Once again Superstition kills it. --- Beer merged from original tick of Grand Cru Berry on 06 Nov 2019 at 16:55 - Score: Appearance - 10 | Aroma - 10 | Flavor - 10 | Texture - 10 | Overall - 10. Original review text: Tap @ CBC2016. Pours a deep dark purple, almost black. Oily, no bubbles, straight up slick stuff. Aromas of currants, sweet berries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, subtle vanilla, sweet honey, icecream-like stuff, tannins. Taste is a huge bomb of fruits, icecream, vanilla, white chocolate, tannins, subtle tartness in the back. The sort of sometimes overwhelming honey sweetness is completely gone, and even though this is very sweet there’s a huge balance from the subtle tartness, the fruity sweetness and the additional barrel sweetness. Incredible in every way. First 5 I’ve ever given on ratebeer but I can’t see how this shouldn’t get a 5. Can’t say I prefer this over the best beers I’ve ever had, but for what it is, I can’t see how this could be any better.
Tap @ MBCT Green Session. Pours dark and deep red, no foam to talk about. Pretty amazing, deep, sweet, lots of berries here, utterly satisfying syrupy nose. Taste is sweet of course, lots of berry juice (or syrup if to be more exact), honeycomb and light-light bitterness there. If you like fruited meads then this one is pretty much as good as it gets. Awesome!
Very sweet intense berry character. Sweet with modest acidity. Very rounded. Big linger berry finish. Slightly warming. Very good
Sample. Chocolate fat, berry- ice cream like, light pepper. Deep purple, claret shine. Sundae with reduced berry wine, cherry retronasal, light cinnamon finish.
