33cl flesje via drankgigant.nl Alcoholpercentage van 9% Uitgeschonken in Leffe glas Uiterlijk: niet pikzwart zoals bij een stout, rood gloedje, weinig schuim Aroma en smaak: caramel, gebrande mouten, licht hoppig Conclusie: beetje licht gezien het alcoholpercentage, ook geen stevige stoutsmaak. Beetje tegenvaller gezien de andere Troubadour bieren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imperial stout refermenté par les Mousquetaires, d’un niveau de 9 % abv. Mon exemplaire pouvait dépasser allégrement juillet 2017, mais il a succombé à l’hiver 2015 … Couleur noir profond, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun moyen, à texture solide en haut, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de café italien, cassonade, candi brun, fût de chai, pointe de Madiran. 1ère bouche très souple, à la magnifique entame malt/houblon, avec une pointe anisée. Arrière-bouche dense, sur des malts torréfiés finement. 2ème au superbe ensemble malt/épices, avec une pointe fine mentholée. Arrière-bouche avec réglisse, acajou, pointe de mandarine confite. 3ème au grandiose ensemble malt/houblon avec une pointe de lierre. Arrière-bouche aux nuances superbes, très fine, complexe, riche. Longueur où on part sur le whisky, café italien, bonbon à l’anis, pointe de cassis. Jambes fines, serrées. Levure dense, originale, très belle ligne. Alcool à la remarquable performance de soutien aux saveurs. Finale dont on se relèverait la nuit pour en prendre une seule gorgée. CONCLUSION : très grande bière, qui n’est certes pas fidèle au standard impérial stout, mais on s’en tape les ballerines …. En tout cas, celles du Bolshoï !!!

Grumbo (1199) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle at The Arcade Tavern, Ipswich. Poured a very dark brown colour with a tan colour head. Aroma of roasted chocolate, malt and dried fruits. Light sweetness, medium roasted bitterness. Soft carbonation. Unexpected thinness to texture. This one lacked the ’wow’ I normally associate with this style.

SlackerMads (2782) - DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle. Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized tan head with good retention and lace. Roasted malt, fruits, minerals, coffee, dust. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation, good balance between sweet and bitter. Warming alcohol, light acidity. Not bad.

0.33l bottle. Rubyish dark brown body, huge light beige head. Aroma of chocolate, sour cherry, caramel and cocoa. Taste of chocolate, sour cherry, nutmeg, floral hops and caramel. Not a typical imperial stout, but I like it.

mgajdaczewa (1570) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
W aromacie likierowe, mało czekolady, sporo buchającego alkoholu, niezbyt stylowo, ale nie przerażająco słabo. W smaku mało ciała, lekko czekoladowe, bardziej karmelowe, alkohol wyczuwalny. Nieprzekonujące.
