Pours a purple brown color. The aroma has a ton of blackberry and honey notes to it and smells very nice. The flavor has a lot of sweet honey, as well as a ton of strong blackberry notes. There is also a hint of earth and some floral notes. Medium mouthfeel with the alcohol well hidden. Very glad I got to try this one.
