Default Drinking a Blackberry Porter

Just made a black berry porter. Got it bottled. I am not sure how long I should let it bottle condition for. I have heard that fruit beers have a time limit on them before they take a decline in flavor. I tasted a little while I was bottling and it was very apparent it will be a tasty beer. Could have probably drank it right then. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd let it sit for about 2 weeks, minimum, to ensure proper carbonation.

Not a problem at all. And yeah. It was hard not to just serve glasses out of the secondary.

* 6.6 lbs Dry malt extract
* 3 cups Crystal Malt 40 L
* 3 cups Special B
* 1/2 cup Chocolate Malt
* 1 in. Brewers Licorice
* 2 tbls. Gypsum
* 8 oz. Malto Dextrin
* 2 oz Liberty Hops ( 3.5 AAU)
* 5 lbs. Frozen Thawed Blackberries ( added to the secondary)
* 2 pkgs. Muton/Fison yeast
Pretty simple. But simple is good.
