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

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

paulvanpelt (321) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
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.

fantti (680) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin tumman punaruskeana ja kirkkaana, 3 sormen paksuinen vaahto jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksussa on vahvaa marjaisuutta, makeaa tummaa hedelmää, paahdettua sokeria ja hiven mausteista yrttisyyttä. Maussa jatkuu sama marjaisuus ja tummaa rypäleisyyttä, joiden alla on yrttisyyttä ja lakritsista juurisuutta. Makeaa otettakin on, muttei liikaa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, makeahko ja yllättävänkin helposti juotava. Enemmän vahva belgi kuin portteri, marjat ja rypäleet eniten esillä. Pelottavan helposti juotava.

Barwa: ciemna, pod światło rubinowa, lekko zmętniona. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, gęsta i obfita. Aromat: ciemne słody, lekka paloność, czekolada, melanoidyny oraz karmel. Początkowo kuszący, ale po chwili dochodzą do tego nuty miodowe (utlenienie) oraz metaliczne, co potwierdził test skórny. Smak: pełne, dość słodki, czekoladowe z alkoholową końcówką i wyczuwalna lekką goryczką. Niestety nieco miodowe, na szczęście mnogość ciemnych akcentów przykrywa metaliczność. Piwo kupione trochę przypadkiem ze względu na "okazyjną" cenę, związaną ze zbliżającym terminem minimalnej przydatności do spożycia. Piłem je już wcześniej i wywarło na mnie dobre wrażenie. Obecnie nie było złe, jednak nuty utlenienia były dość wyraźne. Ogólnie zatem nie najgorzej, ale chyba nie o to chodzi żeby kupować piwa nieco "uszkodzone" nawet za niższą cenę.

fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en bouteille de 330 ml au Bistro des bières belges à St-Hubert. Bien équilibrée, a assez de corps. Un peu forte, assez sucrée, peu amère. Goût de céréales torréfiées, de café rôti, de chocolat noir amer. Très bonne, de beaucoup supérieure à la Troubadour Blond.
