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.

Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012: Trevlig rökighet, lätt smak - fina bräna toner, aningen söt men helt ok.

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Draught at Three Floyds Brewpub. Black - offwhite head. Burned, oiley notes, chocolate, high malty, herbal, ok hoppy, light bitterness, fruity notes, light smokey, light crispy, a bit too creamy for a schwarzbier - but a nice beer.

dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2012
On tap at 3F. Served in a clear plastic cup. Pours with an inch of frothy brownish head. Mild aroma of dirt and malt. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with some chalkiness and a tiny bit of tartness. Taste is exactly as a schwartzbier should be. Coffee-like, slightly musty, crisp and earthy... but all in a good way. Excellent schwartzbier. Hopefully 3F will bottle one and send it my way.
