3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Wonderful, clear, ruby red glowing, mahagony colour with average, creamy, fairly lating, minimally lacing, beige head. Grainy aroma, notes of oat flakes, a fruity touch of blackcurrant. Taste is dry, hints of oat flakes, very subtle sweetness, a fruity touch of red and black berries, a touch of cocoa powder. Leaves my slightly indecisive - nice fruitiness, slightly aggravating oaty dryness.

Pint at The Schooner Gateshead. Dark Brown, tan head, robust looking beer. Caramel & farmyard in the aroma. Yeasty bread and fruit&nut dark chocolate flavour. Palate was a bit claggy. I had to rush a bit, and I think that’s coloured my view. This is a lingering sipper.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 500ml (AbM)
Deep clear ruby-red color, small steady beige head, lace. Caramalty, grassy, burned sugar aroma. Light-bodied, suprsingly weak palate for this ABV. Flavor has similar elements than the nose: caramalt, grassy hoppyness, bread, toasted sugar. Too sweet and lacks decent bitterness for "wolf’s bite".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at SIBA BeerX - Rich reddy brown body, thick lacing white head. Nose is a fruity aroma like a fruit salad sweet... only stronger and a bit more savoury. Taste is a grape led experience with blackcurrants and more tropical fruit coming through. Smooth full body, lasting finish. Decent enough.
