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 (782) - 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 (1824) - 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.

KoNrRiI (1181) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2016

0.33 bottle.
Hazy, very dark brown color and a humongous, thick, tanned head leaving some lacing. Aroma of dark malts, sugar, fruity syrup, dark fruits, some roast, delicate wood, and a bit of fig liquor. Taste is almost as complex, roast, wood, and syrups take the prime but other elements still remain in the mix adding slight gimmicks. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish swerves between fruity and malty flavors as it progresses, a pleasantly varied mix. Overall the beer is splendid; its alcohol content could be better hidden in an ideal scenario but it does not offend and its warmth can be enjoyable. The only real blemishes are its delicately watery character towards the end and a complexity also diminishing with time.

Xstream (241) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Geur is niet heel sterk. Wat mat. Het ruikt eerst wat moutig, als geroosterd brood, Caramel kruidig en later komt t wat meer los met wat rood fruit. In de mond zoet, nectar achtige body. Afdronk is kruidig, koffie en caramel en later duikt er wat rood fruit op. Geur valt me tegen. De dronk is lekker. Mooie balans van krachtig en fris. Fijn bier.
