look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a deep amber to black in color with a tan head. In the aroma, a small tartness, earthy and a note of smoke. In the taste, small earthy tartness, with notes of smoke in the end. A small bite, and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry note of earthy tartness and smoke. More earthy tartness than smoke, a bit odd.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a deep brown color with a one finger tan head that leaves a good deal of lace down the glass.

S: Smell is definitely a bit faint until this thing warms up a bit. Some faint barnyard, toasted malt, a bit of smoke and something that smells a bit herbal.

T: A bit of malty sweetness upfront followed by some toasted malt and smoked wood, herbal and slightly oily hops and a bit of ash. A decent amount of flavors here, but not really ones that work together for the most part.

12 ounce bottle, purchased at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY

Pours near black, light mocha head stays and leaves some low sheeting and decent looking fine lacing.

Nose is full of dark malts, lite smoke, and some minty spice.

More dark malt, more smoke and I get some subtle pepper, mint, and then hoppy dryness to finish things out. Unusual, off beat, a style bender. Decent fall/winter type of brew. Not my favorite, but worth a try.

A smoked, hoppy saison, eh? Ok, I'll give it a go.

Pours dark brown/reddish. Perhaps black. Off brown foamy head, nice lacing.

Spicy aroma of Belgian yeast, some roasted malt and floral hops. Exactly what to expect. Subtle smoke and caramel.

Flavor is like a saison with smoke and roasted malt. Nothing complicated, I guess, which makes it taste pretty good. The yeast lifts the smoke/roast and dances around. Hops provide a bit of bright floral and slick bite. Finishes dry with some herbal spice.
Feels good, too. Perhaps a tad more carbonation would up the refreshing factor a bit, but this isn't a summer saison. It's quite good

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, herbs, adhesive bandages, and some smoked wood aromas. Taste is slightly sour with some dark roasted malt, char, and smoke flavors. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness and a tart twang with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer with some odd aromas and flavors that don't meld together very well. Unfortunately, this will go down as another miss in the Stone collaboration series in my book.

12 oz.

Pours black with a brownish tint around the edges. Creamy head retains as a film.

Smells of bretty yeast, some piney hops and mildly toasty bready malts.

Tastes of pine hops and mildly citrusy grassy malts.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

An interesting take on a saison. The bottle says its supposed to be a smoked saison, but there's none of that in the flavor. It's just much more hoppy than a saison would normally be. Aside from that, it's pretty good, but it's not really what you look for in a saison.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours dark with light brown head

S: Smells kinda like asphalt. I couldn't smell any other attributes.

T: Petroleum taste with no desirable flavors that you would expect from smoke or dark roast.

M: The mouthfeel was fine. Plenty of carbonation and body.

O: If I made this at home, I would not serve it to anyone. It truly tastes like it was fermented in a bucket used to tar a roof. I can't imagine ordering a second serving. Bad. Luckily, BevMo has it for $3.19 so you can try it yourself and see for yourself.
