Saeglopur (309) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Dark brown to black body, with a very thin, dark tan, creamy head, that dissipates immediately. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, blueberry, wood. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, wooden, with dark chocolate, coffee and a slight acidity from the blueberries. Tasty! The chocolate and coffee notes blend very well with the sweet blueberries, which appear more and more the more it warms up. Smooth and well balanced. Really enjoyable!

Lisowczyk (48) - POLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Butelka 0.33l W szkle ciecz o ciemno brązowej, przechodzącej w czerń barwie, z niską i błyskawicznie znikającą pianą. W aromacie silna czekolada, kawa z odrobiną mleka, palony słód i jagody. Smak to palony słód, sporo czekolady. Nuty jagodowe rewelacyjnie naturalne formie, idealnie łączą się z leciutkim nutami laktozy. Goryczka głównie od palonego słodu.

Seffle (164) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Växjö. Pours a tar black with a very weak brown head. A pleasant tinge of blueberries in nose and palate. Otherwise a good but not impressing dry stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Flaska. Svart öl med ett fint beigt skum. Blåbären känns omedelbart. De finns där i doften och sticker fram sina tentakler genom kaffet, den rostade malten och chokladen. Följs upp i smaken men där de är mer som en del av alltet än i doften. Mycket njutbart. Sälta i avslutningen. Stor kropp.

angel77 (909) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 8, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo el 27-07-2014, en el momento. Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro poco persistente. Aromas de maltas tostadas con ligeros ácidos y frutos rojos del bosque con algunos tonos quemados y ahumados. Cuerpo medio con 7.5 vol correctos con cierta sensación alcohólica, paso ligero y sensación de licor. Sabores maltosos tostados, con frescos y ligeramente ácidos frutos silvestres y un toque picante que después de acabarla todavía no se de donde sale. Tonos de maderas quemadas y carbón, al final, bien combinados con cierto amargo y sensación láctica que permanece en boca por un buen rato. Buena y peculiar, seria conveniente repetir de nuevo.

sudomorph (585) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Aroma is very large. Blueberries, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of dark fruit. Wow. Taste is balanced. Big roasted malts, dark chocolate, mild Blueberry, and a near espresso finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall this is a great stout by itself. Add the blueberries and you get one of the best fruit beers I’ve had.

Draught at The White Horse, Parson’s Green on 24 Nov 2012. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, fresh blueberries and roasted malt. Coffee flavour, with some rich molasses and cooked berries. Full mouth feel. Finish was liquorice, burnt malt and treacle.

Cunningham (4439) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Thick oily black engine oil with a beige layer. Decent first impression. Dark malt, some coffee and blueberry in my nose. Yeah I like! Solid fine body. Pleasant mild sweetness and a moderate bitterness. A bit oily texture. Well what matters most? Taste off course. Is this one ok? Yes! No worries. Lovely smooth flavor and you can easily feel the blueberry. Not to often, and it is not to dominant either. Fine balance. Also some mild coffee and chocolate. Nice and pleasant stout!
[Bottle form Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, Norway]
