Thick, oily dark chocolate brown. Very little head formation. Rich, sugary nose. Chocolate syrup, ethanol, blackberry, vanilla, soft maple. The alcohol and the sugar burn the nostrils. Sweet and stout-like up front -- lots of chocolate and bourbon and oak. Mid-palate, the blueberries emerge, again sweet. Acidity settles in at the finish, melding with vanilla bean and cocoa once again. Thick, creamy body with mild, peppery CO2. Rich and sweet, but tasty. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
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 (16696) - 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
Dark pour, slim off whitehead, Mild sourness mixed with bourbon, chocolate. Medium body.

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 (14233) - 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.
