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.

Pours a dark brown with a muted brown head that is pretty creamy.smells heavy on dark roasted malts. Some belgian yeast as most stillwaters do. Faint hops. Dark malts are up front supported by the yeast. A little sour, smoke in the aftertaste. Interesting brew for sure.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
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

Nocturne (744) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Black, as expected, with a light brown head. The first thing to jump out is a smoky bacon influence, which is then joined by notes of coffee and molasses. It’s all carried through an oily, nearly chewy, mouthfeel which is a great conduit for the flavours. Excellent stout.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Keg @ Port Street Beer House. Pours opaque brown with creamy tan head. Lots of dark fruits and a complex roasted malt taste with a sweet silky mouthfeel and good bitter finish. Very nice and very moreish.

esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours almost jet black with a creamy tanned head. Smell of roasted malts, caramel, some fruity esters, coffee and mocca. Moderate sweet, roasty, dark malts, chocolate and coffee, some milky flavors, fruity tones, dried frutis. Nice complexity, moderate bitter finish with earthy tones and ash. After some sips i find hints of chili and smoke. Very nice

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle, 14C. Black with a tan head that fades to a coat quickly but never quite disappears. Earthy aroma with dark berries and grapes, roasted barley, some Coke. Taste is much sweeter than expected and while it’s not heavy it is insistently mouthfilling. Roasted and earthy flavours, some chocolate, star anise and pepper, some brine, dark berries/ wine. Lowish carbonation about right where I like. Interesting and good.

jeremyh70 (656) - Missouri, USA - JUN 28, 2014
A nearly opaque black pour with a big tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves good lacing. Aroma is dark fruit forward with figs and plums along with hints of chocolate, coffee and savoriness. Taste has dark fruit and some molasses sweetness. Mid palate there is a grainy roastiness, some dark chocolate, mild coffee and a hint of smoke and earthiness. Finishes with a little sweetness and roasty bitter. Lighter bodied than most stouts with a crisp and higher carbonation also. Big flavorful stout with nicely integrated flavors and mild sweetness that is a compliment to the darker flavors.

A fairly sweet stout. Dark brown/black pour, thin head. Aroma of dark chocolate, anise and roast. Fairly sweet, with chocolate and anise in the forefront. a bit smoky, roasted malt, yeast. Medium body.
