3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark, chocolate brown beer with a thick beige head. The nose is distinctly sweet, and malty, with caramel hints, and an aroma similar to sherry. The initial mouthfeel is dry and fizzy! The taste is of bittersweet caramel and malt, with a slight grapey dryness in the aftertaste. (Bottle - purchased from The Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark brown with thick light brown head. Dark full roasted flavours which are subtle, yet full and complex. This was by far the best behaved and nicest of the wolf that I’ve had. Everything comes at the end. Carmel, hoppy flavour with chocolate and vanilla.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Bottle Conditioned. Same as Timber Wolf but with port. Adds a richer, sweeter quality to both aroma and - to a lesser extent - the flavour. [3.4]
And again... White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. Excellent. Subtle and complex flavours. A winner. [3.8]

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The previous review has it spot on - black grape skins are the over riding flavour. Fruity and dry this is decent but let down by it being a little cloying.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Conditioned. Deep ruby red, good fluffy head but slight over condition. Plastic aroma gives way to overripe grapeskins presumably from the bottle of port stuck in every firkin. The port is very obvious in the fruity body, but seems to mask other flavours. Finish is dry, fruity and short with surprisingly little alcohol apparent
