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.

wvhoran (93) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a quickly dissipating light brown head. Aroma of dark malts, yeast, fruitcake, alcohol, brandy. Comes across as a rather fruity imperial stout in the taste. Sweet initially, a little tart, liquorice. Roasty aftertaste. Medium body with lively carbonation.

Chrishrt30 (97) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2014
Pitch black with only a thin off white head. Smokey and yeasty, yet sweet almost bubble gum aroma, passion fruit and citrus. Salted caramel and chocolate, burnt toast and cigars, a good dash of citrus and berries. A cherry like sourness and pine resins. The finish is roasted malt and charcoal bitterness, a good hit of coffee and chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (1074) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-27-14. Labeled as bottled on 01/02/14. Sweet, roasty aroma features scents of brown sugar, caramel, chocolate muffin, other baked goods, and a touch of cigarette tobacco. Quite pleasant smell. Pours a very dark brown with a small amount of taupe head. Opaque liquid. Pleasant taste is consistent with the aroma except with a greater role for the roasted and tarry elements and a lesser role for the sweet elements. Cigarette tobacco and cream flavors. Dry, roasted malt aftertaste (as opposed to a dry, hoppy aftertaste). Medium body. Smooth, oily, and lively in a good palate. Overall, Stillwater Artisinal Folklore is a nice stout. It does not taste as strong as I expected given the relatively high ABV. It is solid and pleasant but nothing special.

zvikar (3370) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 26, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (3633) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 750ml bottle. Jet black colour with fulgurous expansionary, average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma of room-filling intensity, hints of its grainy origin, a vinous touch of grapes, chocolate, cocoa, remnants of yeast activity. Taste is yeasty, slightly vinous, slightly grainy, moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, dark chocolate, husky overtones,; while developing, more and more dry and roasty dark malty notes shine through. Sticky palate, oily texture; too lively carbonation really disturbes the enjoyment of flavours deserving ruminant consumption.

Taste is banana, chocolate, mild coffee, licorice and hints of grains and leather. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent stout from Stillwater.
