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.

jamesie1857 (1780) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
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.

TBone (14899) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2014
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".
