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 (680) - 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.

hopwine (459) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Nose is roast, ash, dark, prune, raisin. Flavor is same plus some minerality and a hint of cocoa. steers very clear of any significant sweetness despite the 8.4%. Roast lingers on dry finish.

shadey (1954) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours black with a nice stiff head of dark tan head. Aroma is dark, rich, smokey, and roasty. Flavors are almost liquor like. Very rich. Good.

caesar (5468) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle from de Molen beershop, large sample. Dark brown color, big frothy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, spicy belgian yeast, bit flowery and earthy hop, hint of coffee. Bit dry in taste, bit sweet. There is some chocolatey malt notes, but most of it is washed away by the high amount of carbonation. Thin body, way too high on carbonation. Belgian yeast does too much for me, combined with the belgian amount of carb on it, remains average.

Ferris (6340) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle - Dark sugars, raisin and nice sweet esters. Deep brown black with a gusher light brown lively head. Light brown sugars, dark fruit and a lively body. Nice and dark sweetness, but the lively carbonation takes away a little bit.

vadie (883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Très sombre avec un énorme col marron. L’arôme du chocolat et fruits noir avec un très petit peu du café. C’est comme un dubble mais aussi un stout. Le goût est du chocolat et fruit intense avec un peu du café et caramel. Très carbonisé et mais il y a aussi plein de corps.

Thewade (340) - USA - JAN 24, 2015
Medium bodied stout from 12 oz bottle. Slight roast and smoke, and 8.4% is just right. Easy to drink and tasty.

Martinus (3344) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Black colour, beige head. Bit sour aroma, coffee, brown sugar and chocolate. Light sour flavour, quite sweet, roasted malts, bit cheesy. Finish coffee, some sour notes, hint of cheese, brown sugar.
(from draught @ CBC blue session, Copenhagen 2014)
