3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle - pours dark, clear-opaque (!), black-brown with crimson highlights. Medium head, cream colored, with medium-bubbles, slightly lasting, mostly diminishing. Big, fragrant aromas of creamy cocoa, warm vanilla, slight malty spice, dark bread, and figs. Tastes of cool cocoa, malts, and more roast ones at the end. Slight disappointment from the nose. Palate is thinner than expected too. No burn though, at 8.9% this Wolf ain’t no slouch. Decent and tasty, would have again, but probably wouldn’t go crazy for it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Enjoyed from bottle. Very surprised to see the rating so low on here, but I guess that’s the funny thing about opinions. Probably the best winter beer I enjoyed this season. Very smooth, perfect for the cold winter night up in Massachusetts where I drank this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cola colored with an off white head that dissipates. Aroma is bready with raisins. Prominent alcohol note in the taste and something akin to oak. A little too thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour a dark caramel with very little head that does not leave lacing. The aroma is primarily of sweet malts. The taste pretty much follows the scent with the sweet malt really hitting home. There may be a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Very solid and goes down quite smoothly at 9%. Very nice winter brew!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Since I was in the area checked the brewpub out. On draft in a English pint glass. Rich chestnut brown color with tan head. Aroma was very malt rich; caramel, nuts and spices. Taste is malt richness and some warm alcohol. Heavy body is soft and smooth. A new LBC favorite next to their Milk Stout. Not bad.

Not a stout, but nice for people who like them. Deep, deep in color, malty in flavor, and malty on the nose.

Little aroma, pleasant raisin-like palate with caramel licorice flavor. Does not finish as well...
