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.

Aroma is sweet rich malts and predominantly blackberry. Taste is sweet and slightly roasty malts with a very well balanced berry appearance, not consuming at all. Appearance is pitch black with a thin beige head that retains fairly well.

Bottle. Brune pour with tan head. Blackberry aromas. Schwartzbeer with blackberry, no dark malts to speak of .

Lovely lighter stout. The blackberry and cranberry mixture is a very nice flavouring however the sting blackberry overtones leave a bit harsh of an after taste. Works well as a desert liqueur in substitution of port or ice wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrFecesious (962) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Part of a bomber. Pours a deep brown with ruby edges and a generous tan cap that sustains pretty well. Amazing blackberry-forward aroma, with a balanced coffee note, and subtle but welcome hints of chocolate. Taste is a very good balance of bitter and sweet. Long dry finish from a low carbonated, silky mouthfeel.

exeter (306) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
The taste is an interesting mix of sweet, bitter and roasted flavours. Up front is the berry taste, sweet but mild. Next comes a touch of bitterness from the hops, and the lingering finish with dark chocolate. Nice easy drinker.

Rating #979 -February 15, 2014 - $5.79 CAD for a 650ml Bomber from Co-op. Pours a deep black with a bubbly tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is chocolate, roast malts, mild berry jam. Blackberry jam is highlighted on the palate, but doesn’t dominate the porter character of roast malt bitterness and toffee, cocoa sweetness. Very nice and understated for a fruit beer.

Solid porter with a light hand adding blackberry essence without overwhelming the beer. Roasty, malty, tasty.

Bahumat (120) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Tasty little porter. A little thinner and lighter than I like them, but the aroma is nice, a mix of coffee and blackberry. Appearance is a cola pour with next to no head. Taste is only okay; 6/10 here, beats the average beer but nothing at all to write home about. Gentle blackberry notes over a thin, watery porter. Palate is decent, if watery. Overall, 14/20. -- One good note is that this isn’t like some Wychwood Brewing monstrosity; the blackberry flavors are subtle and accent the beer instead of dominating no. No taste of artificial flavoring here.

A nice dark beer, a limitless on the sweeter blackberry side . Smells of roasted malts and if course , blackberry fruit. The taste has roasted malt characters and a balanced blackberry fruit taste. Sweet but not over the top. Makes for an enjoyable darker beer with an easy drinking characteristic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
