COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our popular Starkweather Stout finished with blueberries and vanilla. The additional flavors blend well with the chocolate character of this beer.

Tap @ Liberty Street: Black center with dark mahogany & ruby tints along the edges. Fine-bubbled tan head retains itself well on top. Mild lacing. Aroma is heaviest on the vanilla. Sweet, smooth vanilla, probably extract but it smells pretty "good" nonetheless. Thereís a deep seeded fruity berry note underneath the vanilla. Comes out more with some warmth. Almost potpourri & syrup-like in nature. Definitely blueberry. Hint of roast. Flavor has a more stable malt body, with a backdrop of roasted malt, light coffee bean, some dry cocoa dust. Blueberry a bit more prominent on the palate, again taking on that potpourri & herbal kind of blueberry tone. Even slightly juicy, almost like a puree. Calming, smooth vanilla in the periphery. Modestly astringent finish with the sharpness of the roast & the light tartness of the blueberry colliding. Somewhat thin mouth feel. While it does come off as mildly "artificial" in flavor at times, itís surprisingly not overdone or overly sweet. Pretty good.

3.8
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Pailhead (5450) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate blueberry, vanilla, light chocolate, and espresso. Itís a dark brown with a two finger soapy beige head that leaves behind some nice rings of lacing. The flavor starts with a good dose of blueberries mixed with some light chocolate. The finish has light-moderate vanilla with a touch of espresso and roast. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, the blueberry stout aspect is excellent. While the vanilla is interesting and good, it does add a sweetness that starts to wear on me after awhile. In comparison to Dark Horse (the only other Blueberry Stout Iíve had), this has a stronger blueberry presence, more espresso than coffee, and added sweetness from the vanilla.
