COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smashed Blueberry is the newest beer in Shipyard Brewing Company’s Pugsley’s Signature Series line. This beer is a hybrid between a Porter and a Scotch Ale and has a rich mouth feel and a body of complex intensity. Upfront, there are distinct flavors of coffee and chocolate beautifully accentuated by the aroma of fresh blueberries. The finish features a delicate balance of sweet fruit and dry hops. This beer pairs well with glazed duck, ribs, barbeque, chocolate, and blueberry deserts. To fully experience all the flavors, Smashed Blueberry is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Bottle, 0.65 l, at Hilpeä Hauki, 20120605) The beer poured almost black with red shading. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had blueberry, roasted malts, sweetness and chocolate. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, chocolate, blueberries, ash, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, burnt and bitter. A tasty combination of blueberries and stout.

Very blueberry in all aspects. It gets old after a while, but still very authentic in its presentation. Tastes like you smashed a shit load of blueberries into a light porter. Very chocolaty, roasty, and fruity all at once. A bit too much blueberry for me, but still very nice for a sipper.

pours black with a creamy foamy tan head... aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, blueberries... flavor has all of these up front. the blueberry is not too strong but definitely comes through, especially at warmer temperatures and even lasts a little until the chocolatey bitter finish takes over... nice silky body on this beer!

marcus (7453) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours black with a rich tan head and a coffee and blueberry aroma. There is a smoky chocolate and blueberry flavor with some coffee and a dry finish. It’s and interesting blend of tastes.

doublebock (525) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Black with creamy beige foam. Blueberry and chocolate aroma. Creamy roasted and sweet malt texture with strong but not overwhelming blueberry flavor-sort of like a blueberry poptart.

22, capped and foiled. Pours black with a gigantic surging dark tan head that fades quickly, but leaves tons of lace and a bit of a disc of mousse. Looks nice. Big fresh sweet berry nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Dark coffee and bittersweet chocolate dominate the mid palate, plus some milk chocolate sweetness. The finish washes out with nice fruit and some crispness from the hops, as promised on the label. Easily the finest thing Shipyard has done in a while, maybe ever. Might even be worth drinking again.

Aroma- huge blueberries, other berries, astringency, roasted notes Appearance- dark brown/ black, thin white head, hints of blue? Taste- blueberries, roasted notes, some chocolate, breadiness Palate- thinner body, decent mouthfeel Overall- Not bad at all. Pretty much what I was expecting. Very unique and quite intense.

Dark almost opaque black color, small beige head. Strong tasty aroma of blueberries, some toasted maltyness, maybe chocolate. Medium to full-bodied. Sticky palate. Tasty fresh blueberry flavor, some caramel, toasted maltyness and chocolate. Suprisingly good and balanced beer from Shipyard.

22 oz. from Chuck’s. Tastes exactly as advertised. Playfully sweet with the robustness of a good porter. On top of it all is the distinct aroma of blueberries. Delicious little brew.
