Bottle. An unclear, reddish brown beer topped by a finger-thick, light beige head. Prunes, dark sugars, some roasted malts and caramel in the aroma. Yeast too. The flavor has an almost unpleasant hoppy bitterness, else it’s more or less the same as the aroma. Full body, sort of too carbonated. Bitter, lightly roasted finish. Overall, too yeasty, and there’s also some vegetables. Not DMS, but green asparagus or broccoli. 130516

Bottle, 8.5%. Sweet and nicely spicy aroma. Hazy dark brown colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is sweet and roasted with a bit of metal to it. There is also a slight citric note in the finish.

Een bier met niet zoveel smaak aan. Dan is de Wolf 7 voor mij een lekkerder bier.

Tasty Belgian dark beer. Malty and yeasty body of course, with nice smooth notes of fruits, I think I tasted pear.

zacgillbanks (2260) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This beer explodes out of the bottle with a huge creamy head of foam. Dark Mahogany coloured with very rich red fruit and burnt currant flavours, chocolate and coffee notes with a bitter-sweet oak and roasted finish. Excellent!

Bottle at home. Red to brown with frothy tan head. When cold the alcohol came up front, better when at a proper temperature where it tasted balanced and sweet with a hint of caramel. Slightly bitter but would not think much about that. Enjoyable Belgian ale, enhanced chili/paprika dishes well.
