COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Formidable Beast". What better way to toast the fall than to have a bottle of this formidable, dual character brew. At first smooth with mellow overtones of sweet berry fruit, a bite of bitterness suddenly cuts through, long, deep and lingering. Brewed with Rye Malt, it is naturally "blood red" in colour. Unlike the mythical wolf-like creature said to roam the bleak moorland surrounding Newcastle, this is real, so consider yourself warned!

Full-bodied, dark, heavy - tasty but a bit overwhelming. I would definitely have it again but it’s tough to have more than a few.

jsmerig (1246) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a brown red with a thin tan head. Aroma is sour berry with an earthy note. Taste is malty and sweet with a peppery roasted dark finish that does, in fact, come out of nowhere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

udfan07 (71) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2013
The aroma of this has a berry twist to it. It tastes a lot like the Browne Ale with a kick of berry malt in it. Would definitely have this beer again. Newcastle Werewolf is quite good.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma is mixed chocolate and rye spice notes. Med body, but then it thins quite rapidly. It’s ok. But not very bitter. It is dry, and arguably hoppy. Somehow it’s just not super.
