Pours brown with some head. Smells like a brown with some artificial fruit and juice aroma. Taste is like the mix between a cheap snow cone and cough syrup. Not good. drainpour.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Draft. Aroma has notes of blackberry, chocolate and roasted malts. Very dark ruby amber hue that sits almost black with an average off-white head. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter and a little sour. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation. Wow, what an amazing beer. Wonderful chocolate and fruit flavors. Loved it.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Clear copper with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma of perfumed malts, blackberry, syrup and molasses. Taste of malt and blackberry. Mildly tart with a metallic finish that’s a touch bitter. The start of a mount pleasant vertical that was suppose to ascend in flavor and taste but it did the exact opposite making this beer the best of the bunch.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Draft pour. Reddish-brown in color, opaque. Leaves a touch of lacing. Blackberries in the nose with some roasted malt aroma. Medium in body, smooth, with a short palate-cleaning finish. Sweet with blackberries and balanced with a touch of roasted/earthy bitterness. Unique. Enjoyable as a summer brew!

flatmatt (1305) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2010
On tap. Pours dark brown with a white head; looks very cola-like. Aroma has some roast and hints of berries and sweetness. Flavor has a smoky roastiness with juicy dark berry flavor that gets stronger as it warms. Quite enjoyable.

Strykzone (5817) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2010
Sampled at Schlafly’s repeal. This beer poured quite reddish with just a tiny head. It was very sour with dry bitterness. Blackberry notes were strong and nice. The blackberry was the saving grace here. It fell short otherwise.
