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.

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!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Sampled twice at the MBGF. Pours a dark shade of amber with a trim off white head. Smells of berries, for sure. Tastes thin, but full of blackberry flavor and almost like buttery popcorn. Very approachable.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the brewpub, Jul 21, 2012 - Pours dark amber-brown with a small head. There’s a good blackberry aroma with a touch of roasted malt. It tastes sweet with the blackberries the most dominate flavor. The stout is a good addition, bringing a stronger, more flavorful malt body to this fruit beer. It’s medium bodied and finishes with some bitterness. Pretty solid. To my surprise I think it was the best of my samples at the brewpub.
