bhensonb (14176) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Capped 750. Pours dark brown with a 5 finger creamy light tan head. Aroma of dark malt with chocolate. Could be full bodied. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate and a lot of hop - which does seem to be resinous. It’s very smooth - tho the hop bite interjects. Finishes just a bit ashy, bitter and entirely delicious.

HPDalen (352) - DENMARK - OCT 22, 2016
Large bottle. Pours black with a tall, massive, tan head. Excellent aroma of coffee, chocolate, chili and alcohol. Great palate, full body, slick, average carbonation, bitter finish. Flavour is very balanced, though heavy bitter with sweet tones. Fantastic beer.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Bottled 33cl. It pours a dark, murky, deep ruby beer with a healthy bubbly beige head. Grapefruit, boletus, shallots, resinous hops and roasted malt showing up in the nose. Boletus rather apparent in the taste. Medium bodied. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice roasted malt components on the swallow. Good bitterness. Dark chocolate and grapefruit in the dryish finish where yeasty components sneak in.

It’s more a stout that reminds a bit of a IPA (a tad of citrusy bitterness in the back of the tongue) than the contrary.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle at Hiranoya. Pours a deep brown to black with a gorgeous cappuccino colored head that lasts throughout. Big star anise and molasses forward nose with some roasted coffee and grassy hops as it warms. Hides the abv quite well. The finish has dark cacao, light berry mixed with grassy hops and lemon with shiso. Nice grassy, herbal bitterness. Solid.

m.mahu (40) - Iasi, ROMANIA - AUG 24, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 Pours dark brown, generous beige head, with high carbonation. The taste is sweet overall, with plenty of roasted malts, hops and slightly coffee taste. Light bitterness towards the end.One of my favourites. Love the way the alcohol is hidden in all their beers. Good for long, lazy sessions.

Bottle at Porte Noire. Super hoppy black ipa-ish dark beer with a sweet coffee base. Quite different and enjoyable, one of my favorite Troubadour.
