Troubadour Imperial Stout (9%)

With strong roast flavours and a crisp bitter finish, this stout is brewed with barley malts for an earthy, chocolate taste with hints of liquorice and herbs.

Look: Hazy brown colour with a thick off-white head and medium carbonation

Aroma: Chocolate, liquorice, forest fruits and roasted malts, with accents of spiciness and light herby notes.

Taste: More chocolate, malts and liquorice in a medium- to full-bodied beer. Some highlights of spicy herbs, backed up with more dark fruits and slight coffee kick. A dry bitter finish with some slight alcohol warmth.

Verdict: A classy Belgian stout with spice and herbs layered over rich chocolate malts. Play on, Mr. Troubadour!
