3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pitch black beer has a tiny, dark brown head that doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty, roasted and very strong, with delicious notes of dark caramel, dark chocolate and a faint fruity touch, without being particularly blueberry-ish. Strong malty roasted flavour, again with lots of dark caramel and chocolate, but also with darker roasted notes of coffee. There is also a noticeable and recognisable sweet fruity part: this is definitely blueberries! The taste is moderate sweet, the finish is moderate bitter and there are also some very light acidic hints. Mid-bodied, dry and with a soft carbonation. Finally a blueberry stout with just the right amount of berries!
[35.5 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12 oz). From Andrew, thanks! No idea of how fresh/old it is.
Appearance: Black with a medium quickly diminishing dark brown head and no lacing.
Aroma: Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, light/moderate blueberry presence and hints of smoke.
Taste: Taste is mostly of chocolate and blueberries along some roasted malt, hints of smoke, moderate sweetness and molasses.
Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Kind of oily mouthfeel. Roasty finish. Short berries aftertaste.
Overall: The blueberries blend surprising well with the other components of the beer. It’s quite tasty and there’s an easy recognizable blueberry presence, but it quickly become cloying especially considering the rather low abv. I liked it, but didn’t finish the bottle.

Pours a deep dark brown with, I believe I saw, a blue tinge with a light brown head which lingers and laces nicely......aroma of coffee, smokeyness......taste is very clean, hits with a smoked coffee taste, booze kicks in then blueberry in the end. Quite an enjoyable quaff on this cold winter’s night. Well done.

Bottle. Pours black with a deep brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma combines roasted malts, light smoke, bitter chocolate and blueberries with a dark grain backbone. Flavor has dark grains, bitter chocolate and roasted malts supported by blueberry and a hint of smoke in the finish.

Draft at Gingerman. Deep stout pour you know what I’m talking about. Thin head lovely nose of blueberry and chocolate. Tastes of plums, molasses, chocolate, and plenty of blueberry goodness. Bitter palate. Very enjoyable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with limited dark khaki head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, sweet blueberry. Taste matches the aroma fault closely. Lots of roasty, chocolately malt flavor with a bit of trailing blueberry sweetness and very slight tartness. Very tasty and balanced but does not open up and develop as it warms as other stouts often will, drinks better cold. Pretty solid overall.
