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 !

Jet black, large tan bubbled. Lightly citric at the front, tons of roast and cocoa, gritty. Slick body, tons of sour cherry and light acetic, more citric with contrasted roast. The roast is washed by the acid but the fruit is not the sole highlight here, bordering both styles evenly.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours thick dark murky brownish black with a gorgeous deep dark cherry red hue when swirled and creamy pinkish bright beige head. Flavor brings tart cherries blended well with roasted malts and wild yeast notes lingering I the palate.

Tap @ The Rover. Mycket druvighet syrlighet och friskhet i aromen. Smaken är desvärre mindre attraktiv, obehaglig syrlighet.

Fat på the Rover - doftar som en spontanjäst. Mörk som natten. Smakar även som en spontanjäst, dvs syrligt.

On tap in a tulip. Pours dark brown wit h a small, beige head. Aroma of tartness, dark malts with roast and chocolate notes, cherries and other dark fruits, and some spices. Flavor the same with a nice blend of dark malts, cherries, and the nice sourness. Average texture. A really cool beer.

3-4 oz draft pour at Of Love & Regret in a wine glass. Black with off-white and very slightly pinkish head. Aromas of wine, grapes, light funk, vinegar. Tastes of wine, cherries, vinegar, dark fruit, tart notes. Medium body with a dry and tart finish. Low carbonation. Tasty.

20140627 tap at OLAR. This one called to me from the list. Mahogany brown with Sunday tan head. It’s kind of dark in here, but it looks like a barrel aged sour should IMO. Aroma is brilliant: woody, bark, autumn, spring cherries, balsamic. Its light on the palate and yet mildly unctuous. Cherry skin acidity persists. Solid stuff.

Crushed with Jakebra.
Pours a dark brown with red tints. It’s got a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is chocolate & tart cherry like crazy. It’s earthy and roasty but the bouquet is totally dominated by those sour cherries. wow.

The flavor is as expected, lots and lots of tart cherry character. It’s earthy and dry with some chocolate and light roastiness. It’s sour, but not awfully so.... But man does it have some tart cherries.
The bottle claims it’s an Imperial Stout, I do believe this fits better as a fruit beer, wow that’s one awesome cherry beer.
