3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this in cracking condition in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in February 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thick buff head. Smokey roast malt in the long aroma and creamy mouthfeel. Good lacing throughout. Dark malts give a maltloaf base with a slight toffee edge in the mouth. Dry hop note in the aftertaste along with oak wood tannins. Robust malt returns in the sweet smokey finish. An excellent session ale and my favourite so far from the Wolf portfolio.
