Bottle at Global Tap in Delray Beach, FL. Tulip. Pours a muddy brown with a two finger fluffy head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, caramel, Belgian yeasts, and roasted malts. The taste is similar. Not as sweet as expected, but the Belgian yeasts come through nicely. Grainy. Medium full body and moderate carbonation. Finishes with sweet, roasted malts and yeasts.

Ik vond het (zoals de meeste troubadour-bieren) niet echt lekker. Ze hebben een speciale smaak

Pours a murky dark brown colour with a nice tanned foamy head, little carbonation. Chocolate and coffee aroma, strong notes of roasted malts there too. Dry, smokey taste, nicely balanced coffee and malt notes. Goes down silky smooth, beautifully full bodied texture.

Zomgwtfbbq, this beer is dark and sweet. Supposed to taste like chocolate, but that is not really what I taste in it.

timmwillum (64) - BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Mørk dunkel med et gyldent skær. Skummet er tykt brunt og blivende. Næse af jern, humle, citrus og en anelse anis. Smagen er klassisk portertype med sødlig start og frisk bitter eftersmag. Masser af kulsyre. Lakrids skovbær og kaffe. Rigtig fin mørk porter/ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Donker, troebel bier met beige schuimkraag. Aroma van drop, karamel, mouten. Licht rokerig. Bitterzoet met een zurige nasmaak. Licht melig, maar niet op een vervelende manier. Dik en zacht in de mond. Prima bier.
