On tap at Crunchys. Lots of blueberry and coffee in the aroma. Smooth and not overly sweet.

Really nice blueberry compote aroma with strong roasted malts and some star anise too. After the beer has warmed, smoked wood aromas appear, and the star anise becomes stronger. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, charred roasted malts, blueberry, subtle star anise, and hops. It ends with a nice dry finish and a bitter aftertaste. After warming, the charred malts strengthen, with a root beer like flavor too. All another flavors are still present.

A solid stout. Pours a beautiful deep brown-black with a thick brown head. Smells of oatmeal and blueberry. Taste is oatmeal upfront, with some milk stout, and a bit of blueberry in the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Gambrinus. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of beige foam that dissipates quickly. Blueberry nose with a touch of cacao nib. Slightly roasty and sweet milk chocolate on the palate, but not overly so. Cacao nib and faint blueberry skins add a little roast and dryness. Really well-balanced. Diggin it.

Spciale mais trs bien foutue. Le nez sent pas mal le chocolat, un fond caramel et la rondeur du fruit. En bouche, on a une attaque trs torrfie, boise, quasiment fume. Un peu drangeant mais vite coup par une sacre finale hyper fruite et gourmande. La longueur rquilibre bien les deux.

Vigorous pour results in a two finger dark tan head that disappear almost immediately. Slight oily bluish hue at the edge of the glass. Nose is roasty with the blueberry on top. The blueberry is at the forefront of the taste as well, with bitter and chocolate present as well. Its not bad, but I wouldnt go out of my way to try it again.

Black color with a tall milk-chocolate thick creamy-appearing head, receding very slowly. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted coffee, ... IOW, smoked/roasted is the dominant aroma with barely a hint of berries underneath. Thick-ish feel, but not a lot of carbonation; has an almost flat feel. Initial taste is smokey with (as with the aroma) just the faintest hint of berry. Bitter hops appear in the middle and linger into the finish. I have to admit, I was aprehensive about a blueberry stout, but I also have to admit that I am a bit disappointed with how subdued the berry is in both the aroma and the taste. Also, the brewer claims 20 IBU, but there is more bittering than that rating would imply. Overall, a middle of the road stout with not enough berry to validate the name.

Deep opaque black, big tan head. Ripe blueberry, dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee. Some very light toffee and caramel. Quite bitter. Dry. Heavier body, fairly thick mouthfeel. A bit of oil. Long finish. Good.
