A: Poured black into a pint glass. A fairly good sized tan head was obtained, which dissipated rather slowly. There was some good lacing left on the glass.
S: Never had anything with elderberries in it, but smells great of chocolate and berries, some caramel, very sweet.
T: Very unique taste, beginning with a berry flavor that morphs into a drying coffee like finish. It really changes a lot in your mouth as it warms up. I do enjoy the taste, there are also elements of toffee, oats, and a good amount of hop balance.
M: Feels very good, not too thick or thin, with the slightest amount of berry taste.
D: I would definitely drink this again. Its complex flavors allow for a truly pleasurable experience. It goes down fairly well, and theres very little I can complain about.

A: Dark almost opaque, with a slight dark red tinge when held to the light. Creamy beige head. Sexy lacing.
S: Bog, toasted malt, chocolate, earthy. Much like a stout.
T: Toasty, earthy, dark malts, stout like, a certain amount of dark berry flavour, and the elderberry is evident when drunk slowly over the tongue with some air infusion. The finnish has the crisp yet bitter finnish of elderberry.
M: Slightly coridial like, minimally syrupy or sticky, with medium to low carbonation.
O: Does what it says: Elderberry and it delivers. I would think of it like a porter or stout in its scents and flavours. Worth a try, and would go well with elderberry pie.
