A beautiful blood red coloured, full bodied beer. With a medium bitterness and a fruity blackcurrant aroma coming from Williamette hops.At 5.5% abv. This really is beer with bite!
A Strong Ale brewed in honour of the infamous Wolf of Allendale, that terrorised and killed about 40 sheep in December 1904. Killed by a train, yet sightings of other fearsome beasts still abound in the area.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with a lacing, off-white head. Caramelly, butterish aroma. Medium body, rich, sweet caramel and toffee, only a little late hops. I guess the diacetyl is technically allowed in this beer, whether or not you like it is a different question. 121016

AndreasP (119) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2016
The Allendale Wolf I am drinking is labelled strong ruby ale and has an abv at 5.5. Nice malty aroma with toffee which is almost gone in the taste. Watery, no hops and hardly any bitterness. Disappointing

I_LUV_BEER (196) - - APR 24, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500 ml bottle. Pours clear deep ruby-brown colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is a pleasant combination of malts, dark fruits, caramel, bread and raisins. Taste is pleasantly fruity with notes of dark fruits, raisins, bread and notes of caramel malts but without sickly sweetness. Very smooth with medium carbonation and a pleasant light bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable and extremely enjoyable!
