Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
