Opaque black with a thin, crema-colored head. Pouring yields the aroma of fresh blueberries, for sure. Second inspectoin yields more blueberries, caramel, nicely roasted malt, light coffee, molasses, cocoa and a hint of woody spice. The body is big and smooth; it’s been a while since I’ve had a stout and this feels good going down. The first sip shows loads of roasted malt character. Nice roasted/burnt bitterness to balance the sweet malt and the subtle blueberry fruit. The cocoa, malt, coffee and caramel are really nice and compliment the fruit well. I’ve been leary of this for some time, wondering what blueberry and stout tasted like togther, but this was really nice. The fruit is subtle, but it adds depth and a unique character to maek something special.

Fairly dark brown, nearly black. Aroma of blueberry and roasted malt. Interesting mix of fruity sweetness, bitter roasted malt, and chocolate.

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.

Svart med lys brunt skum. Flott blåbærlukt, kaffe og sviske. Bitre, salte og noe søtlige fruk og bærsmaker. Kort, lett bitter avslutning. lite kullsyre

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

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are blueberry, roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee - with a slightly bitter finish.

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

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.
