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.

CanIHave4Beers (3500) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 7, 2013
I’m just failing completely at Session Beer Day....


Pours basically black with a big tight khaki head that is very well retained.

The aroma is cocoa powder, some currant, with a good bit of roast... not very sweet smelling at all... which is fine. It’s a nice smelling beer.

The flavor is fruity, brightly so.... The level of roasty bitterness is very satisfying. The beer has a nice black currant character and is largely dry. There is a mild alcohol presence to the beer that lends a bit of spiciness.

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
The aroma is not overly sweet or dry with coffee and molasses. The appearance is black with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall a good stout.

It's a nice well balanced beer with some nice malts. It's not over powering with the stout aspect. It hides it very well and gives a nice drinking with a punch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (10554) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013
750 ml bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of licorice, roasted malt, yeast, dark fruit, cocoa and light toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, dark fruit, licorice, yeast and light spice with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

1more4dessert (331) - Upstate, New York, USA - APR 3, 2013
burnt umber hue with voluminous red brown topper, medium high carbonation, smells at first like a hoppy brown ale, dark fruit, molasses and a very slight smokey whiff. Earthy spicey hopiness, prune, trace of smoke in the flavor. Medium and lively body. I don’t really know what constitutes a foreign stout so can’t say much about how it compares to others or if it is true to style. After the sip a slowly subsiding biterness gives way to smokey sweetness.

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Pours black with a tan head. Nose is interesting - earthy and spicy with roasted malt, cinnamon, currant and fig. Body starts big like an imperial stout but turns out to be more light and lively than that. Taste ventures covers dry stout territory as well, but is lighter and fruitier with some sweetness like a Scotch ale. There’s the expected roasted malt and notes of coffee and chocolate but also plum, currant and brown sugar coming through and just the barest hint of smoke. This is an unusual beer, blending qualities from disparate beer styles and making them work well together.

unclemike (2402) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours opaque with a medium, frothy and creamy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (roast, chocolate, coffee, nutty), medium hops (earthy) with fruity esters, smoke, prunes, and licorice. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a sweet finish
