3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a nearly black color, similar to the Too cream stout. Aggressively poured, this features a four-finger tan colored head. Like its brethren, it seriously looks like an imperial stout.
S: There is some unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley here, but beneath that is a slight hint of blueberry. Not enough to kill the balance by any stretch, but enough to interest the olfactory senses.
T: At first, the typical notes of roast, chocolate, and coffee open things up. But then the finish comes, loaded with blueberry. I feel like the blueberry notes do a good job of not getting in the way of the stout qualities - some sips sees the roast/chocolate win out, others see the blueberry as the dominant flavor. Ultimately, the two elements blend together reasonably well.
M: Compared with One and Too, this seems rather thin. This aids drinkability admirably, however it doesn’t have the decadent feel of the other two.
O: Not a pure stout, but it works well as a stout/fruit beer hybrid. The blueberry does a good job of blending in with the base, never fully overpowering things. I’d gladly drink this one again.

Lukter blåbær med en gang, men kaffe og svisker kommer mere fram etterhvert. Fyldig og lite kullsyre. Kort bitter ettersmak med noe alkoholvarme i avslutningen.

Blåbær lukt med en gang går over til tyngre lukt. Muligens kaffe. Litt blå skjær i skumnet. Mørk sjokolade

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.33l bottle. This one has a nice deep dark brown looking body and only a small but lasting and elegantly lacing dark brown head. On the our it’s so lovely roasted and totally unexpected fantastic shampoo-like fruity. There’s just so many nice things to say about this lovely aroma. It’s sweet but not to sweet in any way. Really fruity, but still relatively toasty and roasty so there’s never really any doubt that it’s a stout creation this. Mild vanilla and some hints of herbs in the background. Really nice! Tastes lovely also. Roasted but almost a bit like drinking a cloud. Yeah, it actually has a oil-cloudy mouthfeel this and it’s soft and only prickling on the bubbles. I would not at first been able to identify the taste as blueberries, not now either to be honest, but it’s definitely fruity! More like blackberries blended with currants in a way. Lots of nice sweet chocolate and even a little coffee latte here. I get the same aftertaste in the mouth that I get when I’ve had a good fat-milked latte. A lovely little stout this. I’ll sure be picking up another bottle or two of this - if there’s any left. 13.06.2014

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a think caramel head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and blueberries. Taste is heavy, but full of dark chocolate, roasted malt and of course blueberries. The blueberries are not overpowering and just subtle enough to know they’re there. Good stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Dark brown to black body, with a very thin, dark tan, creamy head, that dissipates immediately. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, blueberry, wood. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, wooden, with dark chocolate, coffee and a slight acidity from the blueberries. Tasty! The chocolate and coffee notes blend very well with the sweet blueberries, which appear more and more the more it warms up. Smooth and well balanced. Really enjoyable!
