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.

Pours out almost black with a big tan head. Aroma is of smoked malts, light dark dried fruits, some yeasty/earthy Saison notes, roast and a decent amount of hop bitterness coming through. Taste is much like the aroma; lots going on. Complex smoked malts, chocolate, light roast, dried dark fruits, light pepper, some earth, yeast and a solid punch of hop bitterness throughout that becomes more apparent in the finish. Well done!

12 oz bottle purchased from New England Wine & Spirits. Poured nice & dark into a mini snifter. Nice light brown head & earthy nose. Fruity ester turns into clove & subtle malt flavor. Finishes a bit dry with a charred flavor that hangs.

Really nice collabo. Aroma is toffee, toasted grains. Taste is hint of coffee, caramel, and grain. Its clean bland and straightforward but nice. Its kind of a doesnt do anything well but really is good in all categories.

Lukaduke (1744) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a deep umber mahogany color with a three finger eggshell head that laces and sticks for the beers longevity. On the nose the aromas are restrained but nice traces of dark earthy malt, peppery cola, citrus and smoke. The palate follows the nose with a nice complexity and balance. Ripe dark fruit, yeasty spice, citrus hops and smoked malt. Nice dry finish.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle from Marczyk. Pours a lovely ebony with a dense tan head. Aroma is complex with cheese, smoke, bubblegum, papery hops. The palate is very creamy. The yeast is potent in the flavor, about as intense as it can get without being unpleasant. Strong spiced notes are in the flavor and plenty of bubblegum. The finish calms things down with chocolate and smoke. This is very different and complex. I like it.

12oz bottle: pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Has a lightly sweet dark malty nose with good smoke character and some resiny hops along with a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and toasted malty sweetness with some coffee undertones and fresh smoke drying out slightly before a lingering bittersweet finish. Unique and enjoyable.

BEENJAMIN (286) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Assuming that this is Stillwaters yeast I let the bottle warm up before I poured it. Pours a deep brownish mahogany with a tan head. A compelling aroma of herbs, blueberries, a slight smokiness, and lavender impresses. The Slightly tart fruit flavor ends with a sweet and savory note. Very complex brew, I will for sure buy this one again.

12oz bottle pours dark brown with some deep ruby red colored hues and a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is full and offers up a mix of lime, funky yeast and soured molding grapefruit. Interesting taste where modest roasted malts and maltiness meet lime and grapefruit and a bit of moldy funk. This creates a fairly pleasing combination of flavors for me.
