Pour is dark brownish black with a thin dense tan head...smell is chocolate and hints of blueberries...taste was sweet with some roasty flavors and chocolate...blueberries come out in the finish...by far the best beer I’ve had there...no reall coffee flavors...

Had on tap at the brewpub in Austin. What were they thinking? I get the joke - this is supposd to be like the "hooch" that inmates make in their toilet. Well, other than not being blue, it is not far from it. Pours a dark ruby red with no real head or lacing. Aroma has some blueberry accents of course, not too natural-like. Flavor is very sweet and fruity and not in a good way, no porter-like qualities to this one. Mouthfeel - well, I was able to drink the whole point so it must have been all right. Bad experiment.

Tap...oh, my. The level of putridity of this beer is freakin' horrible! Minimal blueberry flavor of any kind. Absolutely nasty finish, that lingers unlike anything I've had before. Sick.
