Night Wolf is the darkest of browns with chestnut hes running throughout. A frothy beige head bubbles up to a finger in height and becomes creamy as it falls. settling at a meager skim coat. The foam coats the glass nicely and leaves behind sheets of lace.

The nose is fairly mild. A soft roasted malt is present followed by a roasty nuttiness that's a little reminiscent of peanut butter, which would be great if it wasn't so hard to pick up. Cocoa powder pops up as well, also barely there and there is an herbal hoppiness that seems a little out of place. The nose overall is weak.

Unfortunately, we have the same problem with the taste. Roast starts it off easy with a little coffee and some soft nuttiness. Nuttiness adds a little depth and while that odd herbal bitterness is back but more subdued than in the nose. Again, the flavor profile is decent, just so mild and ho hum that there's nothing to get excited about.

The weight fits in a touch below moderate with a nice frothiness and soft feel. It does feel a little on the thin side though. The bitterness rises with each drink, both hoppy and roasty, but never beyond moderate. It's an easy drinker but very uninteresting.

I do love a good schwarzbier but Valkyrie simply missed the mark. Night Wolf isn't bad but it certainly isn't good either. It's very lackluster. Not bad, not good. Worth the price? I can't decide.

February release. Label draws cues from the old Viking Mørketid label (Northern Lights), but adds a cheesy neon green $50 wolf tattoo design in the corner.

Dark amber in the light, mahogany highlights in the glass. Spotty minimal lacing around the edges, and a wispy skim across the surfaces that remains for a few minutes.

Roasty malt aroma, dry and mellow with hints of molasses. Flavor is similar, but is fairly muted. Light roast and tobacco traces. Watery feel, thin bodied. Overall it's decent but could use more flavor and substance.
