3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
