4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a super and surprisingly dark brownish blue color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer massive of a blueberry smell. The blueberry is rather authentic with it giving a rather nice chocolate covered blueberry (with emphasis on the blueberry) smell when mixed with the lighter roasted, cocoa and coffee notes of the beer.
Taste – The taste begins with a big showing of a roasted malt and cocoa flavor with a rather strong showing of blueberry as well. The taste is drier upfront, but as the flavor advances, more and more blueberry flavor comes to the tongue sweetening up the brew a bit. As the blueberry upfront was of a more authentic flavor, as it intensifies more later in the taste profile, it takes on a more blueberry syrup nature. While the blueberry intensifies so too does the cocoa tastes, leaving a rather thick chocolate covered blueberry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the chocolate covered blueberry flavors of the brew both were fantastic creating a very dessert like feel.
Overall – Not overly sweet with a good blend of chocolate and blueberry, all while hiding the 9 % abv rather well. This is an interesting one and a good one to try.

Smelled pretty great but the flavor was lacking. Not the best blueberry beer.

Bottle. Black. Overripe blueberries, malty, light roastedness. Soft body, some chocolate. And blueberries, in a sort of pudding- like way. Pretty nice, at least for a couple of sips.

Very dark with a pale head. Aroma is huge on the blueberry, plum. Medium-light bodied, fruity on the palate with a hint if roast on the finish. Taste is blueberry, plum, chocolate. Yum.

Looks like coke when poured into a glass. Strong blueberry aroma when bottle first opened which dissipates with time. Fizzy in the mouth with a treacly taste at first, smooths out quickly to chocolate flavours and finishes with fruity blueberries. (K)

You have to get this beer fresh. The blueberry taste will fade over time, same as Smashed Pumpkin. It’s mostly Porter like when taking a sip, but the finish is a good blueberry jam like flavor. You need to get it fresh.
