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.

360mL bottle to flute Yeasty with candied fruits and alcohol. Deep amber with a thin off white head. The taste is slightly sweet and butter. Palate is medium bodied and silky. Due to the aroma, I was expecting it to like a quad, but this is reminiscent if a red ale.

Bottle from Bevmo arrogant bitches. Dark brown reddish tint pour with off white head. Aroma is fruity Belgian yeast some spice, cooked dark fruits. Taste is initially fruity followed by slight roast/smoke with a ton of hops. Like an IPA mixed with a porter and a saison. Very interesting style but I enjoy it!!

The pour is a rusty, deep garnet with a creamy, pillowy, pale tan, moderate head which settles to a thin froth and leaves similar lace. The nose is a bit scattered but still very pleasant; lighter fruit (passionfruit, blood orange), leather, faint smoke, cocoa, some light roast, some floral, and molasses. The flavor is more smoked with light campfire, very earthy roast, still leathery, some caramel underneath, still floral, and orangey. The palate is lively, less than medium, very dry, and somewhat coating. The finish is long and dry with leather, smoke, earthy roast, and faint orange. The smoke and roast matched nice leather and bitterness, but the fruity esters really held the beer together. Truly something different and smoke beers are not my thing, but this was nice.

Completely unique beer in my experience. Has the dry grassiness of a saison as well as smoke and roast. Body is much lighter than you would expect from those flavors. Dry finish.

Light brown head is thin and short, dark brown/black. Light arome has licorice, coffee, caramel, ash, slightly roasted. Crisp round, bitter, dry, highly roasted nearly burned, long roastrd bitter finish, berry also. Tasty but quite much roasted. Would not drink many of these.

Bule (1075) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a dark black color with a bit of head. Tastes like a mild saison with some hop flavors. Very intriguing and enjoyable.

dlovell2 (1073) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2014
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Dark brown with tan head. Smoky, roasted malt, brown sugar aroma. Sweet roasted malt start followed with some tartness with slight dark chocolate and smoke notes finished with some citrus hops flavors in finish.

dresden (1066) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours like a cola with a foamy tan head. Light smoke aroma, some citrus. Hoppy flavour, really lacking a great saison yeast taste, some coffe flavours. Hmmm fine beer, but I’m not tasting what they’re selling.

I actually had this one from a bottle pour into an empty soda cup at a Del Taco... had to drink before getting to the airport

Mmm, nah. Like a porter blended with a light sour. I would have preferred them to be separated, or at least reworked. It’s not a crime. It shouldn’t be discouraged though. Maybe I’m not ready for this: Haute...
