VDuquerroux (1395) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. @Les Berthom, Tours. A very dark brown, nearly black, beer with a big light brown foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Light fruits (red berries, blackberry), herb, resin, roast, toast, pepper, chocolate. Light sweet, medium dry lasting bitter refreshing ; light warming baseline. Full body, average texture, light creamy, average good carbonation, fruity resinous dry bitter finish. Overall, a really good beer ! Nice toasty spicy bitterness ; good body.

BenL8 (89) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Almost black with a big frothy head which remains. Looks really perfect. Black IPA aromas; very hoppy, lots of chocolate and even more cocoa, dark malts and some coffee, quite complex. Even some berries, maybe raisins. Flavour: some hoppiness at first which quickly disappears. Cocoa is very intense, one can really taste the beans. Malt is not too intense, alcohol doesnt come through either. All in all flavour is mild. Finish is not too dry. Cocoa/chocolate lingers for a long time. Really nice beer, an IPA in the nose, not so much in the taste.

TheKernOwl (207) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
Smoked porter-esque (dried) coffee & bacon nose, with (chilli) chocolate and a little vanilla poking through. More candy and caramel in the body, along with grassier hops. Medium smoky finish. Nice mix of roasty + sweet malts, with hop backbone. Call it a Black IPA, a smoked porter, imperial measures or whatever. Its subtle, silky + nice. CAMRAs Good Beer Guide to Belgium (2014) notes that this muddle-hopped; that is, with all due respect (and that is a heck of a lot of respect, in all honesty), a red herring. This beer, and Magma (by the same brewers ), show that Troubadour are way, way beyond hobbyists these days.

eljebi (68) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2016
Cerveza bien oscura, con aromas de lpulo, malta tostada, caf y toques de chocolate y vainilla. Sabor equilibrado entre las caractersticas de la malta tostada y el caf y la amargura fuerte pero agradable, que se hace ms pronunciada en un largo final de lpulo. Una gozada!
