Bottled 650ml (Hilpeä Hauki)
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.

I really enjoyed this beer. The aroma was pure blueberries. The mouth feel is sticky, but not too heavy. Taste is outstanding. I will be picking up a few more bottles to enjoy with a summer BBQ or a dessert!

Bottle. Pours brown with a soapy khaki head that settles to a wispy film and tight collar. Aroma is strong blueberries and chocolate malt and some subtle tartness. Taste is big mix of chocolate and blueberries with a little tartness and a malty background with slight acidic notes. Palate is medium and sticky with a dry acidic finish. Really enjoyable, but wish it was either more fruity tart or more blueberry porter. I’m to confused which way I want it to go.

Started promisingly with great aroma but porter chocolate/coffee overwhelmed the blueberry. Too bad because it smelled great but just didn’t deliver. If I had wanted a ,stout/porter it would have been great. Disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is, oddly enough, blueberry. Pours a dark brown, blue color with a blue hinted head. The taste was a bit of a surprise, coffee, heavy malt, and less blueberry than the aroma let on to, and a heavy mouthfeel. Quite a nice change of pace.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Certainly odd. Dark brown pour with a big off white head. Plenty of blueberry in this one, some grape drank, caramel, toffee, maybe a bit of chocolate. It’s not loaded with buttered popcorn which is a plus from these guys.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Strong aroma of cooked blueberries, like a blueberry pie, upon opening the bottle, some coffee. Looks like a fairly standard porter, dark brown/black with a moderate off-white head. Little bit sticky on the sides. Coffee and roasted malt up from on the taste with blueberry tartness and a touch of smokiness on the finish. Slight alcohol burn, but very smooth. Overall, blueberry coffee cake. The berry is not too sweet and does not taste artificial so it blended into the overall package very well.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bottle:Pours a dark coffee brown with some ruby tones and a medium light tan head that is mostly lasting. Malty sweet aroma is blueberries and cocoa. Has sweet flavors of fresh blueberries, coffee and chocolate. Creamy texture with a mild dry finish. Paired well with grilled chicken and dark chocolate. Delicious!

Very impressive. First time trying the Pugsley Series. Hint of blueberry nothing over the top following an excellent robust flavor. Smooth palate.
