I am not a fan of too strong burned malt or smoke flavors. This one is very good. There is burned smokiness but it is wel balanced. It has some chocolate notes and finishes with a long dry hoppy bitter taste. 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.

330 ml bottle at the Beerstore, Thessaloniki. Black color with big beige head. Roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, hoppy aroma. Taste is more bitter hoppy than the aroma, sweet, light roasted malty again, sweet chocolate and light coffee. Almost medium body, oily, soft carbonation.

mkel07 (3641) - 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.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Luxury beer on 75 cl bottles and if I didn’t miss out on anything, this must be Belgium’s first ’black IPA’. Sticky, yellowish white, stable head, very dark bronze colour approaching black. Aroma of coffee grounds, bitter chocolate, tobacco, whisky, nutmeg, candied dates, pepper, leather, citrus peel, parsley. Deep and thick but smooth chocolatey maltiness, powdery mouthfeel, candied fruits, oily texture, complex spiciness, finishing in a beautiful array of mouth-filling coffee bitterness, peppery and citrussy hoppiness and whisky-like, warming alcohol adding to the complexity. So far the best Musketeers beer I have tasted - but I’m still looking for those special Magma editions.

adster (432) - HUNGARY - OCT 4, 2014
Csak dicsérni tudom ezt a főzdét, a korábban kóstolt két sörről is ódákat zengenék, s ez a típus, ha lehet, még kevésbé okoz meglepetést ízét illetően. A komlóra épülő, angolszász stílust nagyszerűen képviseli, egyszersmind tagadhatatlanul belga alkotás. Quadrupeles aromái nagyszerűen hordozzák magukon a marcipános, gyantás, túlérett gyümölcsök, füge és mazsola illatait. Speciális és rendkívüli módon szerethető black ipa, melynek íze tartalmas, likőrben úszó aszalt gyümölcsök, tűlevelű komló vonalait viseli, élesztőtől duzzadó kortyai kirobbanóan teltek. Marcipános lágyságát egy szigorú komlós zárás tereli más irányba, feledhetetlen élménnyel gazdagítva fogyasztóját.
