Deep brown black in color... Aroma of puréed blueberry jam... Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate with distinctive notes of sweet blueberries on the finish... Really complex, very delicious

Pour a dee reddish/purple color with a very small sized head. Aromas of black cherries, caramel and all around berries (cranberries, strawberries and more). Tastes of black berries and all around berries. Had a black cherry tartness in the finish. Light alcohol, that turned stronger as it warmed, in the finish.

Interesting - a twist-off bomber bottle! I don’t get around much anymore but that’s the first time I’ve seen a twist-off of this size. Sadly this lacks any serious head but does have a nice dark black-blue hue to the body. Really like that aroma - a mix of coffee and blueberries, not sweet but separate flavours, smart and sassy like a blueberry chocolate black forest cake. Mmmm. Flavour is a lot of strong and dry coffee and baker’s chocolate notes with a blueberry finish. Just great, well balanced. Smart. Not a major huge work of art but this thing could go great with so many different dinner dishes. Actually serving this with black forest cake at the end of a meal would make for some very happy customers if I don’t say so meself.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color rubino molto scuro, soffice cappello di schiuma marroncino chiaro. Profumo imponente di zucchero caramellato, frutta cotta e mirtilli; gusto inizialmente dolciastro ma un po’ povero, sottile e maltoso. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, evolve verso forti note di mirtillo molto asciutte che ricordano proprio il succo puro. Strana, ma non convincentissima.

355ml twist off bottle. Reddish purple color. Aroma is huge bluberry out of the bottle. In the glass some extra pie crusty maltiness. Falvor is big, blueberry ice cream almost.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Marrom avermelhada, rubi. Espuma bege de boa formação e média persistência. Aroma intenso de blueberry, amoras, groselha, adocicada, malte ao fundo. Paladar trás médio dulçor, notas frutadas e cítricas, álcool bem distribuído mas perceptível. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Aftertaste persistente, alcoólico, leve azedume característico da fruta. Um ótimo exemplar do estilo, boa para harmonizar com sobremesas de frutas.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured on a blueish shade of dark brown? Minimal head and spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, blueberries and booze. Taste is sweet and quite boozy, lots of blueberries and some wood bourbon like notes. Interesting, complex and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz from BottleMixx. Pours deep brown with a small, fizzy head. Aroma reminds me mostly of a barleywine; caramel with fruit underneath and some sweet malts. Taste is very heavy on the blueberry with a slight chocolate flavor on the back end mixing in as well. Very smooth and hides ABV well. I don’t get much of the Scotch Ale flavors that the deScription claims. Body is weird, sort of average with a slick mouthfeel. Might sound like I am down on this beer, but for a fruit beer it is actually pretty good.

bottle. Brown with small head. Very malty base with big boozy blueberry flavor. Light sweetness. I’d imagine if you took a brown ale and added blueberry schnapps, you’d have something like this. I found it to be kind of a mess, personally.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
625ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep brown in colour with a long lasting large tan head, excellent lacing. The aroma has huge amounts of blueberries, icing sugar, light toasted malts. The flavour is of blueberries, some roasted malts, light coffee, sweet and rich. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, light bitterness. A lot of blueberries in this, quite sweet but not taking away from the porter underneath. Nicely done.
