Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: zaphodchak on 09-22-2011

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!

22 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter.

Appearance: A short, light tan head with decent retention tops a dark, clear, red-brown body. Minimal lacing but nice ruby highlights when held to the light.

Aroma: Light, sweet, ripe strawberries float over a dark roasted malt base. There's a faint hint of chocolate and some alcohol esters.

Flavor: Hits the tongue sweet but enough hop bitterness kicks in almost right away, leaving a bitter-sweet flavor thereafter that still leans to the sweet side. Good use of strawberry which comes out immediately but quickly gets mixed in good balance with the hops and malts. Hints of roasted nuts and toast.

Feel - Moderate carbonation; medium body.

Overall: nice schwarzbier with judicious addition of strawberries. Neither too sweet nor too fruity.

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.

Poured off the tap into a pint glass at the "Bucket Trade" in Chester, VA.
Aroma- Has a nice malt and chocolate backdrop.
Appearance- A dark, dark brown color (almost black). Has a small tannish colored head.
Taste- Has a smooth malt flavor mixed with a candy strawberry flavor oh, and toss in some chocolate. A very nice combo.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a thin texture feel.
Overall- A nice brew, this is my first beer from Wild Wolf Brewing and I will try others from this brewer and drink this again.

Dark brown with ruby highlights, especially when held up to a light. The 2 1/2 inger tan head disappears quickly leaving almost no lacing.

Smell of strawberries, chocolate and coffee. At first, I wasn't sure if I would have been able to tell there was strawberries in it without it being on the label, but then the flavor developed more fully.

While strawberry dominates the taste. by no means is it overpowering.The strawberry is accented by a bit of dark bitter chocolate. Tart citrus and bitter peel with light metallics.

Rather light in body with a light prickle of carbonation as well. Somewhat drying.

Personally, I could have used both more strawberry and chocolate. However, I have to say, this is probably the most drinkable beer I have ever sampled. I could have downed more of these in a hurry.

High in drinkability
