3.29/5 rDev -10.4%
A: look like a black IPA , dark brown, only see-through once you get to the bottom of the glass
S: pumpernickel (it is a rye) - maybe a slight coffee aroma at the end
T/M: a litter bitter/sour for the style. Up front is a pumpernickel taste, but fades into a lemony-citrus bitterness backed by a little rye-IPA dryness. Agree that the ending has note of a smoked cigar (hope it's not just power of suggestion)
O: turns bitter/sour little too quickly for me. There are some nice black IPA qualities, though. I wouldn't shy away from it in te future but won't seek it out either.

3.34/5 rDev -9%
Minimal,almost non-existant foam, but very aggressive carbonation bubbles. Color is dark black with purple tint. Don't think grape soda color as it is just a hint of purple. Just a hint of rye and a bit of molasses in the aroma, but a bit more of the blackberry comes out. The aroma is actually subdued, but I don't like overly sweet in my fruit beers, so I don't view that as a big negative. The flavor is really more on thetart blackberry side. The aftertaste showcases the spiciness of the rye and makes an interesting interplay with the tartness of the blackberries. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and slightly oily.I appreciate the daring of Perrenial's beers, but this is one of their efforts that doesn't have me clank ring for more.
