From bottle at the Crooked Stave tasting at Beerlovers Bar, Antwerp. Dark reddish brown almost black color with beige head. Malty and yeasty aroma, caramel and nutty notes, nice tart fruity - berries, wood notes. Sweet, bitter and acidic taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Outstanding beer with good blackberry flavour. Rich and deep, a little ageing helped. Not boozy at all. Wrong abv posted on site. Dark coloured body and above average mouthfeel.

Bottle thx to Benzai, medium sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Fruity aroma of blackberry and dark fruit, some roast and cookie as well, slight tart. Bit tart in taste, thick and fruity. Not a lot of barrel present. Good though.

Bottle shared with Caesar. Opaque dark brown color, average to medium sized off-white to beige head that leaves fair to good lacing. Smell and taste sour, sour dark fruits, I guess blackberry. Medium to firm sour but I’m not offended by it. I can understand it would be too sour for some. I quite like it. Don’t get that whisky influence, but I like the beer.

2014 Bottle shared. Thanks Jay! Huge tart blackberry nose with some lemon, oak and light whiskey notes. Very saison-like carbonation and good head retention throughout. Very tart, but milds a little as it warms. More oak and some light vanilla notes as well. Bone dry finish, with a refreshing tartness that lingers. Some umeshu like notes as well. Great!

brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle @ Home. Just about black in color with a khaki head. There’s a good bit of blackberry to it and a whole lot of charred oak. Some red wine, chalk, and lots of wood. Sort of tannic. Maybe a hint of buttery blackberry pie. Quite vinous. Pretty roasty, too. Some chocolate, lemon juice, and a touch of caramel. It’s alright. Better than some of the other versions, I suppose.
