JanEric (990) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2010
Red brown colour, reasonabel head, fresh, somewhat fruity aroma (berries,krieken), a bit peppery. Also in the taste some fruits, somewhat bitter, fresh. Medium-bodied, not that long finish but enjoyable.

Sten (625) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2010
White fast diminishing head. After a few minutes the beer looks really flat. Strange aroma, can’t seem to label it. But the flavour is better. Refreshing, sweet chocolate with some caramel hints. (Bottle 33cl 8,5% ABV in this version)

33cl bottle
The appearance is darbrown with a red shine and a rocky beige head.
The aroma has roasted nuts, chocolate, alcohol, yeast. The taste has notes of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, exotic fruits, caramel and a finish of bitter hops and wheat.
A great beer!

Vaiz (3317) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle at home. Very deep brown pour, thick creamy off-white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of dark malts, dark fruits, some cardboard, newspaper ink, plum and some vague nuts and licorice. Flavor is bitter licorice, slightly sweet but heavy malts, some more roasted malts in the finish together with a hint of coffee and more licorice. Very lively carbonation and a creamy texture. Very nice after all.

altonbrownd (3735) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2010

dEnk (3773) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2010
UPDATED: APR 25, 2010 Deep black pour, red glow when hold to a light source. Medium creamy tanned head. Aroma of floral hops, liquorice, spices, sweet fruit and plum. Awesome. Flavour is medium bitterness with coffee, smoke, peat, hops and liquorice, evolving into some sweetness with fruit, raisin and liquorice, back to a deep lingering bitterness smoothing out slowly. Reminds me of great trappisten quads. Very nice beer.

JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2009
Thickset, white head with a little brown shine over hazy brown beer with red reflections. Chewing gum, dark, very roasted malts, bit of sulphur, ink aroma’s. Liquorice, dark, partly roasted malts, near-cloying sweetness. Hint of salt/seaweed; coriander retronasal. Watery MF, absolutely not up to the 8.5% claimed. Disappointing, once more, for Lupus. SamC, you’ve told me better things about them... prove it.
