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 thanks to drew, I think. Thanks! Pours a deep brown/black with a tan head. Nose is meaty with medium smoke and subtle clove and roast. Some rose floral notes along with a tea thing. On tasting, much cleaner and better than anticipated. Smokey with some more salty meat and a balancing yeast profile from the fermentation. The roast works as well. Thought I’d hate this. Solid stuff.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Oily black pour with a thin brown head. This beer smells exactly like grilled mushrooms. Smokey, vegetal, fungal, slight pepper on the nose. Flavor is lightly smoked and peppery, but kind of thin and weird. Not very good.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2013
0.355 l bottle at Angleterre, Helsinki. Pours black. Aromas and flavors of coffeish and chocolatey roasted malts, citrus, smoke, licorice, clove, pepper and firm bitterness. Several of these elements do not pair well, quite messy brew.

Three absolutely stellar brewers, you would think, would produce something memorable. Sadly, this beer has a strangely unbalanced smokiness, is weak-bodied, with an unassertive sweetness that lingers unpleasantly.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. Served cool. Aroma: Smoky, kind of roasty, a little chocolate maybe. I want to say there’s a little herb in there too. Appearance: Almost opaque dark ruby body, light, dissipating tan head. Taste: Wow I’m going to have trouble describing this. I’m getting some tart fruit, kind of. Definitely some smoke. It is pretty dry. Pretty unique. Palate: Long, mildly bitter finish. Medium-full bodied. Overall: I’m not sure if this is one of my favorites, but it is a pretty interesting brew.

February 2013. Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Lemon aromas with spice and dark malts. Very unique and creative brew that have the proper carbonation, complexity and balance.

Beerathon (1066) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
I always enjoy trying a unique beer and this was certainly of that ilk. Subtle smoke, a bit peppery, surprising hop note, light mouth feel, black in color, with think khaki head.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2013
A lightly sweet and milky aroma with more than a dash of smoke to it. An insanely wonderful texture, thick and smooth, a long smoky burst, a little more sweet malt and then a light roasty bitterness with plenty of spicy yeast in the finish.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Clear dark plum color almost cola with ring of light tan head. Fair lightly smokey/hammy notes with a dark roastiness that comes forward at the tail end of the flavor. Interesting marshmellow note in there also. Don’t get the ’saison’ness all that much, but maybe it’s just hidden. Enjoyed this quite a bit, but not something i would feel the need to seek out again.
