Iíve been allocated more than I deserved. A little bit bitter cloudy brown, not much there in my drop of beer. Yeasty. Bottle thanks to someone at Travlrís place.

MarcoDL (2268) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
Body of yeasty roastedness, with a touch of coffee and cacao. With some nice bitter hops than provide for some extra fruitiness. High on alcohol, but that itsnít noticable. Good beer.

stevoj (2235) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Not overwhelming. Why is Belgium trying to imitate the West Coast? Weak black IPA, left wanting in almost all categories.

kingstoni (1532) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Black color with a medium thin off-white head. Lacing. Aroma of licorice, roasted malt and hops. Sweet and bitter taste. Bitter finish. A bit oily feel.

henkjanwiegers (120) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a cola-brown color with a firm, creamy head. It has an aroma of roasted malts and hops. I like what I see. Surprisingly low on carbonation. Roasted malts, but not the mocca kind. Tastes like toasted bread and grains, followed by a nice bitter taste of hops. Coffee bitter in the finish, filled with hoppy goodness. Unexpected but very enjoyable beer from Troubadour.

stoutnick (564) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2014
Murky appearance. Aroma is dirty - donít know any other way to describe it! Taste is a little lactic (milky), with some mild black malt roast and hops. Finish is a bitter tang. Overall, decent but far from a beer I would look for again.

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours unclear brown with a lasting tan creamy medium head. Aroma is earthy hops, spruce, grass, nutty, butterscotch, dark bread, toffee, grapefruit and coffee. Taste is near moderate sweet and bitter. Body is near medium, texture is mild smooth, carbonation is moderate+. Finishes bitter, herbal hoppy and somewhat messy.
