Dogfish Head: Black & Blue

Yep, two weeks in a row, Dogfish.. deal with it my friends.

Last week was the Red & White, this week, the Black and Blue. If you haven't had this one yet, go get it, now. It went down very smooth, similar to a sweet red wine. Minimal head, and a red color jumped out at me during the pour. The smell of the berries immediately hits you, but it's not overpowering at all. I really can't say enough good things about this beer.

After tasting, I read that aging it one year is the way to go. So Thursday, I'm heading to the beer store to buy another bottle for safe keeping over the next twelve months.

I gave the Red & White a 3.5... this one get a 4 easily. The 10%abv makes it that much more worthwhile too. Normally I'm not a huge fan of fruit beers, but this one totally breaks the mold...
