Signalons d’abord, pour la précision, que cette bière est de 8,2 % abv et non 8,5. Ceci étant dit, on a ici une très grande bière noire, qui fera date dans le genre. Tous les ingrédients sont réunis : couleur noire d’encre, mousse épaisse, arômes de café, moka, chocolat … etc. Toujours notre logo des Troubadour en gothique, le blason et la devise du meilleur effet. Mais tout se passe dans le verre et pas dans la bouteille (quoique la fermentation pourrait nous en vouloir de dire cela. Donc soyons prudents ….). Oh les monstres de Troubadour... Nous versons le breuvage : noir de charbon (on ne voit rien là dedans, poussez-vous!) Clarté opaque. Bulles (en transparence lumineuse) fines par fontaine au centre (de mon beau verre calice …. ben oui). Mousse beigne moyen à jaune paille humide, très épaisse à grains moyens. Arômes de mild stout. Volume soyeux. 1ère bouche sur du café fort, du chocolat noir à 85 %, de la groseille noire, du cassis, et une pointe fine de fumée. 2ème bouche sur du moka quasi viennois, superbe fondu en bouche. 3ème sur du malt avec du chocolat (donc de l’ovomaltine...) et une sorte de ganache du meilleur goût. La longueur est en constante ligne de mire vers le haut... La levure est très « droite » pour soutenir le sujet. L’alcool sans excès est pourtant bien présent. La finale ne se laisse pas démonter et nous prouve que de nouveaux brasseurs peuvent bien faire ce travail. Remarquable travail flamand, dans ce pays du travail bien fait. Une future médaille, mais profitons-en dès maintenant....

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Brown sugar and plum on the nose, a little malt, chocolate, rather sweet, perhaps too sweet. Somewhat cloudy with a nice dark brown colour and light head. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

Mooi donker troebel biertje. Zoetige geur. Lekker bitter in de smaak met licht zuurtje. Proef in de verte wat chocolade. Mooie body en compleet biertje.

doublebock (496) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Dark amber color with thick with foam. Strong malty, chocolate and bready nose. Sweet and chewy, less like a stout than a stong belgian ale. Fruity yet toasty with a dry finish.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 19, 2010
The aroma is lovely. Really a nice and complex one, with malts and yeast perfectly combining in a spicy, honey, ripe fruit and chocolate orgy. The flavour is less intriguing, but still very good. Definitely not a stout, thou.
