3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Part of me wants to love this beer (stout) and part of me wants to hate it (fruit), so I was a little torn trying this. Pours a dark mahogany with a dark tan head with nice lacing. The aroma initially is blueberries, but then some malt comes through as this breathes a little. The taste is malt heaven, with just a trace of blueberry, with a coffee finish. Damn this is better than I expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
>(draft) A stout, not just an ale, which was news to me. I didnít get much of an aroma from this, and the blueberry flavor was more subtle that I was expecting. The blueberries showed up mostly in the finish, which had absolutely no trace of bitterness. The undertones were mostly roasted malt, and the flavor slanted a tad more towards coffee than chocolate. A very good beer, worth the wait.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark, deep brown with a really big frothy chocolaty head. Aroma is strong of blueberry and chocolate. Flavor is burnt grain, coffee and a little less blueberry flavored than the aroma indicated. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth (maybe like chocolate milk). Iím not totally sold on the blueberry... itís interesting and definitely adds something, but Iím not sure at what cost. Definitely worth trying, probably wonít work itís way into the regular rotation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, via Styles. Black as motor oil pour with a thin covering of a chocolate brown head. Enormous fresh blueberry pie aroma over a dark roasted malt base. Some light coffee and alcohol peeking through. Roasted and burnt malt flavor backed up by fresh blueberries. Coffee and light alcohol in the finish. Thick and full bodied mouthfeel with light fine bubbled carbonation. Probably the most interesting fruited stout Iíve had. Youíd think from the aroma that this would be an overly sweet blueberry bomb, but they do an amazing job of maintaining the integrity of the base beer.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Black with a thick but short lived tan head. I havenít smelled blueberries this rich since my last IHOP trip. Taste is really full with the fresh berries with some chocolate behind it. Some cigar flavor in there also.
