Heavy roasted malt notes in aroma and flavor, but tremendously smooth. Nice blueberry flavor doesn’t take over, and is a nice complement to its light body and fireside roast bitterness. Yummy

Excalibur123 (191) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2014
Color negro intenso con media corona de espuma de baja retención aunque perdura un fino velo en el borde de la copa; en nariz aromas potentes a chocolate negro, café moka, frutos negros y licor; en boca entrada potente y maltosa con fuerte carácter; cuando coge temperatura gana en intensidad aromática, siguen notas a cacao; el alcohol se siente aunque no tiene mucha graduación; trago corto con largo pos gusto y notas dulces; una excelente stout compleja y bien balanceada.

dnicolaescu (947) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2014
BOTTLE 12 OZ. The aroma is very intense, even for a 7.5% stout - lightly smoked prunes, molasses, chocolate. The body is more drinkable than the bold aroma suggests, with lots of roasted/burned malts and ashes, and hints of tannic mildly acidic ground berries. Excellent.

pilgrimoutlaw (805) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle pours dark reddish black with tan head. Roast, coffee, blueberry, earth, chocolate. Moderately bitter and sweet. Lightly crisp, medium body. Blueberry’s a bit of a gimmick, but nothing to complain about here.

koshack (207) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Piana drobna, kawowa, szybko opadła. Bez śladów na szkle. Kolor czarny, smolisty, nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie wyraźne jagody. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się nuty słodkiej czekolady. Lekki aromat ciepłego ciasta. lekko kwaskowaty zapach przypomina zapach mrożonych jagód. W smaku ciemne słody, zdecydowane jagody. Pozostawia lekko słonawy posmak.

Lowenbrau (2247) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 6, 2014
35cl bottle @El Cabanón, Avilés. 27-04-2014.
In short: smooth tasty ale.
Pours very dark with nice very tan head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Roasty, liquorice, fruity aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is roasty, creamy, some fruity. Very smooth and pleasant.

bottle pour from stout variety pack...glug glug from bottle..black hue with a slight head that yes has a blueberry tint..nose is fruit dominant with good quality blueberries not fake or artificial at all..palate is really smooth and tasty..the blueberry is a nice addition to the mix here and makes this an interesting beer..finishes with a nice slight tartness on the end..mixed in with some good more typical chocolate character from the style..quite enjoyable and damn this would pair exceptionally well with some blueberry pancakes at brunch...worth seeking out

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2014
at olbaren in copenhagen. dark brown with a purple tinge, modest head; somewhat medicinal aroma with the blueberry restrained; plenty of rich chocolatey flavours balance surprisingly well with the sweet blueberry character also offering a touch of acidity
