COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Forêt 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 !

Easily the most tart "stout" I’ve ever tried! The chocolate is a very subtle undertone. Had a very good pour & a sour aroma. Quite different!

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from La Cave à Bières, Yverdon-les-Bains
Black color with generous compact head. Smooth beer, with elegant body, pronounced sourness, and a light bread and lemon touch. I don’t think of it as a "chocolate cherry cake", but just as an excellent, dynamic example of sour dark ale.

bhensonb (12016) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Capped 750 from Healthy Spirits. Pours dark ruddy brown with a tan head. Aroma is cheery over a dark sourishness. Med + body. Flavor is tart cherry, chocolate, dark malt, and arguably some hop. Finishes rather tart cherry.

marcus (7183) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a chocolate and cherry aroma. There is a treacle and cherry flavor over a roasted malt base with a mildly sour finish.

Travlr (14702) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft. Dark maroon color with hints of ruby, off pink head. Aroma of red wine, plums, tannins, vanilla. Taste has dark fruit, port wine, toffee. Delicious.

Chocolate and cherry smell, just like "schwarzwälder kirschtorte". The taste is much more sour that expected. Very sour indeed :-)

AbouAli (187) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Couleur noir, nez avec des touches rappelant les krieks. étonnant à premier abord. Malgré l’acidité les malts expriment qqch et belle acidité en fin de bouche et étonnamment très facile à boire.

SinH4 (645) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Dark ruby/black color with small foam. Kriekish aroma for the start, just a little bit of chocolate behind there. Taste is cherries, tart, and again a little bit of chocolate. Really a Schwarzwälderkirsch beer. Very interesting!

[ Keg ][ 10oz ][ Churchville Inn ][ $8 ][ Goblet ][ 9.21.14 ]
>> Clear deep cola pour with minimal foam. Ruby highlights. Nose is cranberry chocolate cake. Taste is sour stout all the way: great acid, easily enjoyable. Salty, super lactic, mouthwatering. Great leathery cranberry finish. Nom.
