Poured from bomber into tulip glass.

A- jet black with very little head that dissipates instantly.

S- lots of berry sweetness followed by some vanilla and chocolate.

T- The berries come through so well. It tastes like liquid blackberries and mulberries. he bourbon hits and it blends so ell with the slight tartness of the berries. A little heat comes through but really not much at all.

M- silky velvety thick deliciousness.

O- a fantastic beer. the berries are a great addition to the bourbon county brand. There is a well balanced sweetness from the bourbon amd the tartness of the berries. A very well blended beer.
