COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mystic Descendant is a beer descended from the cultural history of the Boston harbor area. A dry Irish stout meets an English porter and is then fermented in the fermentorium with our saison yeast with a touch of the ubiquitous ingredient from the area’s past: molasses. The result is a uniqe beer; it has more dark fruit than a porter and less roast than a traditional stout, while having a different ester profile than a Belgian stout. We thus dubbed our recipe a Suffolk Dark Ale, as an homage to our immigrant ancestors.

Alengrin (5535) - BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2017
’Stoutish’ porter with molasses, vintage bottle still with the previous label, first beer from this Massachusetts brewery for me. Thick, creamy, regularly shaped, pale yellowish beige, lightly lacing mousse atop a very dark, burgundy-hued bronze, near to blackish but still largely translucent and hazy. Elegant and refined aroma of liquorice candy, soggy brown bread, dried cranberries and dito plums, pear syrup, dark berry jam, pistachio nuts, black olives, tea leaves, molasses, gravy, orange peel, dried porcini. Restrained, clean but adequate fruitiness in the onset, lots of raisin and candied fig flavors, sweetish with a brambleberry-like sourish undercurrent, very subtle black olive-like umami touch, bit leathery even in the end, with soft carbo and ’fluffy’, smooth and notably resinous mouthfeel. Caramelly, toffeeish malt middle, sweet with a toasted bitterish edge becoming more pronounced in the finish, meeting with a dash of peppery hop bitterness but remaining gentle and adding liquorice and molasses flavors in the tail, with drying, softly spicy and sweetish effect. Aromatic, elegant beer, which apparently ages graciously, motivating to find out more about this brewery. Much more a robust porter than anything stout-like, though.

ciocanelu (2789) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Murky brown color, beige head. Aroma has light molasses sweetness and some cardboard. Taste has also cardboard, stale notes, not enjoyable at all. It’s a really flawed beer.

Sample at a tasting. Chocolate and cherry. Harsh grassy chlorophyll bitterness.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brownish with a medium, light tanned head. Fruity aroma with notes of chocolate, light toast, toffee, caramel and raisins. Quite nice flavor, it’s sweet but not overly. Light bitterness from a low amount of hops and some roasted malts. Finishes fruity, roasty and dry.
