Growler from the brewpub. Pours a near black color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, a faint bit of green apple. The taste is roasted malts, coffee, bitter hops, mild green apple note. Thin-medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Wild Wolf and it’s Dry Stout. Wild Wolf has by far my favorite stout in Brew Alley Virginia. When you first see the stout it has an awesome awesome dark color. Unfortunately the head is a bit lacking and not quite as thick as I would like it. It also doesn’t have a strong smell to it, chocolate/coffee/roasted hops, anything. So I’ll have to deduct a few points there. The taste however greatly delivers! It is absolutely delicious and I could drink it all day. It is slightly hoppy, but with a smooth sweet buttery finish that I love. The carbonation is slightly lighter than their other beers but that is expected and spot on. Overall this is a great stout and Wild Wolf should be proud of this one.

12oz can into a pint glass.
Pours pitch black with a very large, billowy dark tan head. Lots of crusty lacing clinging to the sides of the glass and the head persists over halfway through drinking the glass. Very impressive.
Aroma is milk chocolate along with some roasted malt and a hint of metal. Nothing really off-putting but not extremely impressing either.
Light milk chocolate on the flavor along with a touch of fruitiness from either the yeast or the hops. The roast is a little bit subdued and there is a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel is very silky but doesn’t finish quite as dry as I was hoping leaving some stickiness on the lips.
Overall, a quite impressive beer from a brewery I have never heard of. I could put back a few of these.

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Taste is roast, coffee, and hints of chocolate. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Wild Wolf Dry Stout finishes with a smooth chocolate sweetness.
