12oz Bottle: Pours a very dark brown, cola brown, w/ a massive soapy brown head that leaves some blotchy lacing behind as it falls. As soon as I cracked this one I smelled the blueberry. So, blueberry: Check. Picking up some malts & a slight hint of yeast in the aroma as well. Flavor is bitter dark roasted malts w/ an ever so slight syrupy blueberry sweetness that lingers on the tongue. Strikes me as an average stout w/ the novelty of blueberry hidden within.

12 oz bottle that was a bonus in a trade with BBB63. Pours a deep brown with an off white head and spotty lace. The aroma of blueberry is quite strong. Flavor is obviously blueberry ( to strong ) and oatmeal. A yeasty bread like background as well as some hop bitterness. Iím not a big fan of most fruit beers and this was no exception. Blueberrys belong in pie, not beer.

Poured deep black with a frothy brown head. Strong aroma of blueberries, oats, and a hint of coffee. Overpowering flavor of blueberries with a nice suttle coffee ending. Fairly impressed with this beer and itís a very easy drinking stout.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of blueberries, chocolate, and some roast. Tastes of blueberries, chocolate, light roast, and a touch of caramel. Medium sweet with a light tart finish.

Courtesy of Degarth. Pours very dark with thin mocha head. It has a big bouquet of blueberries that seem to be coming from sugary fruit extract along with a faint malt roastiness and a hint of tart like chemicals. It has a roasty flavor with a dominant blueberry extract taste that becomes a bit tart and drying into the finish. Seems like a great combination if the fruit part was done different (better).

Courtesy of Degarth.

opaque body, dark brown or almost black, canít tell which...1 finger tan head, semi lasting, some lacing present...nose is oatmeal flakes, blueberries, chocolate, some roast, all of it very artificial and metallic...unfortunately this carries over into the flavor profile as well...stays away from cloyingly sweet, so thatís a plus...medium bodied, appropriate for a fruit beer...creamy mouthfeel...perfume and chemical notes kick up even higher on the back end...finish is lengthy, perfume, fake blueberries, oatmeal and some bitterness...

I had high hopes for this one but the metallic notes just ultimately killed it.

Bottle. Midnight crimson with a firm but relatively thin top of foam. The unmistakable blueberry aroma is pervasive enough to reach my olfactory senses from at least 2 feet away. But somehow at the first quaff, thereís almost no sign of the blueberries on my palate. Instead, I get a quite ashy stoutiness. There is something more that must equate to the tannins from the berries, but without the aroma, Iíd not have figured that out. Good alternative to dessert. (#3325, 2/17/2008)

Beer looks very nice-dark almost black in color with a creamy tan head. Smells very blueberry (of course). Mouthful is very thin for a stout and the blueberry flavor dissolves into a bitter finish. Its decent.
