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!

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a sudsy white head and a slight bit of lacing along the glass. Aroma has some roasted malt notes along with burnt sugar. Flavor is alright but not as exciting or bitter as I hoped.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Reddish-brown, highly carbonated, but diffuse head. Nutty nose, moving toward hazelnut, and ensconced by berry fruit. Berry and nut flavors abound in the body. Body is thinnish.

Newcastle Werewolf has a medium, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly, copper appearance with a decent amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is odd: slightly-turned brown bread and berries. The flavor is of brown bread, a little bit of sweetness, some bitterness, and pecan shell. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Newcastle Werewolf finishes easy-going, drinkable, and dull. There is not much too this beer, sadly. I rate it just average. Try it, and see what you think. RJT

gunnar (5105) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from Vaaland. Pours clear dark brown with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of musty caramel. Taste is the same, best i can come up with is a strange musty caramel note, moderate sweet all the way to the short finish. Nothing to remember here.

Atom (1281) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle (from Dad’s beer drawer) pours a clear copper/brown with a medium white head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel malt, with faint hints of rye. Taste similar to aroma with some medicinal rye bitterness on the finish.

11-OCT-2013, bottle @home, from Netto. Nice clear amber with tan head that resides quickly leaving a few laces. Bready aroma with fruit, rye bread, caramel, and bitterness. Taste the same. Quite dry. thin bodied, medium carbonation, short bitter finish. OK.
