Evil Twin / Stillwater / Stone “The Perfect Crime” Black Smoked Saison

When three distinct brewing forces—Evil Twin, Stillwater, and Stone—collide in what can only be described as a conspiracy rather than a collaboration, the outcome is “The Perfect Crime” Black Smoked Saison. This unconventional brew breaks free from style constraints, weaving a narrative of darkness, deception, mystery, and a touch of arrogance. Is it a crime against traditional brewing guidelines? Perhaps. Is it worth talking about? Maybe it’s better left unspoken.

Appearance

The liquid rebellion pours into the goblet with a rebellious spirit, displaying an amber-hued dark brown adorned with a rebellious white pinstripe.

Aroma

The olfactory experience is a journey to the low tide at the shore, with hints of Tripel yeast and a distant campfire creating an aroma that defies expectations.

Taste

The flavor profile unfolds like a spicy caper, featuring dry Belgian yeast with a bold euro hop spice that cleverly concludes with a woody finish.

Mouthfeel

In a world of brewing norms, this rebel stands tall with a full-bodied presence and a modest carbonation that defies expectations.

Overall Impression

Initial skepticism gave way to a pleasant surprise as this unconventional creation surpassed expectations. Stone Brewing, known for its mastery of Saisons, takes a daring leap with “The Perfect Crime,” proving that deviation from the norm can yield enjoyable results. While far from a typical Saison, the curiosity about the aging process lingers—would red wine barrels or smokey Scotch whiskey barrels further elevate this rebellious brew? Only time will tell.
