Bottle shared. Goes down well, like a lighter Chimay bleu, probably better with some rich food. Kind of had forgotten how solid the Troubadour series is.

mice (804) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Näyttää oleva nykyään 8.2% eikä 8.5% kuten OO kertoo. Tummanruskea, runsasvaahtoinen olut jättää kivasti pitsiä. Tuoksu paahteinen, lakritsainen, hieman marjainen ja mausteinen. Maku maltainen, marjainen, belgihiivainen ja kevyen mausteinen, aika makea ja pehmeä kokonaisuus. Melko täyteläinen ja kohtalaisen makea suutuntuma, mutta silti aika helppoa juotavaa. Toimiva.

adasko (1886) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Copper color, beautiful ruby reflections. Big beige head. Aroma is very sweet, pleasant, malty, caramel. On the back ground some bready and raisins notes. Taste - caramel, bread, roasted malts. Sweet in overall. Pleasant, creamy mouth feel, definately not a session beer. Aftertaste develops some iron taste but strangely skin test didn’t show anything. Rather good, high quality beer.
