Pours red wiith off white reddish head that lingers. Nose is blackberrys. Palate is blackberrys with lager lightness. No hops. It is what it says it is. Given its sweetrness, Drink well chilled.

PorterPounder (5195) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Seaside, Fl - Modica Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark purple, light off white head. Pleasant aroma of blackberries, a hint of vanilla. Flavor is full of potent blackberries, a hint of booziness, some traces of blackberry syrup, 12 oz is enough - edging towards cloying. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Kind of a guilty pleasure.

this is the worst of the 3 varieties that I’ve tried of this. tastes like a very nasty variety of mad dog 20/20.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento as Shadow’s Wild Black. Pours dark and ruddy with a slight creamy pinkish head. Smells like fresh blackberry. Flavor is sugary blackberry with a fairly nasty wheat? aspect? Or maybe rice and blackberry don’t go well together? At 8% I’m suggesting that this is flavored Natty Daddy. These big brewers just rearrange the plumbing and anything goes.

Grape Nehi for adults - what could be better. One could drink this all afrernoon and get really blown away. A totally different taste

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour is purple/black with almost no head. Looks more like a soda than a beer. Aroma is very sweet fruity. The blackberry aromas and flavors completely overwhelm this beer. This is not a beer for beer-drinkers. This is alcohol disguised as soda for people who don’t like the taste of beer.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2012
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A VERY SWEET BEER. Pours a deep red with a purplish head that unfortunately dissipates quickly. Definitely smells of blackberries, as expected and doesn’t really smell of much else though the faint hoppiness of beer can be detected. Tastes very sweet and greatly of blackberries with nice undertones of malt and hops. Ultimately has a nice mouth-feel and the palate is pleasing; it has a surprisingly full body for a lager and the texture is rather sticky, as it is so sweet. Has lively carbonation and is rather fizzy, almost like a blackberry soda (and probably flavored with blackberry extract) and finishes sweet.

Pink/purple with a cream head. Nose is raspberries and cough syrup. Very thin on the palate, water, sugar, cough syrup, and raspberries.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2012
The aroma is very sweet and almost exactly like berry candy. The appearance is deep purple red with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of funk. The palate is thin. Overall it’s macro swill but it smells nice and is not super offensive just seems artificial and so cloyingly sweet I can’t finish it.

scooterbub (793) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a purple brown with a tin quarter inch head that fades. Taste is of fruit juice, blackberries and some alcohol. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. Easy to drink and rather pleasant, but not quite as good as the Blue version.
