Signalons dabord, pour la prcision, que cette bire est de 8,2 % abv et non 8,5. Ceci tant dit, on a ici une trs grande bire noire, qui fera date dans le genre. Tous les ingrdients sont runis: couleur noire dencre, mousse paisse, armes de caf, moka, chocolat etc. Toujours notre logo des Troubadour en gothique, le blason et la devise du meilleur effet. Mais tout se passe dans le verre et pas dans la bouteille (quoique la fermentation pourrait nous en vouloir de dire cela. Donc soyons prudents .). Oh les monstres de Troubadour... Nous versons le breuvage: noir de charbon (on ne voit rien l dedans, poussez-vous!) Clart opaque. Bulles (en transparence lumineuse) fines par fontaine au centre (de mon beau verre calice . ben oui). Mousse beigne moyen jaune paille humide, trs paisse grains moyens. Armes de mild stout. Volume soyeux. 1re bouche sur du caf fort, du chocolat noir 85 %, de la groseille noire, du cassis, et une pointe fine de fume. 2me bouche sur du moka quasi viennois, superbe fondu en bouche. 3me sur du malt avec du chocolat (donc de lovomaltine...) et une sorte de ganache du meilleur got. La longueur est en constante ligne de mire vers le haut... La levure est trs droite pour soutenir le sujet. Lalcool sans excs est pourtant bien prsent. La finale ne se laisse pas dmonter et nous prouve que de nouveaux brasseurs peuvent bien faire ce travail. Remarquable travail flamand, dans ce pays du travail bien fait. Une future mdaille, mais profitons-en ds maintenant....

vinivini (2052) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown, fine beige head. Perfect rerention. The aroma is as classic as it only could be. Nice spicy yeast, esters, caramel, toffee, banana. Full body. The taste is delicious and complex. Medium dry. Rich dark malts. Finest Belgian yeast. Prune. Notable hops and subtle roast on ending. Excellent balance. No alco feel. Great effort this one.

Belgian beer fulfills all you should have a good strong ale. But fails alexelencia of other beers of this style. It standand beer, accurate, reliable but not special.
