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.

oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2010
Bottled (shared by brunnsbe, thanks!). Quite much pitch black colour with not too much head. Aroma is smoked, some dark dry fruits, mild ashes and berries. Also some slight alcoholic notes. Flavour is dark berries, some ashes, mild smoked notes as well as some roasted malts.

omhper (19383) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Bottled, from Kimberley, BC. Near black, rich head. Unsurprising aroma of blackberry and coffee. Midsweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Some salty tar mingls with the blackberry jam im a mid-bitter finish. Would probably have worked better with a more chocolatey flavour instead of coffee and tar.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
Draught at Amberjack Tap House, Surrey, BC
Black color, creamy head. Evident berry aroma, raspberry and blackberry, with a dash of roasted malt. Good body strength; strong chocolate flavor, some roasted malt, and a pleasant blackberry flavor; the bitterness is too strong. I’m not a fan of such beers, but this one is very well brewed.

harrisoni (13745) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle from BC Liquor store. Deep ruby colour with thin tan head. Fruity dark fruitsand dark malts on the aroma. Blackberry fruit in evidence over a rather thin body and then a powdery choc on end. Bit of liquorice. Some dryness on end.

Oakes (12629) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2004
Mahogany colour. Huge blackberry syrup aroma with coffee, nuts, vanilla in the background. Sweet blackberry notes bounce off of astringent, slightly nutty roasted malts. Certainly not seamless, but the combination is a natural. Finishes with the same sweet/bitter interplay on the palate. This beer is like best friends arguing.

bu11zeye (11943) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a dark mahogany body with a medium-sized creamy beige head. Aroma of blackberries, raspberries, chocolate, toastiness, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, berries, and chocolate.

Sammy (8665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2005
Tart, watery, not so enjoyable porter. Hey, just notvery drinkable. Too blackberry in aroma, and therefore I suspect artifical. Below average porter. May get through with a large multi-course meal.Bomber at Rudy’s in Buffalo on trade with Tim Freely provided by Mustang3.
