Ever seen a unicorn? How about a baby German one that's not white, but black? Well now is your chance to let one merrily prance across your pallet. This black German-style session lager is refreshing, crisp and mystically intriguing with its maltiness.

served on-tap @ Big Star, Chicago, IL, into a pilsner glass

Pours a dark brown color swirled with ruby red highlights. It looks like Dr. Pepper, actually. There's a small, fizzy white head here. No real lacing to speak of (I blame the glass).

This beer delivers a big surprise upon first smelling it: this is a Three Floyds beer and it isn't hop-forward! This nose is all about the malts. There's a rich, nutty aroma that structures the whole thing. But on top of that are porter-like roasted notes: chicory, distant coffee.

This is absolutely the best tasting black lager I've ever had. The roast flavors here are deep and satisfying, providing a nice bitterness to contrast with the nutty, toasty malt flavors. Some hints of cherry round the whole thing out. Fantastically balanced and flavorful for a session lager.

Overall this is the best Schawrzbier I've ever had. I wish I could drink this whenever I eat a burger or a steak. Seek this out and have a session with it.

The Einhorn...or black unicorn is a very nice marzen style beer. The beer poured a nearly opaque black with what light coming through being a reddish hue. There is a white head that is leaving sa lace. The scent and taste carry a fire place like smoke/roast. Almost can be described like burnt pop corn. There is also dark chocolate and maybe a hint of marrichano (sp?) Cherry. Mouthfeel is medium body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great marzen.

On draft at the brewpub. This arrived a very, very dark brown with a one finger soapy head. The aroma consists of smooth and mellow malt sweetness with an ever so slight roast and a touch of minty spice. The flavors are of light chocolate, grains, light roast, and cream. It is exceptionally smooth and sessionable. I really like it. It's definitely a beer you could drink for awhile. Excellent schwarzbier.
