corkyrory66 (1918) - BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2017
Scottish ale de 6 % abv, qui se retrouve en old ale sur ratebeer (et il y a un peu plus d’un an, elle était en english strong .. ,j’ai les preuves !!, et peut-être l’année prochaine sera-t-elle en traditional ale, ou en scotch ale, voire éventuellement en scottish ale ??). Mais Dieu seul le sait, ou peut-être le Wolf de Badennoch le sait-il, lui qui est à l’origine du nom de la bière !! Notez que moi, personnellement, je me contente des brasseurs, et comme ils sont de Lossiemouth dans le Speyside d’Ecosse, je me dis qu’ils doivent en connaître un brin !! et comme ils l’ont classée en scottish ale, pour moi, ce sera une scottish ale ... Elle est faite avec du malt d’orge, du blé, des cônes entiers de houblon … et .. de l’eau du Speyside !! Je n’ai bien sûr qu’un regret, c’est que ce ne soit pas du whisky du Speyside !! Couleur noir aux reflets marrons, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun moyen, crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt torréfié, malt choco, chocolat, thé de tilleul, candi blanc. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle combinaison malt/houblon, et une pointe de fumée légère. Arrière-bouche avec quelques baies noires, une pointe de charbon de bois. 2ème à la texture superbe, et un ensemble aux nuances magnifiques. Arrière-bouche à l’harmonie splendide. 3ème à l’équilibre malt/houblon impressionnant, et une pointe de bruyère. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, fine pointe de genièvre. Longueur à la grande douceur de l’eau du Speyside, un malt lissé comme le plus beau des kilts, et des houblons en fleurs comme un corso fleuri. Jambes fines, longues. Levure un peu herbeuse, belle ligne. Alcool très correct, il est progressif, et aide les fines nuances à s’exprimer. Finale de très bon aloi. CONCLUSION : une belle scottish le long de la côte du Moray, je la vois bien cheveux aux vents marins .. Le loup de Badennoch n’a qu’à bien se tenir ...

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

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Very dark brown in colour with ruby red highlights and a thin tan head. It has rich currant, liquorice, chocolate and christmas cake flavours with burnt toffee and vanilla on the warming finish. A very nice Winter Warmer!

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 (175) - 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.

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.

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

[email protected], Copenhagen - dark brown pour with off white head. Roasted and roasted malty with some nice notes of cocoa, some caramel, dark fruit, light spice, new brewery for me, great first impression! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8
omhper (24963) - 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.
