Excellent dark porter with a blackberry aftertaste. It has a large head when poured.It has a hint of chocolate and coffee. My favourite beer for the past 3 years. OntBeerDrinker (513) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Once I opened it I could smell blackberry juice smell from a distance & that kicked ass. But bottle to nose showd some roasted bitterness smell. I used my tall hobgobline glass & recived like a 3 finger bubley cola brown head that seemed like it was thick(IDK)and lasted. Black beer but to light some dark red to it and thats when you can see throw it a bit. Taste is blackberry like juice that slides all the way throw and then is mostly gone but stays in a sourish after taste,I also got all this roastedness,chocolate taste & some bitterness. Sits a bit heavy/full in belly from the hops. I can enjoy fruit beers and had other fuit porters b4. Fan of porters and this is not blowing me away taste wise like the 1st smell but still a kick ass easy driking yummy brew cheer’s! :) Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2009
This one is exactly as its named. Blackberries are abundant throughout the nose and mouth. Delicious malted barley is dominant in the mouth and produces wave after wave of sweet (but not sugary!) roasted appeal. This one could have easily gone on the fruity side but the malt and hops hold it firm as a porter expression....the blackberries never leave but play a consistent supporting role. Exceptionally smooth porter that lingers on for ages. Very impressed. shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Complex nose: flowery, fresh, nicely fruity with a hint of burnt malts and even smoked pepperoni. Black as all hell, even in direct light shows a dark brown with a big beige head that mostly disintegrates, but lingers a bit. Attractive lacing. Starts bitter with burnt, smoky malts and transmogrifies into a bright, slightly candyish fruit beer with some hoppy undertones — the contrast is startling and very well done. A short finish which actually reminds me of Berry Fanta or Sprite Remix (which isn’t a bad thing). Hides the alcohol well in the thick, well-carbonated body. Awesome, underrated, and dare I say misunderstood?
