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.

fiveacestx (566) - Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle poured into a snifter - an overwhelming amount of head on the pour. Mocha colored head that dissipates and leaves lacing. The nose is chocolate malt and the taste is a roasted flavor. The mouthfeel is rich but slightly thin. Has a smoky finish.

Vighals (1083) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Lakris, mørke frukter, mørk sjokolade og syrlige bær. Salt, lett bitter og noe søtlige toner i bakgrunnen. Kort men fyldig. Bitter salt avslutning. lite avslutning.

Jur (282) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Jet black pour, ocre head. Salmiac nose. Flavour too, not much else. Nice, but bit boring.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 16, 2014
Very black bodied and with stable beige lace. Coffee, woody, toasted, dark caramel. Rich aroma for the abv. Quite creamy. Taste is creamy too, medium sweet, light smooth hop bitterness that’s more apparent in the end. Quite creamy and nice but somehow it’s not overly appealing to me. Perhaps my mood. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very, very dark brown with a light brown head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and licorice. The plum component of the dark fruits, and contrastingly, the bakers chocolate, come through more down the glass. Taste follows; stone fruits, some chocolate, some caramelly malts. Medium bodied, mostly fruity. Decent. 14.3

kevinsenn (1055) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store in Mountain View. Pours black with light brown lacing. Aroma of licorice, spice, and burnt grains. Interesting and unique taste. Floral, spicy notes, with roasty grains, fairly sweet, with a long smooth floral finish. Medium-full body. Pretty nice!

jesperhammer (2859) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2014
08-AUG-2014, draft @Mikkeller & Friends. Black with low grey’ish head. Aroma is weak roast, sweet licorice and dark berries. Taste is berries, prunes, roast, coffee but first of all berries. Above average body and carbonation. Strange one - especially for at stout. Not very roasted. Tastefull and well made but strange.

rumproasts (2846) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
bottle. black with one finger tan head. strikes me as a quad/stout hybrid. lots of dark fruit, but all the roasty malt that you’d expect from a stout. very interesting and tasty brew. well done.

kathouse (980) - Nevada, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Black with brown tints. Thin head. Chocolate and smoke aromas. Dry roasted flavors and some toffee sweetness makes this a better foreign stout. Finish is not too dry. Very good.

maneliquor (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor cheers to Baldy. This is a weird one. Kind of seaweedy.... Yeah definitely seaweed as a note in there. Odd stuff. Kind of liked it though. Sessionable as for 8%

Poured deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark fruit - plums, prunes - dark chocolate, coffee and roast malt. Medium body, flavour as the aroma.
