An American style wheat mixed with blackberry juice and a touch of our Steam Engine Stout to create this dark fruity ale

We donít want to toot our own horn, but we will anyway. This brew is another top seller. Created by accident, a chance blending of raspberry wheat and stout, we recreated this crowd pleaser for distribution. Call it a mad scientist production, call it a miracle, call it dumb luck if you want; we call it serendipity. To those that claim they can only drink one fruit beer or that they donít enjoy them at all, please give this one a try. The blackberries are deliciously subtle giving this wheat ale/stout blend just that little something extra that keeps them coming back for more. Easy drinking by itself or, like the raspberry wheat, a great beer to enjoy with dessert.

#4 of 5 in my fruit beer tasting. 12oz bottle. That might be the most disgusting aroma Iíve even come across in a beer, huge popcorn butter, rancid, nostril coating, pungent, dead body, month old coffee. Pours a medium dark brown with a small frothy off-white head. Craziness, sharp and tart, moldy blackberry, sweet and quite tart, some faint super distant roast, lots of blackberries, oddly more drinkable than the raspberry, not really any signs of the stout except some acidity from the roast. Medium bodied with nice crisp fine sizzling carbonation. Eh... that coffee flavor is so off-putting.

Bottle, no BBD on label, has a dark ruby pour with a one finger high of an off-white and tan colored head, medium effervescence or so, some dark colored sediment in the bottle, leaves a little lacing on the sides of the glass, aroma of raspberries and blackberries with some sweetness on the nose, finding malt aroma in this beer was like looking for a needle in a haystack and the needle was painted that hay color to, flavor of raspberry and blackberry, some sweetness on the tongue, little if any malt flavor and no flavors that resembled a stout, may have been better if there were stout flavors to be had here, oh wellÖ Mouth feel is a little less than medium, kind of thin for a stout, this beer did not look like a stout as mentioned by another rater, raspberry, blackberry and some sweetness dominated the aroma and flavor of this beer, no off flavors or aromas just a prominent berry beer, the brewer could try to brew this with more malt flavor, I was looking forward to trying a Blackberry stout beer, what a bummer, I love Blackberry.

Pailhead (5193) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle: The aroma consists of light blackberry, roast, and faint grass. It pours a slightly hazy brownish-orange with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with mild blackberry and grass. The finish has the slightest hint of roastiness. Light-medium bodies with moderate carbonation.

Sampled at a The LoSBD meeting, thanks to RAYBOY01: This had a brown body with a beige head - making it difficult to believe itís based on a Stout. What I got was candy berries in the nose and candy berries in the flavor. I had two heavily salted radishes (a The LoSBD thing) to cleanse my palate after this one.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle from Siciliano;s under the Mt. Pleasant label. Cloudy dark brown with red tint and creamy, beige, medium head. NIce berry aroma with slight sourness, and medium malt sweetness. Flavor is sweeter berry with same tartness, only slight grain/tannin, livable though, slight mango. Medium and well carbonated. Real tasty, real solid, I can dig it.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle . A dark amber color body with a thin off-white head,that is mostly lasting. Aroma of a sweet roasted malt and berry fruit. Flavor is roasted malt up front,light tartness from the fruit juice,maybe blackberry,maybe raspberry,grape jelly,some lightl spicy/earthy hops at the end. Quite balanced for a fruit beer,not sticky,or super tart, just a nice session fruit beer,I would buy this again,and iím not a big fan of the style.

Kind of misleading since there are no actual blackberries here as I was told at the brewpub...12 oz bottle...Dark ruby red with very little head. Aroma is raspberry jam. Flavor is tart raspberries up front, then some chocolate and roast malts at the finish. Lively carbonation. Really a nice combination of the stout and raspberry ale in that you can taste characteristics of both beers. Very tasty.

MrBunn (2516) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle. Not sure if this is the right brew or not... "Mount Pleasant Coal Stokers Blackberry Ale" on label. Pours a dark brown with little head and aromas of slightly burnt toast and grape jelly at time it smells more like dog poo than anything else. I had no idea these aromas would combine to this effect. Flavor is a lousy mix of leather, burnt and old malt and a touch of fake blackberry/grape jelly. From time to time a blackberry juice aftertaste kicks in, but it seems to be intermittent. This just isnít berry good... Sorry, couldnít help the last line.
