4.2/5 rDev +5.8%
On-tap at Hopleaf. Standard pint glass.
A - A light tan foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind plenty of splotchy lacework. Dark brown body.
S - A great combination of roasted malts, chocolate, yeasty bread, and sugary sweetness. Perhaps a touch of nuttiness. Potent aroma, particularly for only 5.5%. Reminds me a little of Moonlight Death & Taxes.
T - The taste quite similar to the aroma, but there's a touch of chalkiness in the finish that detracts from the enjoyable melange of roast, cocoa, sugar, and bread. There's a low level of roast bitterness that lingers.
M - Dry and roasty texture, medium body, moderate carbonation, and a chewy and mildly sticky finish.
D - I found this to be a stronger offering than 3 Floyds' previous schwarzbier (Ich Bin Schwartz Genüg Für Dich?). I had no problem putting down a pint of this one, and it's a beer I'd happily return to during the course of an evening out.

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.

Pours standard for a Schwarz, very dark ruby, nearly opaque, with a nice little wisp of a white head.
Smells surprisingly light--nodes of big, burnt malt rub up against some chocoaltely sweetness. It's a nice balance, but pretty standard and faint.
Tastes much bigger and more adventurous. Starts dry and ashen with big, bitter nodes of dark roasted barley. This moves into a warmer, lightly sweeter middle which veers gorgeously into a medium hoppy finish and a wonderful aftertaste of ash and peat. Excellent balance all throughout.

On-tap at FFF.
A - Pours a darker brown color, off-white head, thin ring, spotty lace.
S - Very malt-forward, nice toasted bread notes, light caramel, brown sugar. Really nice malty sweetness and light toasted notes...quite excellent.
T - Similar to the taste. Excellent sweet maltiness, brown sugars, light caramel, toasted breads. A nice mildly sweet lager, nice malt-backbone. Finish is sweet with an ever-so-light touch of bitterness, perhaps more dark chocolate then anything.
M - Light, good carbonation, smooth and refreshing, clean finish.
O - Another excellent German larger from FFF. Almost more of a traditional take on the style, with less hops then I would expect. When all is said and done, I really enjoyed this beer and would have it often when at FFF. Recommend.

Swung by the brew house for some beer and good times (success in both accounts). Be arrived in a Stein. Poured black as night with reasonable head streaky lacing at best. Nose is spot on. heavily rotated smoked malt, the peat is there but dialed back quite a bit. The flavor is also spot on. One if the best smoked beers i have ever had. Light and easy drinking and not polarizing at all. Just wonderful.

On-tap at the 3F brewpub. Poured into a dimpled mug.
A- Pours a dark brown with a finger of creamy light tan head.
S- Big malt bomb. Lots of toasty, slightly burnt bread, maybe some chocolate and sugar, I'm definitely getting some hazelnut.
T- In the same vein as the nose, lots of smokey, sweet roasted malts, some more nut flavor. Finishes semi-sweet with mild bitterness. I'm also picking up on a slightly buttery flavor (diacetyl?) like a piece of charred buttery toast.
M- Light to medium bodied, good carbonation, mostly clean finish but leaves a bit of malt texture on the palate.
O- A pretty tasty beer, the malts are huge and very complex. This is definitely worth a shot if you stop by the brewpub.
