On sight, "The Perfect Crime" pours a pleasant deep chocolate brown with just a hint of off white head. The nose is one of smokey espresso with a hint of spice and hop. Perhaps time in the bottle has robbed it of some complexity.

On the palate it opens with the same smoked flavor, but then gets a little bit funky. The medium and smooth body carries spice, but not in a discernible way. The roasting almost takes on a piney-herbal note. It ends rather slowly with a pine-chocolate smoke flavor that, while not bad, isn't something that asks for you to come back. Perhaps two years ago this was more entertaining, but now it seems little more common place, calling to mind Back in Black from 21st forcibly.

Bought a 2012 in November 2014. Sampled it in November 2014, as well.

I thought saisons cellared well. Either I am wrong on that, or there was something wrong with this one, or it was just a crappy beer.

Will not comment further than to say it was awful.
