Opened the first one of these on Sunday. Its going to need a LONG time to carbonate, probably due to the really long (unintentionally long) secondary. I'll probably open another one when I'm watching Game of Thrones this weekend to give it another test.

After two weeks it did have a little bit of carbonation but not much (campaign for real ale would be proud). The color is definitely a tad on the dark side, but its a deep mahogany brown/black so I'll have to back off a tiny bit on the darker grains. SWMBO tried a couple sips and said she really liked the taste but will have to do a side by side with an actual bottle of Werewolf to determine how close they are.

I think the next time I will be using some rye malt and a tad more flaked rye. I personally think its missing that (in a good way) weird nutty bite the werewolf has, I guess that was the only flavor component of the actual stuff I have a hard time putting my finger on and what I would use to replicate that.
