2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally reviewed: 7/9/09. I was wondering when we were gonna see some more brews from this brewery around these parts. Found a bottle at City Bev and grabbed it. Poured into my pint a deep rusty amber with a good 2-finger tan head on top. This disappears to little more than a ring around the edge, leaving no lacing at all. Smells of sweet bread, brown sugar, and a slight coffee scent.
The mouth is very wet and thin. I don’t like the weak feel of this. Flavor is pretty thin as well. Weak bready flavor mixed with slight nutty dryness. This sure could use some work, but nevertheless, I am excited to see more brews come out of NC.

Bottle. Decent aroma of mild chocolate and some nuts. Tastes of the usual nut brown ale affair...bit dusty, chocolate and nuts with a malty body overall. There’s nothing too great about this one, everything about the flavors are fairly common and nothing stands out. Not bad, glad I tried one to say so, but won’t grab another unless there’s lacking options at the time. 5.5% alcohol.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a moderate tan head that completely disappears before the second sip and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, malt and nuts. The flavor falls off a bit from the aroma with just a hint of chocolate, weak malt, and nuts. A bit watery in body. No bitterness to speak of at the finish. So so.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
A full flavored brown, Wolf Creek’s Timberwolf is fine example of a session brew. Replete with a coffee/chocolate aroma, earthy hops still show through. The initial sip shows dry powdered chocolate and ends with a lightly tangy but bitter bite. Medium bodied, this brown would pair well with any pub grub, but is interesting and refreshing enough to stand on its own. Well done.

Well, it’s a brown ale, so it’s brown. So far so good. Nutty, malty aroma, with some spicy notes. Flavor is...there, I guess. Vaguely nutty, some bready notes.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from god knows where. Pours a brune body with an off white head dissipating to what look like concentrated colonies of carbonation. Mild chocolate malt tones, nutty, caramel with a mild fruit character. Flavor seems not quite right inital apple tones followed by an abrupt drying mineral burnt coffee tone. Seems to mellow out more on the second sip feels a bit grainy and rather lackluster now, a fleeting sweetness gives way to a quickly drying bitter malt tone, that lingers slightly. Overall i’d pass on this again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown pour with tan head. Nuts and malts in the aroma, semi sweet caramel flavor but also kind of watery. Considering who brewed this I was a bit disappointed.
