Having this side by side by side with Backyard and Cherry Rye, Bramble was my second favorite of the variants. Would have loved to try this one a year or so ago.

It pours black with a little brown. No lacing.

The nose, boose heavy, dried fruit, bit of sweetness, and a little stout.

Tastes... Balanced with barrel characteristics. Light fruity notes delightful smell and taste. Fruits have fallen off a bit. Past its prime for the fruits. Very boose forward and over powering. Still very drinkable.
