Saranac Black Forest

 
RATING
88

Pouring near black with slight ruby highlights and a foamy, tan head that dissipates as quickly as it rises, Black Forest unveils its inner lager with one deep sniff: A fruity, cherrylike yeast character and a slight touch of roasted grains comprise the nose. Smooth yet a bit watery on the tongue, a heavy dose of dry cocoa initially floods the palate, mixing with sweet apple esters and an assertive grassy hop bitterness that carries into the finish. While visually, this beer is a lager in porter’s clothing, its sweet, savory component makes it ideal for stout and porter drinkers desiring something lighter.
