Bottle from unknown via Mykel. Pours a dark brown/black, little bit of head. Aroma slightly fruity, dry chocolate. Body dry but juicy, sweet. Wow! A little too much fruit for my taste, but not bad. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
A- pours a syrupy opaque dark brown with a quick, loose finger of cabernet khaki head. No lacing. Ruddy edges.
S- like a cobbler running rampant with blue berries and chocolate. Lots of sweet smelling baked goods. A light burn from the bourbon and oak. Some chocolate banana nut bread as well. Familiar roasted malts, caramel, rhubarb, and lots of dried fruits - raisins. Apple brandy cider comes through as it warms, as well as a little dirt and twigs.
M- full syrupy body with some tackiness. Decent carb.
T- so sweet and sugary. Blueberry torani overwhelms throughout with some bitter alcohol burn. Chocolate is a little plastic - a-la a bad edible advent calendar. Lots of dried fruits. Caramel with some bitter and dirty essence in the middle and end with lemon and grass. A faint tobacco and licorice. Good rhubarb and mineral finish. Taste is not as complex as the aroma. brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle @ Every Bruery Beer Tasting. Very dark brown pour, almost black in color with a thin tan head. Super roasty and a strong balsamic note. Some chocolate syrup and a whole lot of ash. I guess maybe some blueberry skins... The flavor is kind of kind of harsh and roasty. A bunch of ash and charred oak. Balsamic vinegar, chocolate, and a touch of dark fruit. Not what I was hoping for and not very good. Really chalky finish. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2014

750ml bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Blueberries, tart, some bourbon, wood, vanilla, dark fruitiness, and chocolate. Some alcohol in the finish, but overall well hidden. crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2014
750ml bottle. I could not figue out what this was supposed to be. Very balsamicy, some blueberry flavor, outlandish amounts of booze. And now i log on to post my notes and it is a 15% sour? Badly executed bad idea. toxichop (598) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 10, 2014
P: A very dark beer with a very thin khaki head. S: Straight off the bat you get that typical, bourbon, alcohol, and molasses but there is a bit of sourness to this one, some malt, toffee and faint artificial blueberries. T: Chocolate, molasses, sweet blueberries, with a bit of alcohol in the finish. M: Thick and syrupy. O: Enjoyable but not the biggest fan of the Bruery anyway.
