Named after Jim Wolfer from Prairie Rock who let us borrow his lager yeast, Black Wolf is brewed in the style of a German Black Lager or Schwarzbier (black beer). It has a small amount of dark and roasted malts added to the grain bill to give it a distinct, yet not overpowering roasty aroma and taste. At 5.5% it is easy drinking and has a pleasant crisp lager finish. Try this black beer and be surprised by a different kind of one of those "dark beers."

Served with a deep, ruby hued black/brown body under a tan head that held as a thick film. Roasty, husky, nutty aroma with whiffs of alcohol that increase as the beer gets low in the glass. Mid-bodied with a consistently bitter flavor that finishes on a sour, milky note. Lagered undertones to a roasty, almost smoked base of malt. Worthy of a second glass.

Draft. Spongy brown head that disappears quickly, over a deep brown body. Basic lager smell with just a hint of dark roast grains. Taste has a bit of pizza dough aspect to it, but barely, and it helps here. The dark malts add mostly to the bitterness underlying the decent lager taste. Toward the end I get a bit of coffee and somehow, a suggestion of whiskey.

Black bodied with a tall, rocky tan head that does some serious lacing as it settles down in chunks, this schwarzbier has a lightly roasted, sweet malt aroma with a hint of smoke. Perhaps a bit thin for the style, it nevertherless delivers a smooth taste of roasted malts, a daub of chocolate, and a light bitterness of Hallertau hops in the finish. A good sessionable lager from Matt and Andrew.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Great looking pour...black as the ace of spades with a huge rocky long-lasting head. Rich roasted smoky aroma. The flavors are all arrayed on the dark, smoky, roasted side of the scale, plus distinct chocolate notes. Lightly carbonated and easy-drinking, although slightly thin-bodied. I thoroughly enjoyed this experimental effort by my two favorite brewers, Matt and Andrew.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2008 pours black with a nice thick tan head. no aroma. there’s a woody, smoky flavor, but nothing else i can pin down. althought the beer itself is not thick, it seems to finish thickly in my throat. overall, not a great entry in the flossmoor stable of beers.
