UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Very slight smell of blueberry. Not much blueberry flavor, mostly regular stout. Nothing to special here, a little disappointed. Expected more fresh blueberry notes.

Thick oily black engine oil with a beige layer. Decent first impression. Dark malt, some coffee and blueberry in my nose. Yeah I like! Solid fine body. Pleasant mild sweetness and a moderate bitterness. A bit oily texture. Well what matters most? Taste off course. Is this one ok? Yes! No worries. Lovely smooth flavor and you can easily feel the blueberry. Not to often, and it is not to dominant either. Fine balance. Also some mild coffee and chocolate. Nice and pleasant stout!
[Bottle form Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, Norway]

Draft->mini tumbler at Spacebar. Deep brown with bare head. Dark chocolate, light espresso notes, with sweet blueberries. Better than I expected.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Svart farge. Beige skumtopp. Lavt karbonert. Smaker jord, aske, brent malt og blåbær. Definitivt den beste Blåbærstouten jeg har hittil.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong blueberry pancake and roast. Thin mouthfeel with strong blueberry, light roast, dark chocolate, easy to drink, very good.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours pitch black with a creamy tanned head. Smell of dark dark roasted malts, blueberries, leather, coffee and hints of tobacco. Moderate sweet, quite toasty at first, then a blend of highly roasted malts and fruity blueberries. Quite unusual flavor profile, but i think it works quite well. Some tar and ashtray in the back, quite light mouthfeel, not that heavy oily as expected from the color. Moderate bitter, earthy and toasty finish. Very nice blueberry stout. I’ve tasted a few of them now, and this is by far the best of them. Really good stuff

JBPortland (684) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12oz bottle pours dark black-brown with very little head. Nose is a combo of earthy wet roast coffee grounds, dark baker’s chocolate, and blueberry pie. Taste is rich bitter chocolate, earthy roast, dark fruit, and of course jammy blueberry. Finish is sweet berry and dark baker’s chocolate, some earthy soil. Overall pretty well executed and rather good, better than expected.

Keg at Earl of Essex, Islington, London. A black coloured pour with a fading medium tan head on top. Rich, malty, chocolate, blueberry aroma. Tastes similar, rich, malty, chcocolate, blueberry, almost creamy texture. Lovely blueberry stout, so good I had 3 half pints and left with that luscious blueberry taste in my mouth.

Bleuets et chocolat c’est un alliage parfait et ce liquide ne s’enfarge pas dans la surdose. C’est superbement balancé, le chocolat noir et les bleuets s’ébattent dans un corps onctueux qui se termine sèchement. Les notes rôties sont adéquate ainsi que l’amertume. Un dessert douillet.

Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate, but the blueberries are definitely the dominant flavour. Flavour is roasty malty, blueberry, a little sweetness. Very refreshing. I loved the way blueberry was included in the flavour.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black, with a minimal, tan head. The aroma is immediate fresh blueberries, caramel, and bread, with some notes of chocolate and char. The flavor is sweet, with some light roasted bitterness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, and thick. Overall, this is a nice and well made fruit stout, with a good, blueberry cobbler nose. The flavor is a little disappointing, but not bad.
