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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Wow a German dunkle in ?merica. Is this freedom beer? God damn it is chocolatey. It is very close to the beer I enjoyed in Germany years ago with a little extra sweetness/chocolate.

On tap at CBC2012. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Smokey-malty aroma. Starts malty-fresh, modest smokey. Dry background with hints of liquorice. Well balanced finish. Nice!

On tap and perfectly paired with a giant pretzel and some sort of delicious mustard. Has a smokey lager aroma with bitter chocolate and refreshing, sweet grapefruit hop character. Pours a very, very dark brown, pretty much black, with a light beige head - great retention and lacing. The taste has a stronger grapefruit hop flavor and less smoke - refreshing lager body and slight chocolate. Really nice

If it isn’t the little black unicorn. A hell of a black IPA, I had this at Three Floyd’s in Munster in a dimpled mug. Crisp, fresh, and fascinating blend of hops, malt, toasted and spiced flavors. A great beer, er, bier.

On tap at FFF in a dimpled mug. Pours black with a thin light tan head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly malts. There is also smoke and leather. Taste is awesome. Malty, smokey, a little sweet and a touch of citrus. Thin and easy drinking. Really good.

This poured a medium to darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was nice lightly roasted malts, lighter grassy hops and light smoke. flavor was much the same, a great mellow schwartz, nothing intense, but incredibly smooth and well crafted. Great blend of dry light roast, smoke and delicate hops.

Tap at the source. Malt and bread aroma. Some sweetness. Toasty and smooth. A nice schwarz.

Aroma: touch of chocolate and roast, some bread, slight sweetness. Pours black, brown head dissipates to a lasting ring. Clean roast and light chocolate flavors, a hint of coffee, low bitterness, excellent balance. Medium body and carbonation. Nice example of the style.

Tap. Poured clear black color with medium brown creamy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium flavor of toasted sweet malt with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting solid brew.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth, lightly sweetened malts with a nice roast backing and a mild chocolate. Touches of dark fruit, grain, and caramel. Flavor is similar. Smooth, lightly sweetened malts with some chocolate and a light caramel. Medium-light roast backing with touches of dark fruits and grains. Finishes smooth and somewhat dry with a light roast and earthy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice schwarzbier. Very clean, lightly roasted, and well balanced with a smooth chocolate backing. Solid.
