COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five carefully chosen malted barleys are combined with three superior hop varities to produce this traditional porter. Natural blackberry provides an exciting complexity to this easy-sipping wonder.

UXO (1497) - CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Appearance: clear ruby to deep brown with two fingers of rocky beige head, excellent retention and well-defined lacing. (5/5) Aroma: blackberry, roasty malts, chocolate and coffee, light booziness. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Medium-full body, soft carbonation, sweet and lightly boozy mild tart and bitter finish. (3/5) Might be thornless, but it sure as hell ain’t sugarless. Think chocolates filled with blackberry liqueur and you’re getting pretty close. But, other than being way too sweet, it’s not terrible. It doesn’t actually taste artificial, and the berry flavours work well with the chocolate, for pretty much the same reason people make berry-filled chocolates. It all ends up being a bit of a mess in the finish, though, with sweet, bitter, tart, and alcohol all fighting it out for dominance. I’m not sure what to suggest to fix that, actually, but I wouldn’t say no to another while I thought about it, so there you go. (14/20)

On tap at Central City Pub. Pours a deep brown amber. With a beige head. Aroma is rosted malt with berries and some chocolate notes. Taste is berry notes, roasted malt and even some cheeze on the background. Burnt malt aftertaste. Very good.

Sweet blackberries in the aroma, backed by thin hops. Lightly malty in the flavor, with a fairly light well carbonated body. It’s okay. Not likely a beer I would pick up again.

Dark brown color with tons of ribena and roster malt character. Very simple.

Ferris (12729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Draft - Chocolate and blackberry, just like the chocolates. Jet brown with a light brown head. Just as it smells with a hint of boozy sweetness in the finish. Think those alcohol filled dark chocolate cups. Not my thing, but exactly as advertised.

Excellent dark porter with a blackberry aftertaste. It has a large head when poured.It has a hint of chocolate and coffee. My favourite beer for the past 3 years.

Draft 10 oz pour at the Red Racer. Pours a purple to tinted black with an active fizz head. Slightly sour grape candy, mixed berry aroma and flavor. Chocolate raspberry candy bar flavor and finish. Jammy. Quite tasty for sure.

AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle. Poured a thin layer of brownish head. Has a dark appearance, a somewhat purplish hue. Good lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Blackberry flavours are abundant as well as roasted malts, barley, spices, subtle coffee notes, grapes. Yum. Getting barley type aromas, spices and hints of vanilla. very strong on first drink but settled in after a couple more. Would try again.

maley1 (1169) - Calgary, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
Dark brown pour with small off white head. Aroma of roasted malts and blackberries. Taste of roasted malts, faint hops, faint chocolate, sweetened blackberries and a slightly tart finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Straight forward stout with a bit of blackberry flavor, very simple beer.
