Huge thanks to Ludo for sharing this one with us! So, 100% Belgian hops? This poured a dark brown-amber, nearly black body with a small beige head. It started off with a huge initial blast of herbal/fruity aroma hops, something which I didn’t expect... but it was gone very soon, leaving turning into a soft, malty, chocolatey aroma, which was ok, but less impressive. The same chocolate notes continue on into the taste, creamy, before ending with a strong, respectable herbal bitterness. Definitely a very good beer! I just wish what I’d had had more of that initial hop blast!

Dark brown colour, small head. Aroma roasted sunflower, dark malts, hint of chocolate. Nice bitterness, very American beer as for a belgian one. Nice!

750ml bottle 11/20/14 (Binny’s Naperville)-40° in Shaker-Pours black with ruby tints with a big off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same with a little anise and chocolate coming in. This medium bodied brew is not like American IPA’s but still tasty.

mkel07 (3957) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle from Craft Wine Store 061114. This is a boozy beer and the alcohol is the first thing that you notice. Also some chocolate in the flavour. Initial pour leads to a big foam cloud.

Another great beer from Troubadour! A Black IPA, dark, hoppy and well balanced. Drinking it with a great view on the river IJ, @ Delirium Amsterdam.
