2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Moderate foam. The aroma is clear of tangy blueberries. The taste is hard roasted malt with quick transition to aftertaste of sour and fresh blueberries. Exciting and very different stout, but I prefer the more potent and classic stouts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Black body, with a medium, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of chocolate, dark berries, cocoa, slight liquorice.
Taste is a bit light for a Stout, with chocolate, cocoa, coffee, some sweet-sour blueberries.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes quite soft, roasty, a bit dry, with cocoa, coffee, blueberries.
A bit light bodied and quite one-dimensional, but still quaffable, with a nice chocolate and blueberry mix. Overall good, but there are better blueberry Stouts out there, for example from Dark Horse.

Lovely rich roast. Black. tan head. Lovely rich roast in taste too. Drinkability good. Burntness done almost perfectly, rich but not aggressive at all. Not getting any berries, but I don’t care about that. Great balance. Very tasty stout, maybe underrate.
