McNeillR (2233) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Dark brown an initially soft serve looking head collapsing to a thick ringed crust and sticky lacing. Nose is thick sweet roast, lots of sticky honeycomb and brulee vibes. Initial taste is bright, engaging and not at all as dark as it looks. Rich, vibrant rasin and soft choc bread - an exceptional balance of light and dark without being roasty or quenching. Sweetness is easy going, mostly on the finish a neat Daim bar crackle and smoothness. Mouthfeel is little bit sticky but carbonation exceptionally smooth. Lingers out a soft choc tang (softer marmite) and the ABV is drowned out in smooth flavour. Exceptional.

Bottle shared. Goes down well, like a lighter Chimay bleu, probably better with some rich food. Kind of had forgotten how solid the Troubadour series is.

mice (818) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Näyttää oleva nykyään 8.2% eikä 8.5% kuten OO kertoo. Tummanruskea, runsasvaahtoinen olut jättää kivasti pitsiä. Tuoksu paahteinen, lakritsainen, hieman marjainen ja mausteinen. Maku maltainen, marjainen, belgihiivainen ja kevyen mausteinen, aika makea ja pehmeä kokonaisuus. Melko täyteläinen ja kohtalaisen makea suutuntuma, mutta silti aika helppoa juotavaa. Toimiva.
