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. dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Pours a brown-amber color with white head. Raspberry sweet/tart and sweet brown ale flavors. Aroma is a bit roasty with some sweet/tart raspberry notes.

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. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
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. willisread (3342) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2016
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!

Smell is really nice sweet and tart blackberry. Taste is nice tart blackberry sourness. Medium to full body, low carbonation, and no foam. brokensail (16449) - 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.

(375ml bottle) Pours a purplish brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of blackberry, oak, blueberry, grape, and leather. Flavor of blackberry, oak, lightly roasted malt, and raisins. Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
Bottles, thanks Staffan! Near black with small tan head. Aroma of blackberry funky brett notes, lactic acid, some vinegar, sweet berries. Taste is complex, dark berries, lactic and vinegar to a medium acidity, light sweet malt note with a fruity and sour finish. Lovely.
