12 oz bottle. Pours near black and smells of roast malt, blackberries, and mild bourbon. The flavor is sweet with blackberries, roast malt, and subdued bourbon.

Not bad! I wouldn't go for a steady diet of it, but as a novelty it is interesting.

It doesn't look like much in the glass. No head - like a cola that's been sitting for awhile. Aroma is faint, and yes, you do get hints of blackberry - and not an artificial smell. The flavor is actually quite nice. Ever so slightly sweet, and definitely blackberry - not just generic "berry."

Well carbonated and sort of light in body.

As I write this review and sip, I find myself nudging my scores in the categories slightly upward, as I am beginning to enjoy it more after the first tentative sips. I wouldn't buy a case of the stuff, but it's enjoyable enough that I would buy the occasional bottle or two among other purchases in the future.

A more pedestrian review here....
An interesting take on traditional porter; as the name states: porter w blackberry. The nose is like a standard porter but quickly reveals distinct berry with mild bitter around the edges, with a round finish. Creative balance. The first sips may be unusual to you, but soon becomes familiar. IMO best chilled.
This is the only berry stout I've tried so difficult to rate comparatively.

PS Read a complaint that it did not maintain a head. This is true-- head pockets and disappears quickly. Personally I go by taste, not look or head.
