What your thoughts on this? I was not impressed. At 11.25 a bottle and 10 percent ABV I was not impressed.

The fruit flavors were overpowered by alcoholic tastes. It was a very dry beer but not at all crisp and refreshing. Aroma was fruity with a strong ethyl profile.

Those who enjoy dry cider will like finish. But for some I think the alcohol bite could be too pronounced.

The best part about this beer for me is recycling the cool dogfish bottle for the next brew.

I agree with you. The concept behind the beer is really cool, but I can't say I was a huge fan. I tried it about 6 months ago and haven't gotten it again since. Does anyone know if I can use the DFH bombers to bottle sours in? Sorry to be off topic.

Thought it was a goopy mess. Not dry at all.

I wasn't impressed with my first try at black and blue either, but I had purchased a second bottle and aged for a year. Boy did that make a difference. The 1 year old bottle was fantastic!

After having the cough syrup they named Black & Red at the 2011 Oregon Brewer's Festival, there's no way I'd drop $11.25 for a bottle.

I haven't had it in a few years, but I loved it last time I had it.
