COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hermod (3905) - Vantaa, - DEC 2, 2012
65cl bottle @ Pikkulintu. Dark brown color with a beige head. Strong blueberry aroma, quark/ yoghurt like dessert. Flavor is blueberry juice, grain, chocolaty notes. Sweet chocolate continues in the finish as well. Hides alcohol well. Quite nice really.

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.

gopherfan99 (777) - CROATIA - APR 30, 2015
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

Interesting brew , it has hints of porter, the obvious fruit influence, but quite a light body

Very smooth with a blueberry taste. A porter and IPA mix one of the best IPA I've had .very little bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

S_Side_Smitty (558) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2015
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.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2014
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.

CpyNPrnT (474) - Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2014
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.
