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

Pours cola with limited head and minimal lacing. Nose is berry with a hint or roasted malt. Notes of berries, some light coffee, some bitter earthy hops. Taste is light/med sweet and light bitter. Light body with medium carbonation. Nice beer.

pours clear brown with a decent of-white head, some retention. roastiness and slightly burnt caramel with a quite nice dark fruity and discernable presence - berries for sure, touch of spices and minerals. average carbonation, light body - some texture, bit of sweetness. well done fruity porter.

Pours a very dark brown letting some light through and a small light brown ring around the glass with great legs. Aroma is blackberry fist and formost, roasted malts, sweetness and cocoa follow. Flavour is a more tart blackberry, roasted malts, cocoa, a bit of alcohol harshness when colder, smooth when allowed to warm up a few degrees and a mild bitterness. Great balance on the flavour, this is my kind of fruit beer!

Faint ring of head. Light carbonation. Sweet blackberry smells mixed with vanilla malts. Nice berry start fades to malt with a touch of sweetness left in the mouth. Distinct, but not complex. True to its name and style. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

Blackberry juice aroma, with a bit of dark malt as it warms. Black and translucent, nice mocha head. Taste is interesting, kind of unexpected from the aroma. Most of the blackberry flavor comes through in the aftertaste, on first tasting get some roasty malt. Not much hop bitterness, fairly short finish. A bit thin, higher than average carbonation. Not bad.

Draft at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver. Very little head, dark in color, lots of lacing. Blackberries not so much there in aroma, but huge in finish. Rich, malty body, really enjoyable. Long finish leans heavier on the hops, but this is overall a really well-balanced beer, high on the complexity. Really the absence of fruit in the aroma should be seen as a good thing, as the overall taste of the beer comes off as a bit less sweet without, and more of a surprise. If you don’t mind the idea of fruit in your beer, this is one to look for!

(bottle) clear dark brown colour with small brown head; aromas of sour fruit, flavour of sour fruit; little to none porter character, more like bad sour fruit juice

Once I opened it I could smell blackberry juice smell from a distance & that kicked ass. But bottle to nose showd some roasted bitterness smell. I used my tall hobgobline glass & recived like a 3 finger bubley cola brown head that seemed like it was thick(IDK)and lasted. Black beer but to light some dark red to it and thats when you can see throw it a bit. Taste is blackberry like juice that slides all the way throw and then is mostly gone but stays in a sourish after taste,I also got all this roastedness,chocolate taste & some bitterness. Sits a bit heavy/full in belly from the hops. I can enjoy fruit beers and had other fuit porters b4. Fan of porters and this is not blowing me away taste wise like the 1st smell but still a kick ass easy driking yummy brew cheer’s! :)
