Pretty close to Rød Tuborg. I was almost crying when I consumed this one. It was like the good old days in Denmark. NIce balance between the malt and the hops. Nice and bitter and sweet. Great beer. LeRay (17) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 8, 2007
I’ve had this beer before years ago, but just went back to the C.C.B. this weekend. I wanted to try a few beers again and I was really surprised at how good this beer was. The flavor is great and I don’t think I ever had beer this fresh. Very good stuff! dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2005
Brown in color with ruby highlights and a small off-white head. Chocolate and nutty aroma with a flavor of roastedmalt and chocolate. jazz88 (2679) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Tap @ Brewery during a Jazz Fest weekend. Dark mahogany color with a laced brown head. The chocolate and malts made for a nice full flavor but not too thick. The malty aftertaste was balanced and enjoyable.

Black Forrest is a Munich Dunkles or dark lager by style, and it is a very good one in my opinion. It has a slight roasty character that has it pushing into the Schwarzbier or black beer range, but I would still call this one a good dunkle. Crescent City Black Forrest pours to a beautiful, bright, deep brown color, with a creamy tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is quite malty, with good sweet and dark malt aromas, and light touches of roast. The palate is firm with more good malt character. Flavors of sweet malt, nutty and slight roasty flavors coat the tongue. The body is quite smooth, making this a very drinkable beer. Black Forrest finishes with more sweet malt flavors up front, then ends slightly malty and roasty.
This is a very well done example of Munich Dunkles in my opinion. This beer was the perfect match with a dozen raw oysters shucked fresh right in front of me at the bar. Oysters and stouts are naturals together, the sweet and salty/briny flavors of the oysters play off the dry and roasty flavors of the stout. Munich Dunkles makes a nice replacement for stout, as the sweet and slightly roasty malt flavors worked exceptionally well with the succulent salty/briny ice cold raw oysters. If you ever find yourself in New Orleans, give the Crescent City Brew House a try. Their beers range from average to excellent. At the very least you will get some fantastic oysters on the half shell, and a very well done dunkle to chase them down.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh.
Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
