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.

Bottle; bomber at home. This one gushed all over the place in the kitchen. EVERYWHERE. This is super-infected; sour lactose and nail vanish. Very rough mouth-feel. Chocolate and booze is there; I think the base beer non-infected would be nice but it’s just really missing the spot for me. Feel like a twat for reviewing it but I thought the brewery should know that this has happened.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Much thinner palate than expected but pretty tasty. The belgian yeast gives it a unique flavor along with notes of coffee and smoke.

ryanfolty (1900) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2014
December 9, 2014 - bottle from Wine and Cheese. Very dark brown pour with nice amount of head that faded somewhat quickly. Aroma was roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and some alcohol. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but more of a dark chocolate and coffee mix. Had a nice amount of sweetness that was slightly dry and finished with a hint of alcohol. The body was thinner than I expected, but drank smoothly.

mkel07 (3662) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle from Wine Emporium 031214. One of the best stouts that I have had in a long time. Super dark and super tasty. Fills the nose with rich and slightly bitter aromas. Full n the mouth with an aftertaste that goes on and on. A beer to savour.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Muddy black color with cocoa head. Sweet roasty grain nose, with perhaps a touch of hay. This beer does indeed conjure up some essence of the Olde Worlde in the ever so slightly mysterious, yet indescribably familiar bouquet subtext. Perhaps its the infringement of chocolate and anise, and perhaps event a soupcon of molasses. Sweet chocolate body with doses of milk chocolate, anise, and hay. Cacao nibs and roasty, fresh milled roast barley finish.

MartinVanBeer (116) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Thick black pour with a dissipating dark brown head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is toasty malt, a little funk, cherries, dark chocolate, and plums. Nice warm presence of alcohol. It's sweet and bracing, with an excellent coffee finish that displays traditional stout flavors. This stout has many elements and really unfolds long after the first sip ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (6295) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2014
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 20 Aug 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of creamy chocolate, coffee and blueberries. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, blueberries, cacao and a creamy finish with a generous cacao bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain malt sweetness. Chocolatey, tasty and well balanced. Very nice.

Looks great. This is a decent stout but it’s just a bit too sweet, both in the aroma and in the body. Quite black, it’s filling yet sugary.
