lingering aftertaste of smoke.

Summary: Definitely an interesting beer. I am a fan of smoked beers, although for some reason this one is just okay in that department. Overall it’s a solid saison, although I guess I expect more when Stone and Stillwater are involved.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, 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.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a lazy Saturday afternoon while doing some errands. Appearance is a moderate, pitch black with a thin white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, light yeast, also a touch of roasted malt. Taste is pretty good, definite smoke presence with a light yeast flavor, also a very light touch of fruit and hops. I don’t know how to classify this one, doesn’t really taste like a saison to me. Still pretty good.
