COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark brown bordeaux-coloured beer with a firm broken-white head. The aroma is pleasant, with some pear and roasted nuts. The palate is nutty, with some chocolate impressions followed by exotic fruit. This beer with strong character has a beautiful finish with some bitter hop and caramel.

Donkerbruin bier met grote beige schuimkraag. Aroma begint fruitig in de neus. In de mond bessen, mout, noten en ook een aardsig aroma. Ook licht metalig, maar niet storend. Voldoende complex om te blijven boeien. Smaak is medium zoet, licht tot medium zuur, licht bitter. Behoorlijk co2, maar daardoor prettig levendig. Medium body. Lekker bier.

Brune foncée, effervescence moyenne-faible, col beige foncé aérien. Malts caramel, métallique, un rien de réglisse, un rien de moka, un rien de fruits. Rien de bien neuf à l’horizon.

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a fast-dying slight head of tan. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, coffee, nuts, earth and some subdued vanilla. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and funk up front with a lot of earth, nuts, caramel and raisins noticeable. Aftertaste shows a relatively sweet flavour, but some deeper malt and figs coming through, all with a little nuttiness and a light cherry finish. Overall, a decent beer, but a bit mixed up in the style - i’m not sure what this is supposed to be, but i’d characterise it as an old ale or a traditional belgian ale. Great to sample, but not really worth bringing it back across the atlantic with all of the other options. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 01-February-2014.

Idiosynkrasie (3850) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with huge, thick, foamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Nuttily dark malty aroma, fruity overtones of red berries. Taste is initially minimally tart fruity, notes of red berries, slightly spicy yeasty overtones, a dry touch of fruit parings in the middle part, subtle sweetness with a chocolately touch close to the finish; controlled lively carbonation.

33 cl bottle @ home. Very dark brown color. Dense, rocky beige head with long retention. Aroma’s of sugar, sweet red fruit, toffee, alcohol. Less sweet & fruity retronasal, more caramel malty. Flavor is moderate sweet, dark malts, caramel. (A bit too) high carbonation. Medium bodied. Finishes slightly roasted, with hints of bitter. Nice enough.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem in Antwerp. Thx! BBF 07/03/2015. Pours a wine / pomegranate hued blackish brown with a big tanned / beige head. Nose is lots of sweet dark fruit, raisins, prunes,… light brown sugar, sweet spices & caramel, really lovely. Taste is faint molasses, lots of the same sweet dark fruits, cane & brown sugar, sweet spices, warming, caramel malts,… Very lovely. Carb. is a touch nicer than usual. Great example of the style & way better than expected, pleasant surprise & easily the best of the 3 Wolf beers.
