Bottle. Cola pour with a generous mocha colored foam head. Aroma holds the middle between Speciale Belge and an abbey double. Prune, dried apricots, pepper. Licorice permeates. First sip is very metallic, copper. Subsequent sips remind of a stout, but a little fruitier (apricots, mocha, hint of coffee). Bitter, creamy development. Aftertaste is stout, prune. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB Apr 2016, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, big frothy light brown head. Aroma of caramel, spicy yeast, bit peppery, coriander, bit fruity. Bit dry in taste, slight sweet, some wheat notes, high fusels, alcohol, soft bitterness. Bit high on carbonation, although it could fit the style. I was pleasantly surprised by the Wolf 7 and 8, but this one is dominated a bit too much by yeast and alcohol. Ok, but prefer the other ones.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
kleur: amber met flinke dikke schuimkraag. geur: fruitig peer en kruidig. smaak: fruitig, en daarna scherp kruidig.
Begint goed, maar de kruidige nasmaak vind ik niet geweldig. Alcoholpercentage is merkbaar hoog
