PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle shared with a bunch of heads at Ryans. Poured deep purple with light top that faded away. Notes are juicy purple plum, blackberry, port wine, rich honey, and jam. This thing was smooth, and blackberry jellied out. Nice honey drank.

brystmar (1203) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Deep purple color. Smells intensely of blackberries, taste follows suit imparting the fruitiness without additional sugar. Hearty, delicious, and absolutely no hint of the 14% ABV. <3

The aroma is Blackberries and honey. Pours a dark purple/red. The taste is sweet. The body is light, the texture thin/creamy, the carbonation soft and the finish long. Damn Good!!

BiiruBierBeer (34) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Big berry and honey smell with some booze. Taste was berry jam with a significant alcohol taste to it. More of a general berry flavor to me; it just doesnít scream "blackberry" specifically when I take each sip. Gets a bit less boozy as it warms up thankfully.

A nice purple pour. Flavors are sweet and tart, lots of blackberry jam and a dry earthy note finishes this one amazingly. Schramm is a boss!

Bottle thanks to my mom! Pours a near clear very deep ruby with no head whatsoever. Aroma is full of blackberries with a bit of tartness, a hint of plum and mainly dry honey underlying. Flavor is full of tart blackberry that have a hint of acid and finishes with dry honey.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle shared by jackl. Thanks! Pours a dark purple color, still, weak legs. Aroma of dark fruits, grapes, berries, honey, booze, faint glue and melon. The taste is honey, grapes, blackberries, toasty notes. Medium bodied, chewy texture, acidic and hot, lingering tartness, a bit rough. A little disappointing.
