RexTalionis (2617) - FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours darker ruby mahogny (or a bit like some old blood, yikes) in color with a white head. Fresh blackberries, notes of clove and sweet honey in aroma. Nice aromas indeed and they seem to be what the label promises as well. Later on bit of some earthyness and spicyness appears as well aromawise. In taste you get some sweeter indications from the honey but the blackberries are quite strongly present too. A bit tart mouthfeel. The spicyness is there as well, more of some clove and blackberries hits you towards the finish. Consumed the brew somewhere away from the sunlight, let’s see what happens next...but seriously, something suggests that this would be a good one for the christmas weekends.

Incredible flavor. I can taste the clove and it is not over powering, but blends with the orange zest into an incredible flavor that is out of this world.

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. No head. Clear dark red body. Sweet cinnamon clove blackberry aroma. Flavor of blackberries honey cinnamon and clow. Little hops (not surprising), low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Alcohol level seemed just right. Nice surprise.

StefanSD (2192) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy purple color with no head. The aroma is dominated by the cloves with blackberries in the background. The taste, like the aroma, is focused on the cloves but the blackberries play a prominent role and act as the foundation like a good malt base would. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and semi-sweet with lingering berries. Overall: Very tasty stuff.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
(bottle - 500 ml) Ruby red pour with very little head. Very light blackberry and clove aroma. Big blackberry flavor at the start with a subtle clove backbone and a lightly sweet but yet tart and dry blackberry finish. Really smooth.
