A- More brown than black, dark body with a thin light tan head.
S- Mild malt aroma, with a hint of roast.
T- Malty, some caramel, some char, somewhat sweet from the malt.
M- Lighter body, medium carbonation, not all that thick and drinks like a medium lager.
O- A decent entry level beer for the style, but nothing that stands out.

Pours a darkish liquid. Not a heavy looking "black beer" though. In fact color is kinda "light".
Smell is kinda weak. Hardly overpowering at all.
The taste at first blush was nothing memorable but the after-taste was quite nice.
Not to be confused with Saranac "Black & Tan", this "Black Forest" is superior for sure but the alcohol content is really kinda weak.
The variety pack i purchased only provides 1 Black Forest of the 6. feels like an autumnish beer.
Like I said, it really could really use more alcohol for sure.
