stoutnick (523) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2014
Murky appearance. Aroma is dirty - don’t 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.

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.

jerohen (1995) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled, thanks to Ajen for sharing. Black appearance, small head. Nose of lots of hops and roasted malts. Very bitter flavor, combined with licorice and malts. Strongly confirms my aversion of the style, totally not my thing.

Hanoi (392) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. nose is pine nuts, prunes some floral tones and a little coco. Taste is a little coco, prunes, leading to slight pine and citrus then a coco, earthy finish. Mouthfeel is good. It’s a decent beer, but the style is a bit of a muddle for me.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Bier van hoge kwaliteit. Donker (bijna zwart) bier met schuimkraag die lekker aan het glas blijft plakken. Rijke volle smaak (drop, mout, donker fruit) met heerlijke (lange en bittere) hoppige afdronk. Bier om lekker van te genieten. Troubadour kan er wat van - na magma en obscura - alweer een VOLtreffer !!!

GenkiGonzo (270) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Draught at Belgian Beer Weekend. Hoppy aroma with chocolate and malts. Great hoppy flavour wth chocolate. Great bitterness.

ShivanDragon (1575) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
75cl, schenkt donkerbruin oogt zwart, met schuimige bruine kraag. aroma is hoppig, laurier, den, Belgische gist, chocolade, koffie maar niet zo stevig. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, redelijk fruitig, redelijk moutig, redelijk kruidig van oa laurier. zachte en gladde textuur, chocolade. Ik moet zeggen, ik ben onder de indruk- minder hoppiger dan enig andere BIPA maar deze versie is erg lekker, ook wat toegankelijker.

bonkiedeaap (261) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is black colored, with a large beige head and a lot of bubbles. The aroma is very fruity and hoppy, and also has tones of roasted malts, caramel and dark chocolate. The taste is a little sweet from the fruits and caramel but changes into complete bitterness from the dark chocolate and the roasted malts. Also a little alcohol is noticable. The finish is dry, medium bitter and long. Again an excellent beer from Troubadour, but Magma is more my style.
