Matt Brewing Company’s Saranac Black Forest is what they refer to as a “Bavarian Black Beer.” Whatever that is, it’s apparently nice. There’s cocoa on the nose, a medium body, chocolately well roasted malts and a dry finish. This is like the light(er) version of a chocolate stout. It’s a very good beer, and the best I’ve had from the Saranac line so far.
I give it a 4 out of 5.
