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.

keanex (1655) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2013
No bottling information.
Appearance: Opaque black body with a tall and dense tan to brown head that sticks around for a while and settles into a thick and frothy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is pretty awesome, sweet cocoa and coffee with mellow but bright red apple and hints of under ripe banana.
Taste: Fruit notes are abundant throughout of apple cider and banana with a cocoa backing and a touch of roast. The flavor is a little watery during the mid thought light coffee aromas overlie it. This needs a bit more malt beef to it and it would be about perfect.
Palate: A bit thin for the style, a touch watery. Carbonation is low.
Overall: This is pretty darn good, but it’s missing body and needs a bit more carbonation. This is hinting at perfect, but is missing on some key marks.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2013
Dunkelbraun, trüb mit Bergen aus Schaum. Sehr hefige Nase mit Kakao- u. Röstmalzaromen. Im Geschmack zwar klar ein Stout mit Röstmalz, Kakao- und Kaffeenoten, aber auch sehr hefig und überbordender Kohlensäure...hat irgendwas von der belgischen Variante eines Stouts. Ein "normales" Stout ohne soviel Hefe und Co2 ist eher mein bevorzugtes Stout. Trotzdem eine gute Erfahrung!

DuffMan (8622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Smitty. Hearty near-black pour infused with lively carbonation requiring a staged pour. Aroma is burnt malts and dark fruits in equal proportion, with a rustic yeasty character. The palate is unmistakably heavy and full-bodied, but with lots of carbo. Not sure how I feel about the carbo-- I like my stouts (whether sweet or foreign or impy) to have a silky rich mouthfeel, and the carbo interferes with this. The flavours are spot on though-- sweet dark fruits with chocolate and bready yeast, some sweet light smoke. Really lovely flavours, very Belgian in character.
