4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. The pour was a thick pitch black with a huge (3-4 finger) light/medium brown creamy head that lasted throughout and produced some seriously excellent sheeting of lacing which totally engulfed the glass.
The aroma was a tad sweet and had a strong blueberry presence along with some roasted chocolate malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate and roasted coffee.
The taste was extremely malty and a bit sweet with the blueberry presence right up front and then progressed into a mild bitter taste with notes of coffee and chocolate (which fought for dominance with the blueberry) before having a mildly sweet finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow with a nice bitter sweet blueberry chocolate taste, which lead up to a slight alcohol warming sensation at the end.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall a brew which has a mild battle of flavors fighting on the taste buds, eventually neither wins and they wind up blending in a superb fashion creating a fantastic explosion of flavor that leaves you wanting more...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of creamy off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is blueberry and chocolate with citrus notes. Taste is a blueberry and chocolate malty sweetness with a light citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding fruit beer with a nice balance of flavors and body. Very tasty and recommended.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; pours dark brown with a khaki head; aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, some coffee, and blueberries; taste is bittersweet with chocolate, blueberries, malt, and coffee; has dry bitter coffee finish with a hints of chocolate and blueberries; this seems more like a blueberry porter than a radler to me; very good beer nonetheless

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep brown, actually black with a medium tan head. Aroma is blueberries and deep roasty malts. Taste is the same, but leading to some chocolate covered blueberries for a quick finish. There’s a little bitterness in the finish too, but it doesn’t linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 11/11/11 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle with Ryan. Pours opaque dark brown with an oily purple tint and an average tan head that recedes to a thin, even layer of lace. The nose is fresh, over ripe blueberry with underlying dark chocolate, roasted coffee malt, and the very lightest hint of banana yeast. The flavor is more focused on the roasted bitter coffee and chocolate and the fresh over ripe blueberry in the background. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter dark chocolate, coffee, and blueberry finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black, persistent head.
Showy nose, complex and pleasant.
Medium body, moderately assertive flavor, well balanced mouthfeel, good carbonation and alcohol heat, long palate.
Nicely bitter and not dry,
Roast flavors, not obviously fruity but pleasant, all the same.
Interesting combination, good as a porter.

Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose has some nice blueberry along with toasted caramel notes in there. Taste actually has a nice mix of chocolate and blueberry, and tastes like a treat my wife would like (that I’d steal some of). Decent brew.

1.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma of intense blueberries, taste is blahh, no thank you. Money wasted on this one. Blueberries and chocolate but in a very unsatisfying way. I love blueberries and was looking forward to this. Never again.
