In this beer blog, we are going to get into another Lager from Wolverine Brewery. It is their Dark Lager. If you read my earlier beer blog post on this brewery, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not read it, please, read that beer blog post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It had a clear dark brown color with a nice snow-white color head. The smell is burn to roasted malt. The taste has chocolate to slight coffee malty notes with a crisp chocolate like finish for the aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable dark lager.
Here is a desecration from their website (www.wolverinebeer.com):

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.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, this craft brewery out of Ann Arbor, Michigan is quickly becoming my favorite craft Lager brewery. I am a fan of their IPL (India Pale Lager). I have always loved imported dark or black lagers. I was interested in getting my hands on this brew from Wolverine Brewery. I love the color and tone of this brew. I love the aroma it kicks out from the beer. This brew is pretty drinkable for being a dark beer. Most general or all beer drinkers think a dark beer means it is a heavy beer. This is urban legend in the beer world. It takes time to pass this on to the beer drinkers of the world. The point I am trying to get across is just because it is a dark lager that does not mean it will drink heavy or light. Most dark beer could drink easier than a golden color beer. It is smooth and drinkable. I highly recommend this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
