Surprised to see the relatively low alcohol content, this has a tendency to warm your stomach like wine does, not one that I would seek out again.

2008 Bottle I try to keep an open mind, but these fugazi fruit beers just taste terrible to me...aroma is of course sticky blueberry, coffee and a bit of chocolate, soapy...flavour is as you would imagine like a mediocre stout with blueberry syrup pumped in..I know that every batch is supposedly made with 30 lbs of real blueberries, but it still tastes phoney, which in my opinion is an even worse result than the totally horrible fruit beers ie. wild blue that do not even try to claim that real fruit is used....extreme brewing is dangerous in the wrong hands....

Headbanger (3992) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 12oz bottle (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a dark brown with a nice head that diminishes into a small covering. Aroma of blueberries, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste initially of blueberries and more blueberries with some malt and slight chocolate. I have to agree with a previous review that this should be a fruit beer instead of a stout. This medium body has no qualities of a stout except for the color.

Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of blueberries, chocolate, and some roast. Tastes of blueberries, chocolate, light roast, and a touch of caramel. Medium sweet with a light tart finish.

Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is blueberry syrup, light roastiness, chocolate, fresh blueberries. Taste is an odd blueberry taste, roasty, chocolate,

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark brown/black with a one finger brown head. Aroma of blueberries and not much else. Flavor was fake blueberry cereal (Think Boo-Berries). Not a horrible beer, but not something that I would buy again.

Blah. Awful beer...not that I was expecting anything great. Aroma was stunning. Strong blueberry with nothing else. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with no head. Taste was very thin and weak. Strong blueberry and grain, with a bitter drying aftertaste. Tastes like cereal. Almost no carbonation. I would call this a fruit beer instead of a stout. Has no stout like qualities.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Tasting at River’s Bend. Pours dark brown with a faint tan head. Smells kind of like blueberry pancakes, which is a good thing. Blueberry is less present in the flavor, more of a balanced mix of chocolate, oats and blueberries. Average palate, interesting beer, not something I would have picked out on my own but not bad.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Overrated, watery, imbalanced, thin, and not enough blueberries. 30 lbs. of blueberries a batch may sound like a lot - but that depends on the size of the bath in regard to the other ingredients. Too much water!

3.3
MrBunn (2807) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a slow-forming and thin tan head. Aromas are heavy of blueberries (although they come through as a little artificial) and not much else is detectable. Flavor is also heavy on the blueberries, to the point where they overpower everything else until the very late aftertaste where there is a bit of a stout-like chocolatiness. This is pretty good if you like blueberries, but not very good if you are looking for a stout.
