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.

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.

pours black with a non existent head. The aroma of blueberries is awesome when you open this one . The taste is light blueberry and a lot of bitterness.

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.

Dark and sweet tastes like blueberry pancakes. Porter mixed with a scotch ale is a great description. Chocolate mixed with blueberries. Nice high octane brew.
