She sure is a pretty wench. Nice deep body with a slight tan lace resting atop. Smells like caramelized malts With hints of sweet toffee. The taste up front is roasted yet sweet. There's an underlying bitter resin that coats your tongue and prepares it for the onslaught of unique nuances. The nature of this brew being quite sweet yet finishing bitter confuses the palate and leaves you hoodwinked to the notion of how high the abv is. Tread lightly young Knight, she's a rascal of a wrench! Be sure to warm her up first and she'll thank you for it.

To many people when raiting beers get way to technical. I'm going to give it to you straight. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this beer because I'm not a fan of beers that use a lot of hops that give a floral taste. I was pleasantly surprised with this brew from Middle ages. When you drink the beer you start to taste the ipa part of the beer and then you get hit with some subtle malt flavor that blends perfectly with this beer.

Far more inviting than the base Wailing Wench, this beer is has a fair bit to offer.

Double Wench has a pleasing dark caramel color. It is rather translucent but not cloudy. The nose provides notes of maltiness, though there is a distinct hotness from the higher ABV. There is also a distinct woodiness to the smell.

The taste is very rich, with a subdued hoppy bitterness at the finish. The standard Wench is more biting than the double, and I found the finish far more pleasing. While the higher ABV is noticeable, it is not off-putting. In fact, there is a real danger that the drinkability of this beer underlies the amount consumed.
