The_Osprey (5487) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle share at Moeder Lambic as ’Troubadour Obscura’. Very dark brown, opaque, still, small foamy brown head, dotted lacing. Aroma is liquorice, mint, sweet malts, slightly sour vibe, alcohol. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is soft molasses, caramel, candi sugar, earthy, bread crusts, soot, minty pine. Overly sweet for me. Just OK.
