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.

yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. An almost clear one, reddish dark brown in color and with a dense, two-finger light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is quite roasted, with toffee hints and dried fruits. Some dark sugar too. It’s roasted and toffee-ish in the flavor, with dried fruits and sugary sweetness. Full body and a nice carbonation level, soft on the palate. A pretty decent one although a tad too sweet and lacking on complexity. 140301
