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!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: a weird look, pours almost like melted chocolate. I've never really seen a beer like it and it isn't too appetizing. a small brown head that leaves nothing behind.

Smell: i get a very weird smell too, faint alcohol, spices associated with cooking pumpkin, and yeast

Taste: not like the smell but slightly better. opens up with a pumpkin/ yeasty taste. spices are fairly strong and unconventional. backend has some alcohol

Mouthfeel: a little heavy, not quite warming. not good drinkability due to the unconventional tastes

Overall: just an odd beer to me that isn't delicious. I love arbor brewing, but i don't like ann arbor's violin monster and I don't think this beer quite cuts it
