Beer Camp #61 (10/6/2011). Black Lager brewed with huckleberries. A huckleberry resembles blueberries, and are sweet and tasty. Itís also the official state fruit of Idaho. (Youíll win trivia with that knowledge.) Also, Finnish traditional ales use berries in lieu of hops. (Sahti.)

Tap at CK thanks to argo0. Clear brune. Ring of bubbles along the edge of the glass. Nose is sharper coffee and roast. Taste is richer chocolate, coffee, small tangy berries in the background are essentially unidentifiable unless told explicitly. Spicy, long dry finish.

Great beer from one of thier beer camps. I understand they put 50 pounds of huckelberry in the mix but they didnít show up in the beer that much. Although they showed a little in the smell I thought. The carbonization on this beer could be a little lower but it is really close to ideal
