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.

amberish, almost brown apperance with white head...aroma and flavor were typical for a scotch ale, not of a fruit beer....some roasted malts, with the usual sugars and caramels...barely any berry, let alone blackberry....not bad, but i would have never called it a blackberry fruit beer

Poured a darker amber. Not much of a head to it. The aroma was somewhat coffee, with only the slightest hint of berry. The taste was kind of a burnt malt. I really didn’t get any berry in the flavor. Not what I expected when I bought it. All in all, it was OK.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 12oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with almost no head, but kinda caramel-colored. Smells of fruity berries and some sweet malts. Can’t say that the berry in the taste is "subtle," but all I get is some berries and more malts. I am, upon rerating and my second beer, to pick up on the peaty earthy taste that is a Scotch or Scottish ale. Watery, with a slight bitter aftertaste. An OK beer, nothing special.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of strong berries and some caramel. Tastes of strong berries, caramel and very light peat. Thin body. Strong berry presence.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Brownish orange in color with a thin, off-white, soda pop, fizzy head. Aroma is berry with a strong, malty sweetness. Flavor is somewhat overwhelmed with a carbonic bite and is more like a soda pop with some caramel sweetness. A pleasant berry flavor and a Kellogs cornflake maltiness in the finish.

Terminus (3597) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2005
bottle-pours copper amber with a fizzy off-white head. buttery berry aroma starts with some notes of toasted grains and more berries. the flavors are actually pretty good-less berry than the aroma would make it seem. some nice fruity sweet malts, chocolate, light caramel, and light diacytl, especially on the finish. Different and not all that bad.

In the bottle from Dirty John’s. Pours a cloudy copper with an off-white head. Amazing mixed aroma of berries and acid. This must be a remarkably low pH beer. I’ll bet the yeast loved it. And from the size of the yeast cake in the bottle, I’d say I was right. Flavor is not tart (and it should be from the aroma), but more on the sweet side. Subtle hop content, but a strong medicine-like fruity flavor. I don’t know why, but I liked it a lot. Maybe it has something to do with this perfect Nebraska September day.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Hazy dark amber color with no head left on top. Smell is real fruity, full of berries, hint of chocolate. Flavor is not as good. It doesnt come off as particularly strong in any department. Could use some malt to keep it strong, and the blackberries don’t come off the same.

Much thicker then most fruit berrs, this one is not bad at all. WHile like a slightly thinner conmsitencey, the flavor is really nice. Like Blue creek blueberry (which is a bit better), this is a subtle beer without overt sweetness. Yet the sweet undertone is nice and almost makes up for the heavy finish

Crockett (1095) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Pours thin orange and pale with a thin white head. Sweet and limp nose of toasted grain and fruit. Currants and icing sugar. Very thin palate and no hops to be seen. A trace of lemon. Sweet and unbalanced. Faint tart berries and mint in the finish.
