12oz bottle. Pours black with a small chocolate head. Awesome aromas of chocolate, blueberry, and toffee. The light blueberry flavor was just right, balanced by a heavy malt presence and a tiny bit of hops.

Very dark in color, like dark treacle. Very little blueberry flavour, just enough to provide a small degree of fruity sweetness at the end. Perhaps a little medicinal in taste but overall very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a black body and a thin off white head with some minor ruby brown hues. Aroma and flavor is sweet blueberry pie, a little etoh, sweet bitter chocolate malt and a touch of blueberry. The finish is a nice blueberry flavor.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 Thanks xnoxhatex! Pours dark thick black with a wonderful brown chocolate creamy froth. Great aroma of smokey woody blueberries! Flavor follows, quite smokey and woody with a great chocolate blueberry vanilla spice flavor. Medium bodied, creamy with light carbonation. This stuff is very yummy! 9.5.8.4.17 [Rerate - 09 bottle enjoyed 2.7.09] Pours a very dark unclear brown with a medium bubbly brown froth, 4.5. Aroma is similar to previous description with maybe a bit more green hops and some blueberry muffin. Nice sweet chocolate flavor and slightly tart tangy blueberries with a bit of hops and hint of smokiness. Medium bodied, actually a bit thin, large soft carbonation bubbles. Love the blueberry accents and its quite drinkable, more like a blueberry porter. 8.4.8.4.16

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours a charcoal brown with no head. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is toasted malts and coffee with a very light creamy fruit undertone that adds a creaminess to the flavor. Beyond that it isn’t ’blueberry’ just this creamy sweetness that has an accent more than just sugar. complex flavor. Body is fairly thick light carbonation. Very impressed with this beer.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
12 oz bottle. Opens with a very faint escape of carbonation, almost too little to hear.Dark dark black in color, almost no head to speak of. I was a bit skeptical of this beer, because I thought the blueberries would overwhelm. However, I’m pleasantly surprised. They play a very minimal role in the flavor. Prominent flavors are milk chocolate, roasted malts, and chocolate covered blueberries. Definitely a sweet stout. Full bodied, a bit syrupy. Solid.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Beer from discoun Opaque black with that dark burn head, not unlike dark lord. Intense blueberry, and dark malt. Bitter blueberry, with a slight sweetness, but overall very dry,slight roast and smoke as well. This is overall a pretty great stout, sweet yet dry, very nice.

Caramel colored head. Aroma of light roasted malt. Flavor is where the blueberry really comes through. Back end flavors of cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. You are left with a mice sweetness. This would make a great dessert beer.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 pours black with brown thin head. Chocolate roast and blueberry aromas. Flavor similar dark chocolate, coffee, and blueberry sweetness. Something in the finish has a medicinal quality, however a very interesting decent stout.
