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.

leghorn99 (83) - Livorno, ITALY - APR 8, 2015
Si presenta di colore nero profondo; poca schiuma color cappuccino e per niente persistente. Al naso è complessa, buona dose di malto tostato, caffè nero amaro e leggermente affumicato, un tocco di lievito e aromi più dolci di frutta scura; che portano alla mente una tipica strong dark ale belga. Il gusto è di malto scuro tostato, leggermente affumicato, odore di caffè; lievito di ispirazione belga, un retrogusto fruttato (datteri, prugne). La bevuta è liscia e rotonda, finale asciutto e moderatamente amaro; l’alcool rimane ben nascosto, ma dona comunque una buona sensazione di calore.

On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours dark brown with a cappuccino foam. Aroma is belgian yeasts, malt ,caramel, brown sugar, some roasted notes, alcohol, powerful. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, a halfway between a belgian strong ale and a stout. High body, medium carbonation. Interesting!
