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.

sonnycheeba (4816) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Tap. Pours deep dark brown with thick, frothy tan head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, chocolate, earthy notes, and dark fruit. Flavor is heavy malt, average hops, and light esters; smokey, dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

commonmac (973) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Tap pour at Of Love and Regret on Baltimore. Deep black in color with tan head. Roasty malt notes with a slight smoke. Taste actually has a bit of dark fruit Belgian to it complementing the traditional smoke and roasted nut notes of a stout. Thin body with an almost black IPA finish. Aftertaste has elements of smoke that linger. Very tasty effort from a brewery that likes to take chances. I think with a slightly toned down smoke quality I’ll be even more impressed. In general, I’ll spin the yarn of this one for at least the rest of the evening.

retinadoc (209) - - APR 3, 2016
Draft. Dark brown color. Overly subdued hop flavor. Not much going on with this brew except for the relatively high ABV. Medium bitter finish.

kespecial (201) - - MAR 15, 2016
Pours near black, tan head, good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, plums, roasted malt. Taste is the same, some rum, molasses, bitter coffee. Smooth mouthfeel, relatively bitter for the style. Very nice, but doesn’t quite come together.

Turtles (1552) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
Tap @ Omnipollos Hatt. Black with a creamy beige head, leaving good lacing. Alot of dark chocolate in the aroma with booze and some roasted notes and ash. Silky mouthfeel, mild carbonated. Rich alcohol taste, dark chocolate praline, molasses, sugar and dark dried fruit. The nice yeast and rosted notes is held back by the raw booze.

rjplumer (933) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Heavy fruity roasted malt aroma. Black as night body with a light tan thin head. Sweet dark fruity malt aroma. With a hint of roasted malts. Has a bold character but has a friendly finish. Strong enough to warm the palate on a chilly evening.
