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. Dark brown with a large cappuccino head. Huge aroma of blueberry ice cream, chocolate. Taste: blueberry ice cream, sweet licorice, chocolate, quite gentle but packed with flavour. Quite full-bodied and smooth. I can understand why some people think this is too much, but for me this combination is spot on.

Yet another beer on my quest to tick every blueberry related creation that the beer world has to offer, except for Blabaer. This one looks promising. Finally a blueberry beer I can take seriously! This bottle arrived today courtesy of BrewerB, thanks Brian! Kudos to you sir for knocking off one of my wants. It was so random, I never even thought about it being a possibility for this package haha. It pours a dark, dark chestnut brown in color with amber highlights and a one finger, very smooth and creamy beige colored head. It looks like a legit and smooth drinker. When I popped the cap I instantly got a nice dose of blueberry cobbler. It wasn’t cloying and is surprisingly very authentic. Just what I wanted! Aside from the heap of blueberries you get a nice soft blend of dark roasted malts, light chocolate, and some toffee. I could smell this all day. The flavors are a perfect mix of sweet, yet not overdone and very authentic blueberries, light coffee, cream, roasted malts, and chocolate. Dear god I couldn’t have imagined it to be much better. I could pour this on my ice cream. My grandparents would love this just because they love cobbler and coffee. It drinks medium to full in body and drinks more like a stout, which is perfect. Overall this beer was everything I wanted it to be. I actually never thought it could be this good. Great beer to sit back and enjoy to yourself. Thanks again Brian, you hit this one on the head!

Bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on September 27. Pours reddish black with a brown head. Smell is full of blueberries with some notes of dry sparkling wine. Taste is malty with an almost chemical blueberry taste similar to blueberry candy. Aftertaste is very porterlike with roasted malt and coffee. The beer kinda tastes like liquid blueberry pie...

SirLimpsalot (1955) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2011
Hade en mycket stor doft av blåbär i början – en doft som sprider sig direkt efter att kapsylen är borta. Tyvärr tyckte jag doften försvann ganska snabbt och övergår till något allt för artificiellt. Smaken är konstgjord och mycket överparfymerad. Ganska besk och mycket jobbig i längden.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of blueberries, roasted malt and toffee. Sweet, quite strange, one-dimensional and not so fun in the long run.

22oz bomber. Pours deep dark reddish brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma is intense yet wonderful with blueberries. There is some malt and toasted bread character in the aroma, too, but it is mostly ripe blueberry. Flavor starts bready with touches of bread crust, toffee, and loads of blueberry. Towards mid-palate, a slight astringency from fruit and alcohol emerges alongside a bready malt character with growing chocolate flavors. Finish has some dry cocoa, bready yet dry maltiness (crusty, toasty), blueberry, and slight alcohol bitterness. Berry+chocolate after-taste. Quite balanced and tasty. Mouthfeel is dry with pleasant level of crisp suds and medium body. Overall, an expected delight: delicious! I really liked this beer -- a fantastic balance of blueberries and chocolatey Scotch ale.

Pours almost black with a light brown head. The aroma is dominated by sweet blueberries (or perhaps undefiened Forrest fruits). The mouth got some roasted malts along side the blueberries.
