Notes/Commercial Description:
This is not your typical fruit beer and definitely not what you expect when you see its black color and tan head. This beer is extremely light in body with notes of chocolate and roasted malt and just a touch of strawberry flavor to balance the astringency; finishing clean and crisp. If you dislike fruit beer and dark beers – you need to give this beer a try!

Got the last 4 oz out of the keg at Rapture in Charlottesville, VA.

Thin creme head, opaque brown body.

Light strawberry nose, quite nice.

Ample strawberry, sweet, nutty malt. Slightly thin.

Mouthfeel a bit thin, but then this was the bottom of the keg.

Could stand to be a bit punchier, but still quite good.

This schwartz is very tasty. It is not listed on here, but has a modest ABV of 5.0%. What surprised me the most was how subtle the strawberry flavor was. It was not overpowering at all, and I only could notice it once I knew it was there. Very smooth and malty, but light and drinkable. My favorite schwartz so far.

From notes on 04/15/12:
Growler from the restaurant; Poured in a pint glass.

A - One inch of light tan bubbly head with decent retention; Very dark brown in color with a garnett hue when held to the light; Decent rings of lacing left behind

S - Plenty of roasty presence with a bit of chocolate at first and pretty faint strawberry; As the head settles, a light amount of chocolate remains with very subtle roasty character and a much bigger presence of strawberry - reminiscent of Fruit Roll-Ups with a candy-like sweetness

T - Moderate wet, leafy/green hops come forward, accompanied by light chocolate and caramel with a touch of toasty character; Strawberry flavor is pretty subtle at first, but strengthens as the session progresses where it becomes the main lingering flavor with light doses of metallic, leafy, and toasty flavors; Very light bitterness present with a touch of tartness and little to no sweetness

M - Moderate and zesty carbonation; A bit under medium bodied; Mouthfeel is wet, but feels just a bit too thin and watery

O - I was very excited to try this Wild Wolf offering since mixing strawberry and Schwarzbier qualities seemed like an interesting combination. The aroma turned out quite nice and had me thinking of chocolate cake covered with chopped strawberries and a strawberry glaze. The taste was solid as well, though it wasn't quite what I had anticipated after experiencing the pleasant aroma. In the end though, this beer was certainly worthy of a growler fill, and one I look forward to having again.
