3.71/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- Dark brown colour, quite hazy. 1 and a half finger slightly off-white head, very thick and persistent

S- Not prominent. A sweet malts base and a slight warming alcohol feel, perphaps a touch of dark fruits

T- Sweet as the smell suggested, a touch of esters/spiciness, dark fruit notes, a touch of earthy yeast feel

M- Medium to full body (average for the style), smooth and quite creamy

O- Nice drinkability for the style. Overall enjoyable but unimpressive

Murky brown color with beige head. Aroma has some chocolate malt and yeast notes with a hint of apple. Taste is quite well balanced with toasted malt, light chocolate and earthy, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, medium to low carbonation. Really nice, easy drinking dark ale.

27th May 2012: On tap at the Lupulus brewery's restaurant, "Les 3 Fourquets"; poured into one of their 25 cl chalices after I'd had two glass of the regular 'Lupulus'.

This version is obviously brown in colour: well it's dark brown with a big off-white head at the brewery.

Good mix of flavours in the nose and the tatse: malty and semi-sweet with a hop bitterness never far away, yeast notes also adding to the overall effect.

Glad I had one.

75 cl bottle

A: almost black with a big slighly off white head which leaves some nice lacing on the glass

S: understated nose, smells sweet, some red fruits and cinnamon

T: sweet upfront, a hint of raisins and liquorice and roasted accents followed by a nice medium bitter finish and a spicy aftertaste

M: smooth mouthfeel and rather full-bodied

O:a well balanced beer but the aroma and flavours are too subdued to be blown away, worth trying though

Now 8.5 % ABV
Poured into snifter.
Hazy dark brown with 2-finger beige head, not very long retention. Smell is not very attractive - rhubarb, faintly fruity and spicy, cocoa, rather sour. Taste - semisweet, caramel, chocolate, fruits, cinnamon, not very good portion of hops in the finish. Expectedly warming and still drinkable, mild carbonation, dense body.
