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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of roastiness, yeast, a smoked hint, some overripe fruits and a bit of coffee.

crossovert (11344) - Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Thin and watery, not much smoke, not much spice, not much hoppiness. Not sure what they were going for.

daknole (10859) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Dark brown pour at Papago. I really enjoy the play of the hops, smoke and saison yeasty goodness! The hops hit first, then a nutty, yeasty flavor followed by some really well integrated smoke. Good stuff.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and dark with a small, fizzy, off-white head. This smells like a misguided pairing of caramel and beef jerkey. Medium to full-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. This tastes a lot like beef jerkey as well... with some herbal notes. Crisp, deeply-roasted finish.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. Pours a deep brown appearance with a small, cream colored head. Minty spicy, a bit woody smoky, lightly peppery aroma. Burnt chocolate malty, sprucey, slight smoky/tar, light black peppery flavor. Kind of interesting but not my favorite.

rosenbergh (10348) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2013
330 ml bottle. Rotterdam, Helsinki, Finland. Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small creamy off-white head. Brown ale aroma with malt, mild caramel sweetness, soy sauce and mild hoppiness. The flavour is roasted malt, dry stout elements and dry liquorice. There's nothing Saison in this, black it is and it's mildly smoked. So Black Smoked Saison is as far as it is as a beer style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Dark, malty for a saison. Still herbal with a little barnyard and a little smoke. Obviously well made and unique, wish I could get this kind a thing regularly. "
