4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very pleasant chocolate and blueberry aroma. The fruit taste is also present in the taste but more subtle, making the malt shine more. Ideal balance between sweet and bitter. The body is pretty light for a stout, making it very easy to drink and the alcohol is very well hidden for the 7.5% ABV.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a black color with a slim finger’s worth of tan head that quickly died off. Barely any lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a nice sweet to roasty blend of sweet blueberry, slight roasty coffee, light vanilla, and bringing in a light cocoa all rounding out a wonderful aroma.
The taste was sweet and slightly roasty bringing in a slight bitter (from the coffee). Lingering slightly roasty coffee aftertaste leads to a quick dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me.
Overall, as an American Stout it works. The blueberry makes a nice added bonus. I’d have again.
