3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013.12.01 - Dogfish Head Black & Blue - 750ml bottle in goblet glass. Bottled 2011.
Aroma: very enticing, as you'd expect it's fairly neutral with grape-like berry aromas.
Appearance: Pours around 12 on SRM scale. Light to medium copper orange, maybe the color of some barley wine type brews but not as opaque. Minimal head/carbonation, trace ring and isolated cap island floating.
Taste: Delicious. Not at all like a "wine" type beer (like Noble Rot or similar). A pretty neutral golden ale type start resolving to yummy blueberry taste, not overpowering.
Palate/Mouthfeel: unremarkable, pretty light.
Aroma 7/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 14/20

Yum. On the Sweeter side, yet balanced. I would purchase this again. Just using some space... Blah blah blah

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark reddish black pour with thin off white head, aroma is big sugary berry, hints of oak, slight vanilla in there, big caramel and toffee notes with a slight cinnamon spice. Taste is a mix of cinnamon, caramel and toffee, into some boozy oak, slight wine-like notes, going into lots of big sweet berry with black, blue and raspberry notes coming through, finishing sweet. Dessert beer for sure.

Tap. Nice ruby Color♥. Dusty rose inthe glass. Nose is sweet fruity buttery Belgium. Great breakfast beer to go with a Belgium waffle with fruit. Dry dusty mouthfeel. Really opens up as it warms. Leaves a sweet glossy berry on the lips. A real pleasure to drink.

REALLY impressed by this beer! Pours a ruby red to amber with white head that goes away quickly. Musty notes as well as fruity ones in the nose. Finishes clean.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jolie bière ambrée aux reflets cramoisis, limpide et où flotte un large col laissant au verre une belle dentelle souple. Des arômes de cassis, de mûre et un filet d’alcool. Elle est bien amère sans trop de sucres résiduels. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen/robuste, effervescence moyenne et se termine sur de longs arômes.

Bottle. Deep cherry red color. Taste is fruity with a Belgian yeasty flavor. Not overly sweet with a delicious backbone. Easy drinking the. I expected

Garnet with a pink tinted head. Aroma is lightly grassy with just a whisper of fruit. Lots of malt, sour red fruit and alcohol. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Fruit seem to have been mostly lost in the fermentation. Expected better.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Heavy aromas of blueberry and raspberry, bready yeast, and a tart overture that makes me instantly think of a lambic. Gorgeous reddish-orange color with a slight purple tinge, and a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The flavor is most comparable to a lambic, but it’s so well-balanced. It’s undeniably sweet, but in the best possible way. It pushes that edge to candy-sweet without being cloying. The carbonation is perfect and holds the sweetness in check. This is a really solid beer, and can be enjoyed by everyone from wine drinkers to beer connoisseurs to sour beer fans. Another great job by Dogfish Head.
