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.
Serving type: on-tap
