COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Human history is filled with myths and legends that shape and define our culture. Rituals, celebrations, gatherings.. whatever. One thing thats for sure, is we enjoy a proper shindig. So lets 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.

This is a very interesting, fairly complex brew from Stillwater. The pour is black in color with a thick tan head. A firm layer sticks for some lacing. My first impression is that theres a lot going on based on the aroma. Bakers chocolate is followed by raisin bread, ash, leather, and an earthy character. The flavor seems centered around dark fruit, mocha, and charred malty notes. A bit smokey throughout. Molasses, dates, yeast, and earth adds plenty of depth. The carbonation is very active. Theres some alcohol creeping in there but its not hard to drink. The body doesnt seem all that thick or full, but not thin. I dont see this style as Stillwaters best (give me their Saison stuff) but its a good and very interesting beer.

Lhev 750 ml. Aroma m krsn ndech lutho melounu a karamelu. Pěna je vysok, moccacino barvy, jemn a pomalu mizc. Barva samotnho piva je temn a neprůsvitn. Chuť je velmi vrazn, m siln karamelov střed s ndechem kvasnic, okraj je lehk, bannov, fini je velmi robustn se silnm alkoholovm podkladem. Toto pivo je opravdu zajmav, jak svoj mohutnou chut, tak svm aroma.

OldMrCrow (2427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 This bottle, from Malt and Vine, foams slowly upon opening and continues foaming slowly out of the bottle for an hour or so. The beer pours deep black with a meringue head that you could cut with knife and fork. plenty of lacing down the side of the glass. Roasty nose struggling with sour grassy aromas. Flavor is pretty sweet-and-sour, plenty of molasses bread, very Stillwater yeast, wisps of smoke in the tail. Earthy. Baking chocolate. Hints of black cherry. Interesting, and very complex compared to the Dragonstooth stout I have open at the same time - but it doesnt come together into harmony.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2016 to me this seems like an imperial brown but call it what you will it is rife with caramel. still dark brown if you will there is a hint of butterscotch and more.

glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Heavy malt notes of toasted dark bread and dark chocolate, light resin for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with charcoal, vanilla and tobacco. Head is average to large, frothy turning creamy, light brown with thick but slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, and finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic. Palate is fuller side of medium, creamy with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. No matter what kind of Stout this is, it is absolutely one of the best around.
