Blackberry Porter

Recipe added: 05/26/99

This brew changed twice while in the bottle. At 2 weeks, it had a sweet aftertaste. At about 25 days, it had a tart aftertaste, and after about a 45 days the "tartness" mellowed and the result was a very smooth, and drinkable fruity stout. My suggestion: Bottle it and leave it for a couple of months - if you can!!
