Beautiful solid dark brown color. Rich roasted darkness but the berry appears in the the scent. Dark barrel roasted fig, berry leather, tabbaco. taste. Perfect thickness.

mcberko (14632) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe for Big Wood 2013, pours jet black with a beautiful small brown head. Aroma of blackberries, roast, vanilla and whiskey - super complex. Flavour is orgasmic, with blackberries, vanilla, chocolate, and light whiskey overtones. Incredibly complex, smooth and amazingly well-integrated. Soft and velvety on the palate, with everything in great proportion. Phenomenal.

Sin duda alguna una de nuestras favoritas de todos los tiempos. Aroma intenso a Frutas del bosque, y sabores muy torrefactos. En boca es perfecta

Dark, deep, with a rich purple hue. A touch of sweetness, strong roasted malt, complex fruit flavors that last for what seems like a minute after each sip. Blackberry and chocolate fight for the finish. Spectacular.

Bevuta in bottiglia. Colore nero scuro, schiuma leggera. Al naso sentori di malti e miele di castagno, frutta matura. In bocca è quello che si sente è cioccolata, frutta rossa, leggero lattico, liquoroso, alcol. Corpo pieno, carbonazionenella media.. da provare assolutamente.

# 60 Struise. 33 cl. draft @ ‘t Antwaerps bierhuiske. Thx for the tip nbutler11 – been wanting to try this one. Pours black with a huge, very creamy mocha head towering over the glass. Nose is incredible, real blackberries, not additives or fake or anything but real pure of blackberries, like smelling the fruit itself with some mocha, chocolate, sweetish jam and some booze. Smell beats taste here, taste is clearly different and influenced by the berries but less defined taste of the actual berries, bit boozy, chocolate fudge with some blackberry jam, thick malts and caramel, sweet, boozy, very thick coffee, liquorice,… Very thick body – lovely although I preferred the whisky BA version honestly. Still doesn’t top my fond memories of the base beer which doesn’t make this a great beer in it own right, a bit too harsh almost for me. Is this a future reverse society beer, one of their many recent one-off or is this aging for a future release I wonder?

75cl bottle shared at Strasy66 tasting, CBC Islington. What a great beer for my 1500th rating! It pours a pitch black body with a large mocha head. Aroma is big and bold on roasted notes. Lots of wood, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Some tart notes from the berries too. Taste is beautiful and balanced, with big bold roasted and chocolatey notes sort ounces by a smooth vanilla and port wine silkiness. Berry tartness in the finish to help the drinkability of this beast. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. Great beer.
