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 (559) - 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.

PotjeBier (1603) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
On tap @ Beer Temple, taster size. Black color, beige head. Aroma’s: red fruit, caramle. Retronasal it’s sweet, sugarwater, red fruit, some herbs. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, lightly roasted, a bit drop/licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor seems to enhance towards the finish, more roast, light bitterness, but overall to sweet and not very stout-like.

Not the best reaction from kyside after tasting this beer. It had not a clear taste of sweet vinegar if it could exist.

Simonsen (631) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Svart ugjennomsiktig farge. Lavt karbonert, noe skum som forsvinner. Smaker mørkbrent malt, sjokolade, kaffe og litt lakris. Hint av Chili helt på tampen av ettersmaken kanskje?. En velbalansert øl.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown near black body with a ring of head. Smells incredible- some smokiness, nuts and chocolate. Pretty rich overall. Sticky palate with lots of roast flavour. Smokiness is again apparent. Very enjoyable. 2014-07-10
