COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2007
On tap at Flossmoor Station, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a dark black with a thin, quickly fading, light grayish/tan head. Very little lace was left behind. The aroma of the beer was made up of cocoa, light roasted malts, and also some light yeast. The flavor was mainly light roasted malts, with some caramel and chocolate at the finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with minimal carbonation. Another winner from Flossmoor.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 I dont know about some of these ratings but this is what i received on tap.pours a black medium body with a huge tan head must have been just tapped. Aroma was a faint smokey malt and flavor was smokey malt with a faint hop flavor. Very different to me but in a good way very smooth taste, i guess thats why i picked up a growler of it. A must try!

Growler from Rayboy. A nice looking dark pour on this one. A good amount of roastiness make this one a fine brew to welcome the Fall. Very sessionable for a dark beer.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2007
On tap, 9/22 at the brewery. Very dark color with some short lived tan foam, no lacing. Lots of dark malt in the aroma, very sweet smelling. A bit too thick in the mouthfeel for a Schwarz IMHO, almost resembles a hefty brown ale, lots of esters, not very lager like to me.
