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.

corkyrory66 (1431) - BELGIUM - APR 5, 2014
Bière bien habillée, avec cadrage couleur bronze de l’étiquette, et le gros chiffre 8 en bronze. Toute la capsule en bronze sur fond noir. Le titrage réel est en fait de 8,5 % abv, ce qui en fait une brune solide. Couleur roux à bordeaux très foncé magnifique. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes très vives partout dans le verre ballon. Mousse beige moyen très épaisse et à multiples cratères : superbe. Arômes de malt caramel, whisky du grand nord est de l’Ecosse, pointe de câpres, muscade fine, myrtilles en début juillet. 1ère bouche souple sur un bel ensemble malt/café/chocolat noir, avec une épice. Arrièr-bouche maltée forte, avec du tabac brun. 2ème sur du malt, fruits un peu verts, pointe de tabac blond cette fois, marmelade de pommes vertes. 3ème bouche assez complète, mais un peu « fermée ». Arrièr-bouche maltée, longue. La longueur est sur du malt torréfié, fruits juste mûrs, pruneau jeune, puis des oignons confits, du malt brun, de l’écorce de chêne. Une amertume assez raide, mais très plaisante. La levure est fine et douce, alors qu’on la croirait plus « musclée ». L’alcool est bien efficace de le soutien de cet ensemble très ferme. La finale se développe avec une grande complexité, des malts bruns, des épices pointues. CONCLUSION : une bière assurément rude à apprécier. On dira plutôt pour connaisseur, parce que ce n’est pas une bière « facile », mais c’est une belle bière.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2013
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.

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2013
Bottled from local Mitra. Clear dark brown color, thick creamy brown head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast, red fruit like grapes and cherry, raisin, grapes. Some biscuit and cookie as well. Taste is quite sweet, but also dry. Again I get a lot of cookie maltiness and raisins, like in the best of the Abt beers. I suspect loads of special B malt. Finishes slightly bitter even. Soft alcohol burn, but very well hidden. This is seriously a great brew in tradition of the best of dark belgian strong ales. Top notch.

zacgillbanks (4540) - 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!

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 Butelka, warka do 27/02/2016 (chyba 2016 - zamazane). Cimne, z ladna i zaskakujaco jasna piana, wysoka, zostajaca do konca w postaci korzuszka. Aromaty w pierwszej chwili - z butelki - drozdzowe, pozniej, po przelaniu glownie karmel, cos, co mozna nazwac prazoną dynia czy czyms w ten desen (bardzo przyjemne), lukrecja a moze marcepan, troche czekolady, troche jakiejs slodkawej owocowosci, nieco orzechow. w smaku ewidentnie slodkie, ale w fajny, lukrecjowo-owocowo-karmelowy sposob. lekka, ale wyczuwalna goryczka, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Ta specyficzna nuta prazonego czegos w polaczeniu z lukrecja jest dosc unikalna, jakos nie czulem jej w innych ciemnych, mocnych belgach, a jest faktycznie bardzo fajna dla mnie, byc moze dlatego tak pozytywnie odbieram to piwo - w kazdym razie dla mnie super, choc wierze, ze trzeba lubic slodkie na granicy przeslodzonych piwa, by to pasowalo :)

druga butelka z tej warki nie wydala sie az tak zlozona, niemniej wypita z wielka przyjemnoscia. ocena ciut w dol.

Bottle split with Ma J at The New Penguin, 19/09/15. Mahogany utterly heaped with beige. Wonderful soft oak, lactic chocolate, weird delicate spice, juicy plum and nectarine nose. Elegant and mellow with suggestions of chargrilled bell pepper, cocoa-dusted oak, plum, prune and caraway-dusted nectarine. Trace of aniseed. Booze brilliantly concealed. Praline softness to finish. Wow. Long time since I’ve tasted anything like this.
