La Foręt Noire is a reddish-black ale brewed with a mixture of malts (Carafa, Special B) which give it real body and depth - a color and texture reminiscent of chocolate torte. The beer is then blended with cherry wine and fermented cherries, resulting in a dark, roasty beer balanced by the fruity tartness of cherry. A perfect after dinner drink. The beer was named after the famous Black Forest cake: a combination of chocoolate cake and candied cherry. Cheers !

Gurthnar (4553) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Many thanks! Ruby-brown colour. Quite clean fermentation-wise. There is lots of dark cherry in both aroma and flavour. The roasted malts are present, but in a very restrained, carefully balanced amount. Moderate sourness, but easy drinking with a full complex mouthfeel. Very good.

wombat23 (386) - Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Draft at The Avenue Pub, New Orleans. Almost black with short-lasting tan head. Aroma of tart cherries and a bit of roasted malt. Sour, tart cherry dominates the flavor, with a bit of chocolate and roasted malt in the background. Sour, acidic finish. Expected more chocolate to balance the cherry, but still quite good.

Hopmaestro (1146) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2016
Aroma of black cherries and chocolate with wet wood. Taste is dark and roasted malts with a cherry attack that takes over in the finish. Slight oaky and some raisins. In the aftertaste, the cherrytaste lingers for a while. Quite high carbonation.
