Light hazy, mahagon brown/red in colour with a large frothy tan head. On the nose aromas of roasted malts, lightly woody, dusty barnyard and roasted coffee beans develop. A brief fizz fading into light oilyness. Full bodied light sweet with burnt toffee malt aromas. Finish is coherent and medium long.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 This beer smells terrific. It smells kind of nutty and sweet. The appearance bears a remarkable resemblance to Guinness, but with a slightly less foamy head. The flavour is sweet and nutty too, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but tastefully so. The palate is not overly complex and well balanced, not tasting overly of alcohol, as some stronger beers are prone to do. Overall: Quality brew.

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....

Pours dark red-brown with a big tanned head. Smooth chocolatey and nutty flavours are complimented by a roasty bitterness. Some fruity and spicy flavours typical to Belgian yeast comes along to play as well. Perhaps more interesting than good.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2012
bottle, dark brown/red coloured with foamy white head. Smell: ripe fruits, some alcohol. Taste: woody, ripe fruits, some alcohol notes, not too bitter, nice touch of roasted malts, some sweetness. Good one!

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of raisin and caramel. Poured a cherry brown with a huge head. Flavor matched the nose but definitely lighter. Palate was smooth and easy. Overall, okay, wished the flavor was a little more heartier though.
