rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, - JAN 31, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml meilleure avant le 06 sep 2015. Mme prsentation que la To Ol sans frontire avec le foil blanc sur la capsule mtallique. Merci Patrick. Bire noire avec une mousse beige. Au nez le brasseur a bien orchestr le tout, du chocolat lger avec une touche houblonne florale. En bouche leffervescence est quelque peu marque par un excs de gaz carbonique mais ce nest pas dsastreux. Aucune trace dalcool, cette bire se boit grandes lampes.

psilosophy (739) - 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 (445) - 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 (309) - 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 (2368) - 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.
