22oz bottle from Goebel in KS, Love it or hate it, blueberry edition.. nose is very much blueberry and taste doesnt quite meld as well as I thought it might, the berries kind of get lost then appear at will during a sip.. still a unique experience and another fruit beer tried.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012 (?) 22 oz bottle served in a Sweetwater Blue pint glass.
Pours thick and dark with a dense, tan head that has excellent retention.
A malty beer with plenty of natural blueberry aroma, more subtle bluebery flavor and a noticeable hops presence.
Well balanced flavor profile: bitter-sweet, a touch of tartness. Excellent level of blueberry for this malty brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy amber with medium beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a very strong blueberry and some coffee. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter fruit flavor and light coffee in the finish. Decent.

I tend to like fruit beer but blueberries never seem to work. And they didn't here. Pours black to dark brown. Blueberries and chocolate. Mildly bitter.

Belmont bottle found hiding out in the basement. The commercial description above is absolutely, 100% accurate. Like you took a blueberry fruit beer and mixed it together with a good porter and scotch ale. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Tap25 in Livermore. Dark brown, light brown medium head. Smells like fresh blueberries, cocoa. Taste is dark chocolate, blueberries, roasted malt, general sweetness, bitter finish with a hint of coffee bean. Medium carbonation, very (very) smooth. The surprise of the night. No way this tastes like a 9.4%. Not a big fan of Shipyard but well done! This would be a great beer to finish off a night with...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Blueberry, alcohol, cocoa powder, musty malts
Appearance: Opaque black with short lasting khaki head
Taste: Burst of fresh blueberry, mostly sweet
Palate: Blueberry lasts well through the finish leaving a pleasant berry aftertaste
Overall: Pleasantly surprised at how well the blueberry flavor holds up against the porter/dark malts. The berry is not subtle, but also not overbearing or artificial.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprisingly dark and thick. Smells like blueberry pancakes. The blueberry taste overtakes this beer as the sip fades the beer comes back in to the picture.
