3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Want list bonus from BrianK. Thanks Brian! Dark brown, slightly thick pour with no real head. Big roasted chocolate malt aroma that is cut nicely by assertive blueberries. Taste is a slightly smokey roasted malt with a blueberry finish that starts dry and finishes sweet and fruity. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark reddish brown with a medium brown slowly dissipating head. Aroma of blueberried, roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of smoke. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, blueberries, smoked malts and chocolate. Smooth body has very mild bitterness. Mild dry finish with blueberries slowly creeping into the finish. Not overly sweet, just a well made fruit stout.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a tiny ring of carbonation. Smells amazing, like a confection made of blueberries and dark chocolate. The flavor is less compelling. Lightly sweet yet quite rich malt and blueberry blend with a drier finish. Worth a try, at least.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Initial appearance is amazing, heavy pure black pour with a tiny head. The aroma leads you to think that damn, this just may taste pretty good. It smells like a good combination of roasted malts and blueberries. But then you get down to the flavor. To me, this tasted like soy sauce. I think the combination of the roasted malts and blueberry flavoring or whatever was used just doesn’t work at all. But then again, maybe this would pair well with some good chinese food.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle acquired via polomagnifico. What a great beer. Such a low ABV for such a mightly little bottle!!! Jet black with a mocha colored head that hangs around. An interesting brew with obvious blueberry in the nose and on the palate. Somehow, the blueberry tartness/fruitiness plays well with the chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt of the stout. Not syrupy at all...just a nice subtle nuance that makes it unique.

ours dark as india ink, making me wonder about the ABV until I tasted it. That flavor isn’t actually all that bad - the blueberries are relatively subtle there until you get to the finish, where you do get too much blueberry. But goodness, the aroma: canned blueberry syrup like what you’d get at Waffle House. This one totally doesn’t work for me. There’s some nice bitter chocolate tones in there, but man....it’s a blueberry mess. Huge disappointment.
