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.

On tap @ pub. Pour is very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma and flavor are both of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, and bread. Finish is a bit spicy and fruity. Very interesting.

Was excited to have a beer brewed by the first female FFF brewer and also carries Martellus Bennet’s nickname! On draft at FFF brewpub and served in a dimpled mug. Appearance is clear, dark brown with reddish highlights that show through when held up to Finding Nemo which is playing behind my sister. A two-finger tan head collapses pretty quickly to a cap and leaves a minimal amount of lacing. Aroma is roasty malt, brown bread, sugar that hints at caramel. Taste is malt sweetness with toasty and nutty notes. Some wisps of cocoa and bread crust. A light roasty and leafy bitterness comes on the swallow. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, ashy, bitter but abrupt finish.

Mug our at the FFF brewpub. Looks good for the style; cola with thin light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt and biscuit with a bit of roast and an average mouthfeel. Alright.

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.
