very nice troubadour again... it is in everything the darker part of the Magma... aroma full of hops (early on), roasted malts and hints of chocolat and coffee... nice balanced bittersweet taste... the magma is better because of it’s fuller body

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fruity belgian porter, or a roasted malty belgian brown ale. Either way, it is remarkably drinkable and yet complicated. It has a nice fresh smell of coffee and chocolate. It is a little sour, a nice fruity sweetness, all in bath of roasted malty goodness.
