3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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; itís been a while since Iíve 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. Iíve 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.

Appearance: near black, creamy tan head. Aroma: strong chocolate roast, hint of blueberry and vanilla. Taste: tastes like nothing so much as a chocolate chip blueberry muffin. Finish: roasty, slightly dry, with a nice bit of blueberry must. Notes: The flavor combo isnít my favorite, but this was extremely well executed. Good palate. Bottle from Total Wine in McLean, VA.

Draft at the Pump House. Very dark with a one finger tan head. Some blueberry and coffee in the aroma. The berry is not tasted as prominently but is there. Coffee, tobacco, and roast. Malts are big. Semi sweet to dry. I like blueberry in a beer and wish it had been bigger. A nice beer.

Opaque black pour a beautiful deep brown head slightly tinged with red. Aroma is little bits of blueberry over roast malts. Delicious on the tongues, the bitter and roasted cocoa powder plays well with the sweet malt and blueberry flavors. Smooth and fairly thick mouthfeel is pleasant and suits the style. Great adjunct stout.

Draft at Beer Market. Huge aroma of blueberry muffins, jet black with minimal head. Surprisingly not as much blueberry when tasted. Flavors of chocolate, roasted malt with subtle blueberry. Very surprised!
