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

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.
