This was a pleasant surprise as Bo and Luke with tea leaves was my least favorite variant. The tea leaves in this were complimentary to the malt, which can often take a tea leaf taste. The actually malt character is a bit smoky and charred but this finishes with a blueberry sweetness. Very enjoyable and I'd certainly buy this in bottles.

"The base beer here rides the line between a stout and a porter featuring both roasty and chocolatey flavors with neither one really dominating. The really interesting stuff, however, comes at the end of the boil and beyond. After the boil but before fermentation, we steeped four pounds of black tea. This semi-bitter herbal flavor shines through prominently in each sip. After fermentation, we then replaced delicate oils scrubbed out by the yeast in the form of pure bergamot oil. This lends a bitter orange peel sort of flavor very familiar to drinkers of English teas. Take a pint, lie back, and think of England, my dear."
