American Dark Wheat Ale |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
A geographical approach to the werewolf legends results in identification of a major werewolf area stretching from mid-Germany into the Netherlands and Belgium.

With this in mind, we have created a strong, dark, spice ale using ingredients from those regions.

Brewed with Midnight Wheat, warming spices, and a hint of brown sugar, the Violin Monster is black as night and packs a punch at 9.5%.

Unleash your inner beast with Violin Monster Dark Ale, but beware...it finishes with a bite!
Awwwooo!

Nice label art! Who knew that mythical carnivores had a soft side?

The beer appears black with a thick, fizzy tan cap. The aroma brings autumn spices, to include cinnamon, nutmeg. Additional notes of pie crust, squash, malt, brown bread, raked leaves, footballs, flannel. The flavor follows the aroma. This is pretty tasty! Grandiose spiced profile without the customary cloying sweetness. Although the abv is approaching double digits, the drinkability is just fine.

Man, I've been using this organic deodorant and this hit ain't cutting it. I just took a shower a few hours ago and I smell like a bunch of adolescent boy scouts at a jamboree. Gonna have to change it up.

Anyhow, this beverage is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chocolate pumpkin pie. Some English porter characteristics. A solid beer. I'm drinking this out of season because your mom.
