4.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Werewolf. Beautiful head. But smells like a black ipa. Russian stout with cherry raisin coffee and toffee flavors. Smells hoppy. Beautiful pour. Solid 5 appearance. Aroma molasses, cherry, and toffee but I thought it initially smelled like hops . I wish my nose was better. Werewolf is a 2012 and the good are a necessity for this rating. Buy fresh. You will appreciate it.

Taste at RBNG. Thanks Nate! Pours like black coffee. No head. Aroma of soy, caramel, date, raisin, a touch of coffee. Taste follows nose. A bit of grassy bitterness and coffee in the finish.

Fresh on tap. Love the hop character of this big stout; recommend drinking fresh as much as cellaring.

2013 bottle: Aroma is coffee, toffee, cocoa, with some finishing cherry and licorice. The taste is very similar to aroma, without a overwhelming taste of alcohol. Super solid, pretty high up there on my list. Can't wait to try again and see where it develops!

2010 bottle shared in February 2014. Black pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor both seem a bit oxidized. In addition to the big chocolate and roasted malt notes I get a bit of sherry character. There is also a good bit of alcohol and some creamy notes in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I waited a long time to try this beer, and while it was a bit oxidized, it was still very enjoyable. Glad I got to try it.

Love the 2012 release; it's a local beer with a huge following that's worth every boastful word. Huge, flavorful and delicious. (IMO: I hate the artwork on the bottles.)

Flaska från 2012. Trade (thanks STLWill). Känns åldrad trots 2012. Vinös, sötaktig, konserverade körsbär och lite pappig i doften liknande smakbild. Hade förvisso höga förväntningar men den här ska nog sannolikt vara bättre än så här. Övriga i provpanelen gör liknande noteringar. Oklart hur flaskan har förvarats sedan köp.

Black pour with a single finger espresso head. Lots of lace. Very creamy mouth. Aroma is full of toffee, nuts & coffee. Taste is sweet with chocolate, roast, fruit, toffee & molasses. This was a 2013 bottle. Glad they sent some of this to Chicago, because it is good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 bottle(Werewolf) shared by Hypo Luxa. Drunk from a Mikkeller tulip glass. A thick viscous inky black pour with a thick tan head.
The aroma is Savoury, mesquite kind of smokiness, molasses, toffee & soy. A meaty aroma. Smooth creamy mouthfeel on a medium body.
The taste is sweet, soy, sweet caramelized candied cherry syrup with some earthy smoke in the finish. Almost an earthy beef jerky. And light warming in the aftertaste. Honestly it is a really nice beer but too syrupy sweet for me.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick, rich, creamy head.
Deep bready yeasty Aroma.
Surprisingly light bodied! A little chalky.
Plum crossing into soy, smoke, a bit of heat. Mesquite. Caramelized cherries are hiding deep in the heat.
Is that beef jerky?
A very fun bottle!
