This one confirmed what I already knew: Troubadour beers are not for the squeamish and this is serious business! Splendid aromas of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate, as usual, the aftertaste is remarkable and memorable, the experience is more than pleasant. This is definitely a brand that everyone’s enjoying dark beers should know. In result, this is more than APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle shared. Lots of raisin and cocoa, lingering roasty finish. Good stuff but alcohol is definitely there. Better enjoyed late in a session.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown color with a huge, coffee-cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, malts, chocolate, and dark bread. Taste is malty and sweet: caramel and chocolate play the first fiddle, but overall it is rather delicate for an imperial stout. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is very sweet, and especially chocolaty, really pleasant but could be longer and more definitive. All in all the beer is tasty and drinkable, but it lacks the usual punch of an imperial stout - a category to which it seems to classify solely based on its alcohol content.
