Pours a nice dark color with a frothy tan head that lasts a good while. Aroma is nice and toasty with a great sweet blueberry note also also notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is nice and smooth with toasted blueberry initially with also some coffee notes. The flavor turns into a nice bittersweet finish that stays smooth throughout. Mouthfeel is average and carbonation is decent. Overall this is a great beer I would hapily drink again.

Bottle (12 oz). From Andrew, thanks! No idea of how fresh/old it is.

Appearance: Black with a medium quickly diminishing dark brown head and no lacing.

Aroma: Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, light/moderate blueberry presence and hints of smoke.

Taste: Taste is mostly of chocolate and blueberries along some roasted malt, hints of smoke, moderate sweetness and molasses.

Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Kind of oily mouthfeel. Roasty finish. Short berries aftertaste.

Overall: The blueberries blend surprising well with the other components of the beer. It’s quite tasty and there’s an easy recognizable blueberry presence, but it quickly become cloying especially considering the rather low abv. I liked it, but didn’t finish the bottle.

Voodoo (380) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Pours a deep dark brown with, I believe I saw, a blue tinge with a light brown head which lingers and laces nicely......aroma of coffee, smokeyness......taste is very clean, hits with a smoked coffee taste, booze kicks in then blueberry in the end. Quite an enjoyable quaff on this cold winter’s night. Well done.

deyholla (7154) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a deep brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma combines roasted malts, light smoke, bitter chocolate and blueberries with a dark grain backbone. Flavor has dark grains, bitter chocolate and roasted malts supported by blueberry and a hint of smoke in the finish.

Draft at Gingerman. Deep stout pour you know what I’m talking about. Thin head lovely nose of blueberry and chocolate. Tastes of plums, molasses, chocolate, and plenty of blueberry goodness. Bitter palate. Very enjoyable

TheArgoPirate (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours dark brown with limited dark khaki head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, sweet blueberry. Taste matches the aroma fault closely. Lots of roasty, chocolately malt flavor with a bit of trailing blueberry sweetness and very slight tartness. Very tasty and balanced but does not open up and develop as it warms as other stouts often will, drinks better cold. Pretty solid overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excalibur123 (214) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2014
Color negro intenso con media corona de espuma de baja retención aunque perdura un fino velo en el borde de la copa; en nariz aromas potentes a chocolate negro, café moka, frutos negros y licor; en boca entrada potente y maltosa con fuerte carácter; cuando coge temperatura gana en intensidad aromática, siguen notas a cacao; el alcohol se siente aunque no tiene mucha graduación; trago corto con largo pos gusto y notas dulces; una excelente stout compleja y bien balanceada.
