What a fantastic concept. This is a dark LAGER. Most of the flavor of a porter, but without the heaviness and a lot less bitter. I like porters, but sometimes you have to have a change. I will be buying more of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A $4 or $5 bottle had at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Appearance: Ruby. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Only a bit of lacing.
Smell: Malt. Roasty character to deem this a "dark" lager. Nothing especially interesting, but it smells nice.
Taste: Like the smell. A lot like it. A slight sort of coffee or chocolate flavor comes off as well, but itís in the background. Hey, I guess some roasting will do that to a beer, eh? Fairly high carbonation which is expected for the style. A pretty nice beer. Simple tasting sort of beer that you can drink without feeling compelled to think too much about what youíre tasting. Iím not the only one who does that... right...?

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Typical grape like aroma from the lager yeast. Sweet taste with a malty aftertaste.

A very dark color for lager. Not too much flavor with this one. Not bad though.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark amber brew with pale off white head, very good head retention. Aroma of toast, hints of teaberry and grass. Taste is sweet roasted malt and toast at the start finishing with more toast, teaberry, too little bitter and too much sweet. Ponderous, too sweet, and not all that tasty.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a small off-white head that fades fast but leaves some lacing. Aroma is ok, smells like a macro beer with just a hint of roast and smoke. Taste has some roast flavor but not much. Kinda watery and thin. Easy to drink but not enough flavor to make me go back.

Clear mahogany color. Tart but not bittter. Good flavor for a lager. Not too complex though. Some great roasted malt aftertastes. As someone else wrote: "Most of the flavor of a porter, but without the heaviness and a lot less bitter." Also a lil java flavor.

Dark with a very clean appearance. Holds a subtle coffee flavor and goes down smoother than a cup of java.

Poured dark and bubbly. This is my first brew from Wolverine and Iíve never been there despite living right in town. It smelled a subtle mix of grains with no hop. The flavor was a pretty standard lager but with more body. Iím not usually a lager guy (aside from mexican), but this was decent.
