Notes / Commercial Description:
A very rich, heavy bodied, dark golden brown beer. Malty sweetness is balanced with delicate hop bitterness and a sherry-like aroma. Perfect for savoring slowly on a cold winter day: as the beverage warms, the flavors and aromas intensify.

Had this one a while back... reviewed from good notes... Wolf was a pretty cool guy and very accommodating, even opening up a couple hours earlier so the wife and I could enjoy some fantastic brews when we were passing through. I wish you guys the best.

Pours a deep amber... great tannish head and lacing galore.

Nose is a very Americanized BW... bunches of piney hoppiness combines with plenty of caramel maltiness and hints of toffee.

Flavor is not as bitter as expected... but there is still a nice hop presence mid palate through the finish.... the malts are mildly sweet... caramel essence and dark toast...

Nice full/medium body with medium carbonation that just helps me want another sip.

4/4/4.5/4/4.5

Edit: I would love to see you guys make it over to Boise.... I think you would make a big splash.
