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.

Pours a very dark brown color with a thin off-white head and just a spot or two of lacing. The nose carries some pretty heavy blueberry character. A light bit of roast and chocolate behind. Flavor is predominantly blueberry and is fairly one-dimensional. Not much other than blueberries. Touch of malt in the background. Medium body. Decent, but mostly just another fruit beer.

Bottle. Pours almost black with a medium, tan head. Strong real blueberry aroma with a hint of roasted malts. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate and real blueberry. A hint of hops in the finish. Very good for a fruit beer.

Bottle from Scott. Aroma was of faint blueberry and soft lager. Flavor was of chocolate, light coffee, and blueberries. Surprisingly satisfying on the palate. I imagine a little age on this would go a long way, since there are several styles mixed up. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shipyard Smashed Blueberry is a solid dark brown ale with an espresso colored head that leaves very nice lacing on the glass. It has a strong aroma of fresh blueberries. It fills the room. It’s full bodied, smooth and soft. It leaves the tongue like a smooth paste. The blueberry is detected right at the beginning of the sip, then a bitter resiny flavor takes over and hits with the intensity of whiskey. There’s a long, bitter aftertaste of juniper and black pepper. Wow, this is maybe a little too intense for me. It’s strong and it tastes even stronger than the ABV would indicate. 22 oz. feels like a commitment. This is the opposite of refreshing, but it works fine on a cold winter night.

Bottle via StateLine. Dark brown in color, small head that didnt stick around. Lots going on in the aroma. Initally pick up some chocolate, sweet malts, peat with lots of blueberries. Lots of distinct flavors as well. Chocolate, blueberries, mossy/peat notes. All are very nice but I think the chocolate takes away from the blueberries. The alcohol is hidden very well. Never would of guessed this to be over 6 percent alcohol. Medium body, kind of oily. Overall: I love blueberries, so this is right up my alley.

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2012
Enligt bryggeriet en porter/scotch ale med blåbär. Mycket blåbärsdoft i kombination med knäckiga malttoner. Ja det är nästan som att drick en blåbärspaj. Tycker också att det finns en havretouch i den runda lena kroppen. Torr avslutning med en försiktig beska känns helt rätt. Smaskens

Lightly roasted malt notes that are a bit smoky with pleasant blueberry notes shining through nicely. Pours dark chesnut amber with an off white head. The flavor has almost no notes of the blueberry, a tad at the beginning come in nicely, then more of a light barleywine base with some sweet malts and a bit of the roasted porter flavor.

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.
