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 from systembolaget. It poured an almost pitch black liquid with a reddish tint. Lots of blueberry on the nose. Liquorice taste but with some blueberries in the taste. Normally I can’t handle liquorice in a beer, but it wasn’t to powerfull in this one.

On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore. This was interesting. It pours very dark with a stout-like head. The aroma really jumps out as potent blueberry. Not much else registers. After tasting, the cocoa and roasted malt come into play a bit more, but you still get blasted with a nice shot of blueberry flavor. It may taste a bit artificial, but it certainly wasn’t offensive. If you like blueberry, this will probably hit the spot.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of bluebery, cocoa, carmel, toffee and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of blueberry, cocoa, carmel, toffee and light vanilla with a smooth lingering blueberry finish.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Taster from bottle. Pours a purplish black with an offhwite head. Smells of mutes blueberry pie. Tastes like a blueberry pie without the massive sugar you’d expect, with definite porter qualities.

Bottle shared at Paul’s Dec 3rd tasting. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin lacing. Aroma is chocolate and blueberries. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with notes of blueberry, milk chocolate, light roast and toasted bread. Ehhhh.

Wow, blueberry explodes immediately upon popping the top! Pours a blackish, purple with a dark tan head with a hint of purple. Blueberry through and through without being sweet. Dark malty porter like mouthfeel with cocoa and nutty flavors in the background. Good acidity and a nice hint of balancing hop flavor on the finish. Delicious!

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
650ml bottle. Pours very deep mahogany with a purple edge and a tan head. Nose of blueberry filling with a big scotchy edge. Tastes like stewed blueberries and scotch. Interesting but overall a failed experiment I’d say.
