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.

Idiosynkrasie (4535) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 750ml bottle. Jet black colour with fulgurous expansionary, average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma of room-filling intensity, hints of its grainy origin, a vinous touch of grapes, chocolate, cocoa, remnants of yeast activity. Taste is yeasty, slightly vinous, slightly grainy, moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, dark chocolate, husky overtones,; while developing, more and more dry and roasty dark malty notes shine through. Sticky palate, oily texture; too lively carbonation really disturbes the enjoyment of flavours deserving ruminant consumption.

Ron (2848) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark black pour with nice tan ring. Coffee, vanilla, Belgian yeast, smoke and booze. The taste has a smoked malt front but relaxes into a more bittersweet chocolate taste. Dark fruits, raisins. Harsh herbal finish. Interesting stuff. ABV not really hidden here. Good name and label are a plus too.

stoutnick (679) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Black no foam. Aroma is super non-descript - mild malt tang. Taste is very smooth but not overly interesting. Nil complexity. Best thing about this guy is the ABV is very well hidden. Boring.

ej (910) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2014
Pours a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is moderate roast and a heavy does of belgian yeast. Works pretty well. Taste is dominated by roasted malts but with a fruity touch from the belgian yeast. It is rather dry with a bitter finish that is quite parching actually. The body seems somewhat light considering it’s above average abv. but with close to a fizzy palate it also works pretty well.

beechner224 (823) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
