Mintha csak egy külön kategória képviselőjével állnánk szemben, a Troubadour imperial stout-ja egy merőben egyedi karakterrel felvérteztett ital benyomását kelti. Olajsima fekete színe és a rátelepedő krémes hab látványa már önmagában megér egy misét. Ez utóbbi aztán minden egyes korty után ragacsos szerkezettel kapaszkodik meg a pohár falán, így képezve egy cappuccino-vakolatot az üvegen. Meghökkentően bársonyos kávé, mazsola és aszalt szilva aromái olvadnak egybe, majd szövik körül az ital légterét, az égetett cukros, aszalványos lepel alól emellett minduntalan kidugja a fejét egy fanyarabb, élesztős fonat is. A simaság, bársonyos, de nem szirupszerű, kellően élénk test tartalmas mondanivalóval rendelkezik, nagyszerű kifinomultság jellemzi minden egyes kortyát, amiben a kávéval hígított keserű étcsokoládé finoman tejszínes jellege, az ideális hőmérséklet elérésével egyre masszívabb stout karakterisztikája, a pörkölt malátafolyam morcos komlóval karcosított zárása tündököl egyre szemkápráztatóbban. Ahogyan a Troubadour korábban kóstolt darabjaiban sem csalódtam, a most kóstolt típusról is csak elismerő szavakkal tudok beszélni. Egy amolyan középvonalas imperial stout, annak azonban az egyik legmegragadóbb példánya, amivel valaha találkoztam.

On tap at Taste of Belgium in Cincy. Had it on nitro, which I suppose is especially rare in America (according to the bartender) the pour is black with a humongous light light tan nitro head. The lacing is beautiful as it falls slowly to a film. The aroma is heavy on roasted malt. There is a bit of chocolate behind it, and then it moves into a light booziness. The alcohol is a nice balance to the bitterness. The flavor is a more complex, but the malt base is there. There is a touch more chocolate and a hint of some dark fruits before a light alcohol comes in. The mouth feel is light but creamy with a good lingering roasted malt bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABT_S54 (268) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
75cl bottle shared in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a white head which lasts throughout. Aroma is very toasty and moderately powerful. Taste is dusted dark chocolate and coffee balanced well with some sweetness but the bitterness is there in the finish. Mouthfeel is perfect for the style and lends itself to being easy drinking particularly for an imperial stout.

Distance_Runner (79) - BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent, Belgium! Imperial Stout but not like the Imperial Stout from Emelisse, Struise or Mikkeller. Not very malty and pours with a high volume of brown head but the head is not again like the others, dense. Aroma reminds me Belgian Strong Ale :-) Not the aroma I’m expecting from an Imperial Stout
