COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with six different types of barley, this is a flavorful malty beer, a traditional Scottish Ale -- with a subtle hint of blackberry...smooth from start to finish.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2008 They should market this better. I was so happy to find this for $2.99 a six! The other O’Fallon’s are not as good as this one. I have found this be be the best buy for you money. Totally drinkable. I am happy to bring this anywhere, as long as I can tell them it was less than 50 cents a beer.

9/09/2007: OFallon Blackberry Scottish-Style Ale is brown in color with a small, frothy beige head. Based on the first pass at the aroma, this beer smells more like whiskey than blackberry anything. Subsequent sniffs reveal more caramelized malt and a very, very faint berry (barely noticeable). The flavor is caramelized malt with some weak chocolate, fruitiness, and some seedy berry that starts to become noticeable after several sips and as the beer get several degrees warmer (but it’s still very subdued). The maltiness of the beer is rich and there is a welcomed dryness that really adds to the enjoyment of htis beer. The body of this beer is medium to medium-full and is quite smooth and goes down vrey easy. Overall, this is a good beer, but the blackberry isn’t really noticeable at all. That’s fine, but maybe O’Fallon should just make a plain Scottish Ale and just leave out the blackberries (or just drop it from the label!) since the base of this beer is quite tasty on its own.

12 fl. oz. bottle from The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky. Rating #78 for this beer...

Poured a clear deep copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was fruity with notes of berries and some hint of paper. The flavor was a mix of fruit and malt with a mildly bitter finish. Light-medium bodied.

clear dark blood red, whispy beige head, rich malt aroma with hints of light sweet blackberry offset by some smoke, big creamy body, sweet blackberry balanced by otherwise dry malt flavor, quite tasty, not sure why it’s called a scottish style ale, amazing high rating for a fruit beer but the blackberry is just a character and not the whole story, must have hit the mood just right

with age the blackberry fades and leaves just the malt flavor lacking much character, better fresh,

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled. Beer is clear, medium-dark ruby brown. Head is initially small, white, frothy. Mostly and rapidly almost-totally diminishing.<P>The aroma’s first impression is a bit off. Malty with light/moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel cookie; Hoppy with a light note of resinous citrus; Yeasty with just a hint of basement; Moderate miscellaneous sour fruit jam, glycerine.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter with a long, lightly acidic, lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Unclean aftertaste won’t stop.<P>The body is medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>Throw-away.

Ernest (6217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), with notes of cherries/berries and soap, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. Man, can O’Fallon not brew a beer without adding some kind of fruit or spice or vegetable or *something* to it? This is my 7th beer from these guys, and only one of them was unflavored? Sheesh.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Thanks to theisti fot the bottle. Hazy mahogany color with a small to medium head. Aroma of brown sugar, berries and toffee. Taste bring out the coffee and chocolate, which was rather surprising...but not unpleasant. Also some smoke, especially in the aftertaste. Altogether, I liked this beer. It seems like a mess of flavors, but it turns out to be very drinkable.

Dark brownish color. Smell of malt, dark fruit, blackberries, chocolate and coffee. Taste of chalk, light coco, hops, little smoke and berries. Tangy and sour at the end of each sip.
