Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Scotch-style ale since 2009 with sticky, stable, moussy head and very dark bronze colour with chestnut hue, hazy. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, tobacco, dried leaves, walnuts, dates, raisins, chocolate and some DMS (red cabbage). Fruity onset (pear, peach) quickly overwhelmed by a sharpish coffee-like roasted bitterness, then shifting to a thick chocolatey, sweetish maltiness, creamy and leading to a mild hoppy and warming alcoholic finish. Very nice.

tricksta_p (1271) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, dark fruit, spices. Flavour is sweet with a dry finish. Good beer, but the Wolf 7 is more to my liking.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Bottled, i guess from biernavigatie.nl. Very dark brown colored, small but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, raisins, chocolate even, hint of coffee, reminiscent of Rochefort. Flavor starts with roasted malts, some licorice, then some caramel, sweet, but more bitter towards the end. Licorice and bitterness in a long lasting finish. A very nice example of the style. I’d like to see an "imperial" version of this once, which would really bring it close to the Rochefort 10 level.

Mainuh_man (219) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge, frothy white head that lingers. Strong aromas of bubblegum, plus licorice, wood, and yeast. Mild sweetness at beginning, with a muted, albeit complex flavor profile. Quickly goes through caramel to citrus/yeast and bubblegum. finishing with a long, yeasty bitterness, alcohol and cloying sugars. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Nice complexity on the nose and flavor profile. A good example of a Belgian speciaal bier.

milo91hd (132) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 22, 2014
Bottiglia 75 Cl, colere mogano con un cappello di schiuma fine e persistente, aroma di malto tostato e zucchero candito, al palato attacca in maniera abbastanza dolce con malto e cioccolato, i suoi 8.5 gradi non si fanno sentire. Davvero buona.

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
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.
