COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Human history is filled with myths and legends that shape and define our culture. Rituals, celebrations, gatherings.. whatever. One thing that’s for sure, is we enjoy a proper shindig. So let’s get the stories flowing and share a little ’Folklore’. A bracingly deep ale, built dark and rich with an elegantly lean body, accompanied by heady aromas of Belgian yeast, earthy hops and gently kissed by a wisp of smoke.

Bottle. Pours a black color with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruit, hint of chocolate and caramel sweetness. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, bit of chocolate and coffee with touch of smoke. Has a distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth with a good malty character with no hint of the 8.4% ABV. Interesting and enjoyable beer.

(On tap @ Mikkeller) As grateful as I am at being able to enjoy the ’leftovers’ of the CBC I cannot help but reflect on the way I somehow always manage to order dark, strong beers in Mikkeller Bar when I don’t have the time to spare to properly warm these beers from the cold temperature at which they are served. Let this serve as a disclaimer to my tasting notes in the below. Poured into a stemmed Mikkeller glass reveals a pitch black body and the signature Mikkeller pour with no space left over in the glass for proper head formation with a slight ring of surface film. No lace and very weak head regeneration. Aroma is interesting and seems to match my expectations for a foreign stout. Dark but with a funky (not tart) twist that seems to have notes of chocolate, toffee and phenols. Oily texture, medium body, lively carbonation to the point of being prickly on the tongue and aboozy warming finish, which is probably due to the fact that there is very little masking sweetness in the flavour. It never gets unpleasant though. Interesting composition.
