4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Definitely my favorite beer of the Victoria BC’s Great Canadian beer festival This past Aug 2011. Pours very nice, and has a great head which clings and hangs around. The aroma has the perception of roasted black malts with a good sweet blueberry. The taste follows the same. Great balance of sweet and bitterness. Just the right amount of blueberry flavor. My fridge sees this bottle as often as possible.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds boatloads of ripe fresh blackberries. Mild roast and toast from the malt. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light acidic. Coffee and asphalt-like roast alongside blackberries. Citric hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is clean and soft with a medium carbonation. The roast and berries plays well together. Near medium bodied.

I love this porter. I was expecting something rather fruity and overly sweet, but the taste is mostly of malts, and it’s not overly sweet. Just enough blackberry to distinguish it from a conventional porter. Well done by the folks at Cannery Brewing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 almost purplish-black, small head, minimal lacing, ringed retention, micro and macro CO2, non-visible CO2 streams. Pleasant blackberry aromas on the nose. Smoky, slightly oaked, hints of coffee and trace amounts of blackberry flavour in there. Mids consist of coffee, nuts, and finishes with a medium-bittersweet long lingering finish. In the ingredients it lists "natural blackberry flavour". It certainly doesn’t burst with blackberry flavour so therefore - Doesn’t taste as advertised!! Overall it’s an okay beer with an okay flavour profile. Medium complexity, medium depth, low-medium carry (flavour fades and is watery at the finish).

bomber from savvy consumed 3/6/11.
dark reddish tinted porter color with a small pale tan head. some drippy spots of foam stick around later.
holy crap! it smells like blackberry pie filling straight from the #10 can... mixed with coffee, creamy ashy roast and charcoal.
the flavor is far less berry dominated (artificial?) ... though there is a bunch of roast, charcoal ash and chocolate. it is very dry and very fruity but nowhere near sweet. the medium body is crisp, ashy and all together easy drinking. 7/3/7/3/15-

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes, old rating. Dark brown reddish pour, big tan head.
Roasted malt and fresh blackberries on the nose. Initially a lot of blackberry flavour, soon complimented by a rosty malt body and dark roast coffee. Long, pleasant finish.
The really good berry profile makes this a fresh, easy to drink beer, and it is complex enough to stay interesting. Good one.

Pleasant aroma of....wait....you guessed it.... blackberry! Background notes of roasted/burnt coffee malt. Jet black with a thin tan colour lace. Full blackberry flavour with chocolate truffle. Roasted malt bitter finish. Great texture, silky fruit beer. Great to taste blackberry in a stout.
