Are you afraid of the dark? Don’t be. This is Michigan’s smoothest dark beer, a dark beer even people who don’t think they like dark beer will love. Wolverine Dark will win you over with a mild maltiness balanced by a crisp feel on your tongue and a smooth finish.

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

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has smooth dark grains with a bit of toffee and a light hay note. Flavor is similar with grains, bread and a bit of toffee sweetness coming through.

Keg @ Wolverine State. Deep brown with a tight head. Very soft nose. Gentle roasted malt. A touch of earth and grass. Drinks very smooth - light and easy going. Gentle roasted malt. Slight spiciness. Fairly creamy. Bright carb.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a creamy, off white head. Aroma of mild sweetness and roast. Flavor is crisp, dry, with medium roast bitterness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. This is pretty crushable. Clean finish.

I kind of like this. Lightly sweet and the malt reminds me of oolong tea. Light acidity in the finish.

superspak (6077) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt notes with some light hop presence; and good strength. Taste of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of roast/bready malt with light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice schwarzbier style. All around good complexity and robustness of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
