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.

Niller (1706) - Hammel, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle from Voldby. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma and taste is light roasted malt, coffee, caramel, hint of chocolate, dark dried fruits. Soft carbonation. Nice roasted finish.

ElDesmadre (3627) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle. Caramel, nuts, red fruit, subtle dark coffeeish notes. Complex aroma but unfortunately flat flavour, watered down. The saison yeast is also nowhere to be found. Disappointing.

Biroholik (1481) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Degustacja @ Silesia Beer Fest II
Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzysty. Piana fajna, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. W aromacie głównie melasa, kawa i kakao. W smaku ciemne słody, czekolada, melasa. W tle lekkie pieczone nuty. Dalej trochę karmelu i chlebowości. Bardzo wodniste w smaku! Oczekiwania były wysokie, niestety dość przeciętne piwo. Kolejny przereklamowany drogi produkt, który nie jest warty swojej ceny :/

mgajdaczewa (2218) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 16, 2016
SBF. W aromacie czarna czekolada, nieco orzecha, z tyłu melasa, przyzwoicie. W smaku półpełne, czekoladowe, palone, opiekane, orzech się traci, najlepszy jest posmak, melasowy, gładki, bardzo przyjemny. Niezwykle sesyjne, smaczne piwo., choć oczekiwania, zwłaszcza związane z użytym szczepem drożdży, były wyższe. Belgii tu po prostu nie ma.

vyvvy (6559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2016
The beer pours brown with an off white head. The aroma has toast, earth, molasses and licorice. It has a medium body with some bite and mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with spice, mild roast, molasses and is pretty light and mild. The finish is very dry and has some woody and papery notes. Good.

12-FEB-2016, bottle @Ulkløbben meeting, @Morten. Almost clear, Brown, low off-white head. Aroma is coffee, roast, bread, yeast. Taste is very bitter with coffee. OK but a bit strange brew.

Strong scents of molasses, cinnamon and a hint of malt. Very dark color that stops light. Has nice molasses flavor reminiscent of root beer. Nice and soft, with a sweet after taste.

dwyerpg (6282) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 18, 2016
This was pretty disappointing, especially for the high price. Looks more like a brown ale than a stout, it has a semi-thick nut brown flavor which just isn’t that good really.
