Dogfish Head Black & Blue
I realize that I have been on a bit of a Dogfish Head kick lately, but they do make some quality beers. I picked up a bottle of the Black & Blue. The Black & Blue is fermented with black raspberries and blueberries. I poured the beer into the glass, and noticed the reddish tint of the beer. It has a fruity smell, almost like a wine. As for the taste, it is a bit tart. I would have expected a little bit sweeter, but it leaves a dry after taste in your mouth, similar to a dry wine. The hints of black raspberries and blueberries are subtle. The alcohol content is 10% ABV, and is very noticable in the taste. Overall, the Black & Blue is not a bad beer, but it does not rank among my favorite Dogfish Head brews.
