This is the first beer that I am trying out of the 12-pack sampler and damn, am I impressed!

Pours out dark brown, almost ruby colored. The head is on the small side and quickly disappears. The scent is very subtle, a roasted aroma, kind of nutty. The taste is downright amazing. Caramel, nuts, and roasted malts. Goes down great and leaves a creamy feeling in your mouth.

An excellent brew by Saranac. I almost wish all 12 of the beers in the pack were Black Forests, but I am excited to try the others as well. This has quickly become one of my favorite beers and I would definitely get it on a regular basis. Highly recommened, enjoy!
