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.

ERB92 (261) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Coffee, milk chocolate, dried fruits and some roasted malts in the aroma. Almost black with a red tint, tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice stout, but i would like a bit less carbonation and a bit less of apple in the flavour.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 16, 2014
Very black bodied and with stable beige lace. Coffee, woody, toasted, dark caramel. Rich aroma for the abv. Quite creamy. Taste is creamy too, medium sweet, light smooth hop bitterness that’s more apparent in the end. Quite creamy and nice but somehow it’s not overly appealing to me. Perhaps my mood. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very, very dark brown with a light brown head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and licorice. The plum component of the dark fruits, and contrastingly, the bakers chocolate, come through more down the glass. Taste follows; stone fruits, some chocolate, some caramelly malts. Medium bodied, mostly fruity. Decent. 14.3
