The color purple is so underrated. Granted, there's a whole book (then movie) that uses the color as a metaphor. And that's great. But it's such a beautiful color, I think we should give it more attention. Fortunately, Black Forest seems to agree.

Gorgeous shade of pink-violent. I didn't catch what the base for this beer was, but aromatically speaking, the blackberry was clear -- and not a whole lot else. It seems sugary to start, and it gets worse with the first sip. Having tasted a few beers prior some beer made with whole fruit and having just covered the subject of fruit in beer with someone earlier, the difference between actual fruit and the sugary mess here was clear. If this was brewed with whole blackberries, it was certainly supplemented with sugar and strawberry Torani. There's little else to this beer except an airy, cakey mouthfeel. Their imperial stout tasted more of natural fruit than this did. (925 characters)
