HPDalen (272) - DENMARK - MAR 11, 2016
Roasty aroma, hints of blueberry (which was very prominent when I opened the bottle). Black in colour, tan head. Complex and layered flavours of chocolate and blueberries. After taste sticks pleasantly in throat. I like this beer.

martjoobolut (2888) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle (from Beergium). Pours dark brown-black with brown head. The head stays. Aroma is blueberries, sweetness, roast, dark chocolate, malt. Flavor is sweet, bitter and slightly sour, blueberries, roast, chocolate, coffee. Finish is roast and chocolate. No sign of alcohol. Overall: this is so well crafted, feels smooth and easy to drink, a lot of blueberries, but they don’t run over the beer. Great brew.

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours pitch black with a medium dark brown head. Aroma has a ton of slightly artificial blueberry. Errr. Licorice, chocolate, light roasted malts, tobacco. Blueberries just don’t work on stouts... Taste is chocolatey, licorice, blueberry, sweet, roasty, tobacco, malty.

wcejrowski (13) - Wasrsaw, POLAND - FEB 7, 2016
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

Ernest (7282) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with a strong note of blueberry soda/candy/cereal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This one’s a double-edged sword in the nose...on the one hand, I’m pleased that the blueberry is obvious, but on the other, it’s a pretty artificial smelling blueberry smell, like Boo Berry cereal or a blueberry soda. And it is a little overbearing, to be honest. Whereas some other blueberry stouts I’ve tried in the past year barely smelled of it at all, this one is a bit over the top. Fruity-tart in mouth and a bit too lastingly sweet...and again, artificial tasting. Not repulsive or anything, but a rather cartoony rendition.

blueshockey24 (414) - Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
bottle. Pours black with thin brown head. Aroma is Chocolate Blueberry. Taste is sweet blueberry chocolate with a smoky chocolate blueberry finish. Kind of like a chocolate blueberry muffin. I dig it.
