German for Black Forest Gateau, this brown-black beer is lighter bodied than a traditional stout or porter but has intoxicating cherry and chocolate notes.
Aroma: Swirl it around in the glass to release the heavenly aromas of cherry, forest fruits and dark chocolate.
Taste: Instead of being over-sweet, the cherry sourness is carefully balanced with roasted malt and subtle notes of chocolate, giving an easy drinking beer. A dry, slightly bitter finish complements the aromas of fruit, to leave you wanting more.
Food Pairing: This beer is the perfect accompaniment to cold game pie – or for the full Schwartzwalder Kirschtorte experience try it with few squares of good quality dark chocolate.
