Tried not rate this too low, considering that I am not a big fan or stouts with fruit. I think considering that, this is a good one for the style. Nice malt and chocolate, with a bitter backbone, and faint finishing blueberries, or at least dark fruits. If you like stouts with fruit, try this one.

Draught at Rich Oís. Pours black with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma is blueberry muffins, anise, and some spice. The flavor is blueberry, lemon, coffee, cinnamon, and scented candles. The finish is slightly floral. This mixture of flavors didnít really float my boat, but itís still a pretty good beer.

Bottle picked up my father in Michigan. Thaks Pops! Pour is dark dark dark brown with a thin tan head that fades. Lacing throughout. Nose is of chocolate, roasted malts, and blueberries. So far, so good. Taste is full with chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee (didnt smell any of it, weird), roasted malts, and some fruitiness in the end but it would be hard for me to decipher blueberries. Thin to Medium body with a smooth, bitter and fruity finish. A unique beer and really much better than your average dry stout.

12 oz bottle pours a thick oily black color with a tiny brown lacing that quickly fades. Aroma of roasted chocolate malts and faint bluberries. Taste is of bitter chocolate, roasted malts and blueberries. The blueberries taste really ripe and fresh. An innovative yet excellent brew.

Bottle from tjthresh, thanks Tom! Pour is black, with a nice fluffy tan head. There is some nice lacing and carbonation in the pour. The aroma is Blueberry, roasted malt, and dark chocolate sweetness in that order. Surprisingly, the taste not big Blueberry, more of a roasty stout with Blueberry highlights. The balance of this one was really nice, though not sure if this is personal favorite style.

12oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a dark, dark brown color with a maroon tinge; medium tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Blueberries and roasted malts and bitter chocolate in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel, with light carbonation: shows overripe blueberries and roasted malts upfront, followed by dark chocolate and hints of a citrus bitterness; well-balanced and maintains a pleasant viscosity for a 4.5% beer. Ends quite dry, showing milk chocolate and roasted malts.

Aroma of fresh blueberries hit me as i cracked open the bottle... smelled like fresh blueberry syrup. Flavors of chocolate malt and blueberries, but was a bit too much like cough syrup.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jet black pour with a light, quick to dissipate brown head. Very tight bubbles form the head and it is quick to be stirred back up with just a swish of the glass. Light fruit in the aroma and I actually believe blueberry. Semi-sweet and cream to the nose. The flavor is light blueberry fruit at the very beginning. Toasted/roasted grain come fast behind it with semi-sweet malt and perhaps some light chocolate or nougat. Semi-dry medium body.

12 oz. bottle via trade (canít remember who, sorry) - Pours a dark brown color with a 3/4 finger thick tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is basicly Blueberries. Flavor is roasted malt with a touch of bluberry. Has a bitter, thin palate. Light to medium body. This beer could use a tad more in the mouthfeel and body departments. Still, a decent beer. Thanks to whomever sent this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Thick, oily pour. Opaque black with a thick brown head. Attractive aroma of chocolate and distinct blueberry with a whiff of burnt stick. Slightly sweet and fruity on the tongue. Pretty unique pairing of roasty and chocolatey malt with just the right amount of blueberry flavor. Full bodied and delicious. Kind of like coffee and blueberry pie.
