Pours a moderate head. Color is dark cloudy hazel.
Smell is floury, with a definite presence of fruit.
First sip is a definite tart fruit presence, combined with a dark malty stout aftertaste. It's not too bitter, though, and the whole mouthfeel of it is quite pleasant.
Overall, this beer is one of the better beers I've had from Mountain Town. Maybe not on par with Founders or Bells, but a great brewery nonetheless. This is a prime example of what they are potential of.

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.
