Good stout-like dark ale that has a very creamy touch. Nice creamy head and a full body that has a very nice touch of chocolate taste. Great.

15.11.2014. Dark brown, big velvety light brown head. Aroma has burnt sugar, plums, plenty of malts, wood. Palate is smooth and velvety. Malty character with plums, slight burnt sugar, slight bitterness. Slightly spicy. Medium sweet. Still somehow a bit thin.

Creamy bitter head. Aroma: roasted malts, light grassy hops. chocolate. Taste is sweet with light to moderate bitterness, fruits, light grassy and zesty notes, black grape peel. Moderate burned notes and the same grassy hops in the aftertaste. Very good beer, a kind of belgian stout with light grassy hops.

Bonne bière au goût plutôt agréable mais furtif. La force est bien dissimulée. Je lui trouve une légère note café réglisse.

Butelka do 09.04.2016. Lekki gaszing, piana mega obfita, beżowa, piwo koloru brazowego, lacing jest. Aromat to zarówno karmel, suszone owoce, tostowe, ale też kawowe. Wysycenie średnie. Ciekawe połączenie styli

Grote fan van de Troubadour bieren. Magma en Westkust behoren tot mijn favorieten. Dus moest deze ook geproefd worden en moet zeggen dat dit alweer een topper is. Donker bier met hele volle en rijke schuimkraag. Vol in de mond, moutig van smaak met toetsen van gebrande koffiebonen en gebrande suiker. Lekkere bittere nasmaak. Misschien net niet zo goed als Magma en Westkust maar toch een zeer lekker bier.

jamestulloch (1787) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy brown body with a medium off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of toffee, raisin and honeycomb. Flavour of toffee, caramel and fig rolls. Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture. Soft fizz. Very sweet and rich.

Dark brown, strong tan lasting head with nice lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar, some toffee and roasted chocolate malt. Taste is medium sweet brown sugar and toffee to chocolate and roasted dryish finish. Medium to full bodied and medium carbonation.

Butelka, warka do 25/03/17. Wysoka, ladna, kremowa piana, brudzaca szklo i niezbyt szybko opadajaca. Samo piwo ciemne, burgundowe, prawie nieprzejrzyste, opalizujace (chyba, ze ktos wlalby z drozdzami, to pewnie metnieje). W aromacie na dziendobry karmel, estry owocowe, lekki alkohol w stylu likieru wisniowego czy porto. Rodzynki. Pumpernikiel. Delikatniejsze aromaty to drewno, kakao, kwiaty. W sumie na bogato, ale nie do konca to wszystko ze soba wspolgra momentami. W smaku juz ubozej, ale przyjemnie. Slodkawo, alkoholowo, momenami lekko kwaskowato (po ogrzaniu o dziwo jest wiecej kwaskowatosci wlasnie, nie alkoholu czy slodkosci). Posmaki likierowe i kawowe (kawa zaskakujaca, przyznaje, ale jest). Lepkie w ustach. Wysoko wysycone. Fajnawe calkiem piwo, ale raczej nic ponad to - do najlepszych Belgian Strong nie ma startu. niemniej jak najbardziej pozytywnie :) PS: to piwo lubi wyzsze temperatury, takie niemal pokojowe

330cc bottle. Pours dark almost black with creamy tanned head. Sweet and roasty. Nicely balanced with some hop notes. Kind of bitter finish. Very nice

Moebbels (410) - FINLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Shows a fairly clear dark amber colour with a quickly dissipating creamy tan head. Nose has sweet aromas of raisins, plums, sherry and chokolate. A sweet roasty taste that leads to a dry, bitter finish. Lively carbonation with small bubbles and a rich, syrupy palate. Very nice, well balanced with lovely aromas.
