Towey1989 (2568) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a hazy brown colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, some spice, slight roasted malts, a hint of dark fruits and subtle herbs. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, some liquorice, spice, slight herbs, a little alcohol, a hint of dark fruits and subtle coffee. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, slightly warming, spicy liquorice bitterness in the finish. A typical Belgian stout with a lot of raw liquorice and herbs creating its recognisable character. Decent.

Donker bier met medium lichtbeige schuimkraag. Zoet, licht zuur en licht bitter. Mout, drop, basterdsuiker. Redelijk wat co2, goede film. Apart voor een stout.

Encore une trs belle russite pour la brasserie The Musketeers, avec un imperial stout relativement doux mais styl et lgant. Et si limpression densemble montre une bire homogne, bien quilibre et bien construite, cest vritablement dans les petits dtails que The Musketerrs laisse transparatre toute sa matrise brassicole. En verre, le noir et intense (EBC de 110) avec une mousse beige, crmeuse de deux centimtres dpaisseur. Le nez nest pas des plus dvelopp, mais intressant sur le pruneau, le caf et le candi. Lattaque, splendide, se porte sur une amertume frache et des notes de caf expresso et danis. La deuxime bouche est plus suave, sur des armes de chocolat et de caf relevs par de la rglisse et une pointe de cassis. Larrire bouche, oriente vers lamertume enrichit de belle faon la ligne principale en apportant galement des notes menthole. Ce sont ces petites dclinaisons danis, de rglisses et de menthe qui font toute la richesse gustative de cet imperial stout. Mais soyez y attentifs, car limpression densemble vous portera facilement sur le triptyque chocolat/caf/amertume en vous passerez ct de lessentiel. Mais il est vrai que le sucre une pointe trop dose (et jindique bien une pointe, celui-ci ntant pas excessif non plus) ne permet pas entirement de les mettre en avant. La suite de la dgustation est axe sur lamertume qui devient de plus en plus saillante avec une intensit bien dose (IBU de 45) et des armes de caf. La corpulence et la longueur sont bonnes avec un alcool 9 % Abv se sentant trs peu. Le sucre lgrement trop dos, rend de fait ce stout facile boire et le rendant peut tre lgrement moins Imperial quil aurait pu ltre. Mais une trs belle srnade une fois de plus.

TtV (448) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a lushly beige head. Aroma of malts, coffee, chocolate but not very explicit. The taste is good, but again not too explicit. I can taste chocolate, coffee but the typical Troubadour taste is also present, which gives it a sharp bitter aftertaste.

0.3 bottle. Dark brown, beige head. Nose is fruity and malty. A hint of light roasted coffee. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste is sweet, with toasted malts, licorice, coffee. Strange, for an imperial stout, but enjoyable.
