Since I am in the big easy, why not review a local brew. If possible, I might try to do several reviews from here.
Crescent City Brewery Black Forest
A very malty beer. Not as dark as say a porter would be, but a very deep dark red/brown. Very little hop taste, just enough for a slight hop finish. The more overwhelming smell is the roasted/chocolate aroma that spills over from your glass. This brewery only brews lagers, so you ale fans may want to stay clear. I plan on going back to review a few of their other offerings.
Beer rating: Very drinkable.
