Really really great beer. Foam is delightful, light brown. Smell has hints of coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts and toasted bread. Taste is round, fulfilling and strong - just the way I like it. Highly recommended as a beer for some nice red meat!

Habanero (2561) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear deep amber with a large, tan head. Aroma of slightly toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, hoppy notes and dried fruit. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Belgian Strong.

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

Straling (357) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
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.
