Wow this one was a real stinker. It poured purplish red with a slimy head that clung to the glass like poison. It smelled... no, reeked of berry syrup and sugar and possibly adjunct, but I couldn't tell over the syrup. It tasted overwhelmingly of berry syrup with a hint of malt and an afterthought of water. The aftertaste clung worse than cough syrup. This is the closest I've come to pouring one in the sink in years. I pray that I just got a bad bottle, maybe improperly stored, but I don't think I'll have the intestinal fortitude to try another one.

Appearance- Dark Brown color with a half finger tan head. head starts to diminish quickly.

Smell- mild wheat smell with a hint of black berry and sweet fruit smells. I feel like it could smell better.

Taste.- I am highly disappointed with the taste of this beer. I thought it was gonna taste a whole lot better but it tasted worse than it smelled. It has a sweet blackberry fruity taste at first and then quickly starts to finish harsh. The finish is horrible. It kind of tastes like an old leather boot or a spoiled stout.

Mouth feel- it is okay. feels like and average beer. not a whole lot of carbonation.

I am highly disappointed with this beer. I bought this as a single bottle but I have scene it at the store for close to $9 dollars for a six pack. I feel that is crazy expensive for this beer. I would never look to drink this beer again. Just highly disappointed because I had high expectations for this..

This one is interesting. It's got a cool amber purple brownish color. It has a good tan head. You can smell the blackberry in the nose. The flavor profile is quite complex, which may not be right for everyone. It starts off sweet with the blackberry taste, then it finished a little tart, and it has an aftertaste of roasted malts similar to a brown ale. I'm not a huge fan of blackberries, but I enjoyed this one.
