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.

larsga (6321) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Medium dark brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty earthy licorice aroma with banana and soy sauce notes. Sweet, and faintly dry, cocos and banana roasty taste with licorice notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish banana and licorice aftertaste with roasty soy sauce notes. Some minerality at the end, as well as bubblegum notes throughout. Nice, harmonic, and full of flavour. Not exactly a session beer, but certainly drinkable. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Westlake, Seattle; bottled 10/08/13
Black color with medium sized brown head, not persistent. Aroma of roasted malt and breadcrust, with an impression of soap and cheese. The mouthfeel is lean, and quite smooth; the flavor is quite roasty, but not too ashy, with a touch of dark chocolate and liquorice, very light anise and chili peppers, a bit salty; the residual sugars are quite low, the bitterness reasonably high. Mild astringency in the final. Balanced overall.
Good beer, nothing more. An Imperial Stout like many others.

MrHangover (2762) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Sample @ CBC 14. Pours a very dark, clear brownish beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of sugar cane, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is medium sweet, loads of roasted malts, chocolate. Sticky mouthfeel. Long sweet finish. Very decent.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 20, 2014
Tap at Watering Hole. On the heavy side, quite thick, lots of dark fruit. Almost porter like. Liquorice, lightly spicy, fruity, soy sauce, light smoke. Initial sweetness, but then fairly dry finish. Bit of cola about it. Pretty nice.

snoworsummer (2444) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draft at Of Love & Regret. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like bitter coffee, raisins, booze, light syrup. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet booze, raisin, cherry.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 19, 2014
Mild fresh-squeezed darks fruit aroma, prune juice, some yeast. Medium dark brown, flat. Light melange of raisins, prunes, and dates. Light chocolate roast emerges in mid palate. Decided alcohol warmth. Medium body and just a little spritzy. Fun on the tongue. A nice take on the Belgian stout.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2344) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 18, 2014
On tap at the Stillwater at Dig Bar. Foreign Stout. One of their rare dark beers, it’s brewed with the Rochefort yeast strain. It pours a dark brown with a rusty beige head. The aroma is plum, roasty chocolate with a bunch of umami meatiness. The mouthfeel is quite nice, silky smooth & full bodied. The taste is sharp, fruity, dark roasty, pitted fruits - cherry-like.

KyotoLefty (6715) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Brought this back for my mates, but they will all get it on tap next week, as will I, so I drank it. very fruity nose, grapes and cherries, light citrus. Maybe some chocolate, coffee, and licorice, but it’s light. Dull black with lace. Flavor is more stout-like; lots of dark chocolate, some coffee, roasted wood, fruits. Nice and interesting. Not a straight-forward stout, something spicy and Belgian. Good stuff, though. Body it a bit thin, but i dig it.
