Sissio (538) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 27, 2013
A very tastefull dark ale. Aroma is really disappointing, but once you taste it you can find smoky, sweetness, malty, rough licorice... and everything you can think about

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Dark brown, rich burnt toffee aroma - quite appetizing. Fairly strong-tasting with complex dark malts, rich sugars, complex dark caramelized things like the top of creme brulee. One of the few Scottish Ales I’ve ever had in Scotland.

ReV2 (139) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from Glenmore shop. Poured mahogany brown, thin head, aroma of red berries and malt. Taste is burnt malt, fruit & nuts with a good hop finish and a warming sensation to the tummy. Nice, yes, very nice.

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2014
cask at number 27, inverness, march 2014. looks like a middling porter or 80,- but amazing whisky caramel nose lets you know you are in for something interesting...first taste had me thinking of duchess, maredsous and sour reds in general but that’s not really the right ballpark at all. very subdued chocolate which is nice for a change, allows the yeasty funkiness to emerge. only niggle is a slightly flat palate. the booziness really works in the Wolf’s favour. will be keeping an eye out for this one again.

Bottle. Pours deep dark amber. Chocolate and licorice nose, roasty. Nice bitterness with oaky whisky tones. Nice warmth from alcohol. Licorice aftertaste, malty. Bitter. My favourite of their beers. The limited barrel aged version of this is even better.

stravale (2052) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 2nd rate @ Skerry Brae [310113]...this is really good, super fruity dark malts, so smooth and the abv is so so so well hidden. 3.8 > 3.9 ... I’d love to taste their take on a stout or Black IPA....

Cask @ Skerry Brae, Lossiemouth 130113
Dark chestnut brown, clear, dense off white head good lacing
Aroma of caramel malts, soft dark malts, soft dark fruits
Taste of dark sweetish malts, dark fruits, raisins, hint of liquorice, dab of blackcurrant, nice dark juicy fruit malts, touch of jam, some bitter hops in background, no alcohol
Palae - Medium body, smooth, good mouth feel, fairly sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, fruity dark malts in the linger with a hint of roasted malt
Overall - A distinctive flavour in this beer - it’s very nice

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2013
Bottled. Hazy copper colour, mid sized head. Roasty and fruity. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Mellow flavours of chocolate and a shiff of smoke licorice. Long balanced bitter finish. Rich and harmonious.

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from Deeside Drink Emporium. It pours deep ruby with a small beige head. The nose is wood, earth, caramel, dark fruit and dried berry. The taste is dark fruit, faint berry, vinous, light jam, wood, earth, caramel, light astringency, some bitterness and touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and drinks pretty damn smoothly.
