3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark chocolate covered blueberries with the afore mentioned blueberry hand soap in the aroma. Belches up blueberry syrup. Strange and interesting beer but not one I would more than once in a great while.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Strong smell of blueberry. Tastes like blueberry with dark chocolate finish. It really is a blueberry stout. It is a very strange combination, but really isn’t too bad. I expected it to be a disaster and I am pleasantly surprised.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, contract brewed by pyramid and 7.5%abv. Black in the glass, with too light beige of a head. Blueberry hand-soap, syrupy aroma with a hint of dark chocolate. Quite sharply alcoholic and sweet, with a huge blueberry syrup sweetness. Mild roastiness is mostly covered up. Medium-full body and a bit sticky; heavy. Blueberry syrup and alcohol dominate this one, to pretty dismal ends.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer poors dark with very little head and no lacing on the glass. Aroma is only of the fruit which definately comes through. The bitterness that comes through in the beer is from the dark malts which have an interesting interaction with the blueberry flavor. The overall blueberry flavor comes through as I drink the beer. Overall the beer is OK and would be easy to drink a few.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma was sweet blueberry muffin. The flavor was roasty, malty and had a strong blueberry note and a tangy and bitter finish. Interesting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. ABV 7.5% per the bottle. Pours a thin tan head of short duration, good lacing over a dark brown body....nose of roasted malts with a bit of cinnnamon and slight blueberry ...tastes of roasted malts initially then the fruity flavor of blueberry kicks in leaving a sweetish raspberry finish, similar to spruce tip beers...mouth feel is creamy. An interesting experience.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark beer with some reddish hints against the light. Short lived brown head. Nose of artificial blueberry syrup, chocolate and stale urine. Some chocolate, but moslty the blueberry. The finish is like a blueberry muffin, that just gets more and more medicinal as it warms.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Found this one bottled at Binnys in St. Charles, Illinois. Cloudy, dark reddish-brown pour with a filmy tan head, Strong, fruity nose, a bit of milk chocolate, strawberry, orange and blueberry. Taste itself is very much unlike a stout and more like a blueberry blonde ale, without the typical heaviness, but also without characteristic maltiness or bitterness. Not a bad beer, just a bad stout.

Bottle courtesy of Mother in Law. Blueberries stood out in aroma on the nose. Black with tan head. Blueberry flavor thoughout beer. Also a creamy body texture you will find in a good stout was present. Moderate dry bitterness also. Good brew.
