750ml bottle served in a tulip. Pours a deep reddish brown, almost black. Not much head. Some fruit and dark malt in the aroma. More dark malt in the flavor. Finishes with some fruit and a bit of a harsh note. Fuller side of medium bodied, not a lot of carbonation. A little odd.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of blackberries, dark malts, some rye, spiciness, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. An interesting beer but not the best.

Hey Barry, get off my floor. Seriously. STOP! Bottle from Keir. Thanks! A: Blackberry color with a foamy mocha head. The head, which indicates nothing, not even that this blew up and drenched my floor - leaving me 20 minutes clean up time. N: Blackberry, soy, rye, peppercorn, earth, and pine. Some cocoa and coffee elements. Finished with blueberry. T: Slightly sour, sweet, and bitter. M: Creamy, medium body. No alcohol. O:: Not the most interesting beer Iíve ever had. I donít really understand why youíd add fruit to a bitter smokey base. Also, Iím subtracting points for gushing, because I can.

Bottle, shared by me... in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a dark brown with purplish hues, itís got a decent head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is pretty strong on blackberry with some medicinal stuff and some reserved sweetness. Itís rich and robust with a bit of rye bread aroma.

The flavor is pretty centered around those berries but while displaying only a mild sweetness. The bitterness is mild but well employed. Itís got a sort of whole grain bread sort of character to it as well.

I liked it pretty well.

Poured a dark brown with some purple highlights with aromas of malt, rye and some berries. Flavors are sweet berries, malt, grapes and light nuts. OK overall was expecting better.

Very toasty with a hint of nuts. Fun toasted malts. Vanilla, cocoa with a thin elixir finish. Nice.

Ferris (6528) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle - Blueberry and toasted malt. Dark maroon with a beige thin head. Chocolate malts, blueberry, light funk and a long finish. Neither sweet nor sour, not their best.

Bottle. Dark pour. Smells and tastes like dusty berries with a malty background. Not one of Perennials best.

Imported from untappd iphone. comes as close to my memory as possible. I poured most of it out but it tasted like blackberries but rye was too harsh.

Tap at GTP. Brown-purple-black color. Foamy steady head. Mellow berry tinged aroma. For a berry-rye, this just nails it. Rich sweet malt tones. Pleasant dark berry balance. Maybe the best beer of the night. Supremely balanced, all out quality feel. Awesome beer, maybe the best rye Iíve had all year.
