Deep dark pour with a solid, long-lived tan head. The aroma is pretty remarkable - smells like a blueberry pie with hints of chocolate. Much less blueberry in the flavor. Instead, the ratio is flipped and chocolate dominates with hints of blueberry still present. The mouthfeel is a little dry/chalky, but doesn’t detract too much. Nice beer.

You really wouldn't think it would work, but somehow it does. The flavor of the berry without the cloying sweetness. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cette bière qui est noire affiche une belle et solide tête mousseuse brune. Une dentelle se déroule entre chaque gorgée. Son nez est très appétissant avec ses notes rôties, son café, ses parfums de gâteau et ses effluves grandissants de bleuets enrobés de chocolat noir. En bouche, son caractère rôti et torréfié est bien balancé par les saveurs uniques du petit fruit bleu et par les notes plus douces projetées par les malts. Au palais, j’aime la sensation crémeuse de ce corps bien traversé par les bulles. En finale, une bonne dose de torréfaction se manifeste à la remorque d’une expression chocolatée noire et amère.

Blueberry flavoring hard to detect. Nice taste, didn’t love the palate. Great looking dark color.

Bottle, thanks to Bacterial. Thankfully shared with friends. Pours deep dark brown. Aroma is straight up blueberry muffin. This is a brunch beer for sure. Taste: quite floral, artificial blueberry, toast and roast chocolate. Wow ... based on my reaction to Cascade’s Blueberry, there’s a good chance my mouth does not appreciate what blueberries bring to beer. This is a neat novelty beer, and the smell was way cool, but once it got into my mouth all I could think was "gross." But, it’s exactly as it purports to be.

12 oz bottle. Very dark black color. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted grain, coffee and blueberries. Taste is roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted grain and reined-in 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 pleasant stout that I would drink again.

After too cream stout, that seemed quite boring, this is awesome. Blueberry aroma does exactly needed refreshing kick and pleasantly makes up to aroma, palate flavor. In other aspects I liked this brew as well. Sweet, quite light roasted maltiness, bit licorice, nice dark choco and ofc.. blueberries. Well balanced enjoyable brew

I had low expectations, but figured I’d give it a try. This was surprisingly good! Not so much a blueberry flavored beer as it is a nice stout with blueberry sweetness added. You can smell the blueberry right when you crack the cap. Flavors of unsweetened dark chocolate, toasted grains, oats, light cream and blueberry syrup. The blueberry is really kept in line well. My only wish is that the body was heavier. Otherwise, a very good beer.

Bottle. Black pour with a short brown head. Lovely blueberry notes intermingled with roasted malt and dark chocolate make up the aroma. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate covered blueberries, tart berries and coffee notes. Body is medium-full and slightly chewy with a dense, creamy carbonation. Lots of roasted malt and dark chocolate during the finish along with coffee notes (a lot like Green Mountain Wild Mountain Blueberry coffee) and tart blueberries. Nice!
