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.

Aroma is dark malts, mild Belgian yeast and vinous. The flavor is dark fruit/vinous, dark malts, fruit/berries and a mix of sour, acidic and mild smoke in the finish.

c0fein (256) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2014
355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere. BTLD 03/31/14.

Black stuff with a small beige head. Licorice, smoke, salty. This was better at the beginning but goes too monotonous at the end. Still a good one!

TET (1809) - FINLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Almost black beer with a medium and beige head. The nose has liquirice, vanilla, sweet strawberries, some chocolate, hint of coffeeish roastiness. Complex and nice aroma. Taste has liquirice, marzipan, some roastiness, nice sweetness, the end is dryer and slightly roasted with vanilla. Medium+ bodied, pleasant and smooth to drink. Could be Imperial stout as well. Complex and slightly personal, enjoyable beer.

Xenomorph (60) - Sundgau, FRANCE - DEC 26, 2014
Pouah que dire, sûrement une des meilleure bière que j’ai pu goûter ces 10 dernières années. Elle a du caractère mais reste très équilibrée et son goût de café est bien dosé. La fin de bouche est excellente et on reste sur une touche très agréable. Juste envie d’en boire une autre. Mon petit plaisir.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
0.355l bottle. It has a deep and dark brown pour this one and only a small kinda dark grey / beige head. It has both dark fruit sweetness and roasted tones on the nose. Kinda sweetish at first. Gets darker and more roasted after a while in the glass. Some chocolate and traces of coffee. Dark chocolate biscuits. Smells nice. It has a nice roasted taste with a fair amount of dark berries and candied sugar sweetness. The dark kind. It has a oily feeling in the mouth and it’s about average on the small prickling bubbles. Definitely not extreme roasted, but it has some darkness. Sweetish with a little alco burn in the aftertaste. It’s not anything special going on here, but it’s a well crafted beer that I’d have no problems drinking again. A bit sweet though? Nah, it’s definitely a nice one this . 08.06.2014

Tmoney99 (11230) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Bottle; bomber at home. This one gushed all over the place in the kitchen. EVERYWHERE. This is super-infected; sour lactose and nail vanish. Very rough mouth-feel. Chocolate and booze is there; I think the base beer non-infected would be nice but it’s just really missing the spot for me. Feel like a twat for reviewing it but I thought the brewery should know that this has happened.

BroSpud (1755) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Much thinner palate than expected but pretty tasty. The belgian yeast gives it a unique flavor along with notes of coffee and smoke.
