Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cygnus: Blackberry began as our 3-year blended coolship ale made using malted barley, unmalted wheat, and oats. Each batch was made using a coolship and allowed to cool overnight, while cooling, airborne wild yeast and other microbes inoculate the wort and are eventually responsible for 100% of the fermentation. The beer is fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels for 1-3 years, then blended and refremented on 3.5lbs/gal of blackberries for an additional 2 months. Heavy blackberry on the nose and a light effervescence with a tingling sourness on the finish. Each sip leaves you eager for the next. Fruit character may diminish over time, so enjoy fresh for full fruit flavor and aroma.

big jammy blackberries, thick with a beautiful purple foamy top. Lots of berry no doubt, good carb but the front foot is definitely the fruit in this one. Awesome beer from Black Project, these are always a treat
