4.8/5 rDev +20.9%
Had on Tap at Galway Arms in Chicago.
A) Black with red hue when light is shining on it. Two finger light mocha colored head and lacing.
S) German malts, dark bread, coffee, lagering yeast at the end. Not hoppy at all for a 3F beer.
T) Chocolate, roasted bread, coffee finish, mild hops my guess Hallertau or Saaz?
M) Smooth and thin no bite. Great with a Burger for sure.
O) 3F's second best Lager to Munsterfest. Wish they bottled this one and the chick that brews this is smoking hot.

Das Kleine Schwarz Einhorn, aka, Black Unicorn, is a delicious Schwarz. I had it on tap at Acre in Andersonville. One of the best American-made Schwarzbiers--maybe even better than Sprecher Black Bavarian, which has been my standard for years. A great session lager for the cold weather, and unforgettable with my Acre burger.

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.

I had this German raven on tap at the brewpub. Served in a stein with a 2 finger fluffy white/off white foam. Color is licorice black. Smells of a Munich malt and a bit of roast chocolate. Taste is very crisp, not overly sweet. A very nice malty body with a crisp lager finish. A very solid offering. Don't get hung up on IPA or big stouts from this group. They make outstanding beers in lesser sought after styles.
