Right off the bat, it is obviously dark but not oily. Slight matly and hoppy aroma with smoke in their too. It is nice and light and goes down smooth, with toasted and smoked notes. Solid overall. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is pretty interesting, nothing really jumps out and dominates, there’s smoke, roast, light hops, dark wheat, some interesting yeastiness, all kinds of stuff. The smoke and roast seems to dominate the flavor pretty well, fairly heavy handed hopping, a lot of yeast influence. Just a minimal bit of alcohol noticeable on the back end. An interesting amalgam of flavors going on here. Adds up all together to make for a pretty decent beer, but not one that I think I’d drink with regularity. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, lingering lightly smoky and yeasty finish. Reynolds314 (3470) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2013
I like interesting beers and this one is interesting.. Its a smoked amber saison with black IPA tendencies. A bit hoppy and smokey with some interesting yeast character. sunevdj (4123) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013

Bottle pour. It lives up to its description as a smoked saison. A tobacco taste mixed with earthy, grass funk. Very unique and well done. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The nose is pleasantly herbal with hints of dark fruit. A black pour displaying garnet highllights when held to the light. It supports a long lastng tan head, which produces abundant ringed lacing. Tobacco, smoke, herbs, and burnt grain ply the pallet with a hop induced bitter finish A grainy, yet faintly sweet aftertaste lingers. Light body with crisp carbonation. A dry mouthfeel. Oveall, while this may not be a "true" Saison, you can taste its influences. This is a well crafted and rewardingly drinkable beer. MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle @ Olutravintola Kukko, Kemi. Dark brown beer with a small beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, citrus, yeast and smoke. Flavour is some roasted malts, light smoke, some chocolate. A bit light palate but quite nice beer still. douglas88 (9572) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium cream colored head. A sweet yeasty and chocolate nose. Light smoke, saison yeast, chocolate, toffee, citrus hops, melds together really well. Comes together like a roasted saison a bit. Maybe the hops have mellowed. Smoke lingers. Surprisingly good. tobias (208) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2013
12 oz bottle: pour is almost black with some ruby hues in the light. Creamy sand colored head. Aroma is slightly sweet and tart. Hints of roast and funkiness. Not really getting any smoke. Roasty, hoppy flavors dominate the flavor. Think and dry. Really drinkable. Still no smoke though.
