Pours a cola brown color with a quickly vanishing tan head. Aroma of blueberry, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. More roasted malt and chocolate flavor than blueberry, but blueberry is present. Very well-balanced beer.

pours unclear very darn brown with a small beige cap showing minimal retention and lacing. luscious chocolate and lightly smoked roasted malted goodness, with distinct blueberries blending in superbly, chocolate-covered blueberries, some dried and sweetened blueberries, woodsy, clean yeast, hint of sweetness - molasses, bit of juicy meat. light carbonation, medium body - oily, semi-sweet and woodsy-grassy-gently smoked finish. excellent fruit stout.

Holmen1 (2550) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2014
Fra fat på Cardinal under Bjørnøy Rundt Triathlon okt-14: Pent beige skum over en kølsvart øl, og opp fra dette stiger en liflig blåbæraroma i elegant samspill med god sjokolade og like god kaffe. Smaken er også helt på topp, hvor den fine syren fra blåbærene er prikken over i’en. En nytelse fra første sniff til siste dråpe.

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Aroma of blueberries, chocolate, vanilla, mild coffee and moderately roasted malts. Pleasant flavour of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and blueberries, a slight fruity acidity, dry finish with moderate hops. Very enjoyable.

4.5%? seriously? probably the best use of blueberry (a fruit i generally don’t prefer in beer, though i like blueberries) in a brew that i’ve ever tried. huge blueberry aroma, not in the least fake, like it usually turns out. pretty thick for a low abv beer. the flavor is more stout than the aroma, which was 50 50 at best. nice roasted malt, chocolate, berries, with a slight lingering tart berry finish mixed in with roasty goodness. surprisingly well done."

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a pitch black colour with a medium, creamy, light brown head. Roasted and sweet aroma of coffee, ash, dark chocolate, leather and oak. Roasted malt also in the flavour along with more ash, wood and coffee beans. Has a slick and silky mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A well-roasted and pleasant stout, but can’t find much of the blueberries.

Ron (2566) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle. Very dark black pour. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted grain, coffee and blueberries. Taste is roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted grain and some blueberries. just enough that you can taste it and so that it melds nicely with the traditional stout flavors. It has a light-to-medium body. A very nice stout that I would drink again.

12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Shared with Bob F. after work. Pours a thin black color with a small foamy dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate, light sweet artificial blueberry, and roasted malt. Taste of sweet blueberry up front, followed by dark roasted malt, and milk chocolate.
