This ale poured a deep black colour with a nice,big rocky head. Scents include blueberry,cocoa, wine and ripe fruit. First sip was thick and lightly sweet with flavours of flowers, blueberry, grape gum, suttle roast and chocolate. Finish is thick, syrupy, sweet and blueberry flavored.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Much more interesting than any other fruit beer I’ve tried, this one has some remarkable qualities. Pours dark brown with a tan head that lingers. Was not expecting that. Aroma permeates the room thoroughly. Amazing. On closer inspection the smell of fresh smashed blueberry melds with a firm cocoa presence. The flavor continues this chocolate-covered blueberry thing quite well, and as it warms the tart berry comes out more so. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering chocolate aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1819 - 2015.07.06 - Bottle from CBI - Pours a deep mahogany with a bubbly tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is chocolate, roast malts, mild berry jam. Blueberry jam is highlighted on the palate, but doesn’t dominate the porter/scotchy character of roast malt bitterness and toffee, cocoa sweetness. Very nice and understated for a fruit beer.

It has been awhile since I haven’t been able to finish a beer, I’m use to big bottles in large abv’s. Super blueberry aromas, and that was it. It looked nice, but the blueberry aroma, and the malt bill, just left for a boozy awkward flavor that fell down at every chance.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Brown color. Chocolate and blueberry aromas. Taste is sweet bluberries, but never overwhelming, chocolate, roasted. Blueberry taste lingers on during the finish. Feels like a blueberry Imperial Porter. Really cool.

Pours, dark purple red, tan head. Aroma is straight blueberries. Kinda malty almost like blueberry pie. Flavor is caramel, blueberry pie, malty, some of the browned crust. Very thick. Overall very good... quite tasty and refreshing even on a hot day.

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.
