Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: oline73 on 02-21-2011

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.

This beer was formerly known as 25 to One.

Had this on tap at Pizzaria Paradiso over a month ago, took notes on my phone.

Murky muddy color with nice bone white head and pretty lacing. Brown highlights shine through. Very nice grain barley in the smell and taste, all covered in fudge. Smell is a little faint but nice, though the taste is quite full. Subtle oak and toasted oak in both aroma and taste as well which is pleasing. Licorice and subtle smoky flavors also are highlighted.

Deep and dark like a bigger porter but having a nice dry roasty finish like a nice brown. I hardly notice the 8.5% and the feel is a great creamy medium to thick feel. Medium clean. Good stuff.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. the beer pours a cola brown color with brown fizzy tan head of 1 cm tha fades pretty quickly to a thin edge layer and one large wispy island.
Aroma is roasted malt and some dark fruit with prunes and molassess coming through, plus maybe raisin and fig.
First sip reveals an average body and slightly sticky texture with mild rolling carbonation. QUite nice no the mouthfeel, makes it easy to drink.
Flavor is fruity and malt based with again the plums and raisins and bits of molasses and brown sugar, fairly sweet but not cloying here. No real hop presence and the ABV is well hidden as well.
Nice drinking complex yet not palate killing brew. I enjoyed my sampling of it and would probably try it again, only drop is the lack of head retention on my sample.

500 ml bottle with sediment well settled.
A - rich dark brown to near black with a big foamy head.
S - chocolate malts, yeasty spices.
T - a roasted,toasted malty bomb with a Belgian twang.
M - thick and mouth coating but enough carbonation to keep it from stopping.
D - the 8+% is well hidden under the malts and if you like stouts you could drink alot of this.
