COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This slightly skewed fruit beer begins as a brown ale with smooth malt flavors of chocolate and hazelnut. The addition of blackberry puree and muddled elderberries during fermentation provides the sweet tart fruity center of this delicious beery bonbon

This was the only chance I had to try any of the Vintage releases but the rest all looked appealing too. With more time I could have really knocked out a few more ticks. This is a fine release from the cask tent that hopefully will make a revival in the future.

Aroma / Appearance - A brownish black base is fluid and light. Muddy chocolate, sweetness, and muted hops drive home a texture of dark fruits.
</br > Flavor / Palate - Chocolate bars dropped in fresh mud sweeten the palate. The malt driven transition rushes into a pair of dark fruits. Nothing is exceptionally overpowering. All told it is a solid beer. I don’t know if I would want more than a sampler but I would give it a try again.

On tap at Vintage Brewpub. Dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of blackberry, Ihop syrup, light chocolate, malt, caramel and a touch of nuts. Taste of blackberries, chocolate, hazelnuts, fruit and a mild tart and sweet finish. Interesting.
