TheKernOwl (172) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
Smoked porter-esque (dried) coffee & bacon nose, with (chilli) chocolate and a little vanilla poking through. More candy and caramel in the body, along with grassier hops. Medium smoky finish. Nice mix of roasty + sweet malts, with hop backbone. Call it a Black IPA, a smoked porter, imperial measures or whatever. It’s subtle, silky + nice. CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide to Belgium (2014) notes that this “muddle-hopped”; that is, with all due respect (and that is a heck of a lot of respect, in all honesty), a red herring. This beer, and Magma (by the same brewers ), show that Troubadour are way, way beyond hobbyists these days.

Beertobealive (480) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - APR 5, 2016
Pours a beige Head with with first aromas of candy, hops, and secondly roasted malt. Brown colored body. Mouth is sweet, round but malts are too much roasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eljebi (68) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2016
Cerveza bien oscura, con aromas de lúpulo, malta tostada, café y toques de chocolate y vainilla. Sabor equilibrado entre las características de la malta tostada y el café y la amargura fuerte pero agradable, que se hace más pronunciada en un largo final de lúpulo. Una gozada!

Hoppy aroma. A small but nice milky chocolate head. Dark brown color. The head feels like a cappuccino head. A little chocolate-like sweetness cover by combined hop and roasted bitterness,

ABUSEDGOAT (2564) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Black pour, light tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is chocolate, yeast, light licorice, light hops. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well. Very different than the American examples, this one is much more subtle.

Lore (2083) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 31, 2016
mahogany colour, medium sized creamy beige head; aroma of cocoa, dried figs maybe plum, too, grassy and resiny notes, and hints oforange zest; taste is the same with smoke and earthy notes; not a typical black IPA with quadrupel notes, but still very good
