COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Human history is filled with myths and legends that shape and define our culture. Rituals, celebrations, gatherings.. whatever. One thing thatís for sure, is we enjoy a proper shindig. So letís get the stories flowing and share a little íFolkloreí. 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.

stantheman (855) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
From a 750ml bomber, purchased at Central City Liquor Store in Surrey. Almost black, with prodigious orange-brown head, quickly collapsing, but with good lacing. Sweet fruits and malts on the nose. In the mouth it is a somewhat sweet and very smooth and subtle rendition of one of my favorite themes in beer, which is to say "stout".

Yes, there are flavors of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and fruit to be found here, and the hops are well hidden, but at the moment I donít want to be too analytical. I just want to savor!

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a next to black body, topped by a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma is roasted, with a touch of dark berries. Roasted malts, some dark chocolate and coffee too. Itís full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with flavors of roasted malts, some berry hints, dark chocolate and a touch of warming alcohol. Long, roasted, chocolatey finish. Most definitely a nice one, like so many others from Stillwater. 130814

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 itís missing body and needs a bit more carbonation. This is hinting at perfect, but is missing on some key marks.
