Wordsworth (147) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Hoppy and dark with a complex palate. Not as thick as it looks. It's like an IPA and a bock mixed together.

commonmac (1138) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle at de Trollekelder with commonshawn, rosskyle, dubtully, and samalito. Troubadour glass. Deep plum color with eggshell white half finger head. Aroma is medicinal and slightly soapy. Taste follows suit with dark fruit, maybe slightly sour, characteristics. A little bit of chocolate and toffee. Has some homebrew quality which is not a compliment. Kind of took a risk and it wasnt a home run. This one brings alcohol out too assertively to be considered high quality. Choose others.

Arcanor (309) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
33ml bottle, best before 2018-11-19. Pour dark brown with cloud. Aroma is of maderisation and roasted malt. Taste is malty and nuts. High carbonation. Long bitter finish.

psilosophy (740) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - FEB 18, 2017
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur cola, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Lgrement caramlise, elle n en perd pas pour autant son ct IPA, L alliance, russie pour le coup, du caractre torrfi de la brune, et du vgtal amer de l ipa sans que ni l un ni l autre prenne vraiment le dessus : un bel hybride. Trouve Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Echon (449) - rhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2017
Black. Light hoppy aroma, with a full malty, roasted and yeasty flavour. Somewhat hoppy and quite bitter, with a balanced sweetness. Full body. Overall, a good beer. An odd mix of belgian yeast, roasted malt and hops. Not sure how old it is so the hop flavour is probably more pronounced in a fresh sample. Still tasty, though.

nathanvc (312) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2017
At Bruges Beer Fest 2017. Pours cloudy black with an average tan head. Smells of coffee and chocolate, also found in the aroma. Roasted malts, and a herbal/fruity quality. It tastes medium to heavy biter and light sweet. Oily/syrupy texture, full body, soft carbonation, long finish. Complex, rich, and drinkable (despite the ABV).

Grima (2370) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle from Miorge Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium!!
Pours muddy dark brown with a small head. Aroma has roasted malts and chocolate, fruity hops are just noticeable in the background. Taste has more fruity hops, but the roasted malts, coffee and chocolate still dominate. Finish is roasty, bitter, dry ending!

A wonderful Black IPA by Troubadour. Great hops and it still has the Troubadour taste-signature. Loved it.

33 cl bottle, served in snifter. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, grassy hops. Taste: roasted malts, milk chocolate, roasted coffee beans, freshly cut grass, vanilla, caramel, bitter hops, spices, molasses. Nice balance between the bitter hops and the roasted malts. Medium body with a nice bittersweet finish. Very good!
