12 oz bottle. Opens with a very faint escape of carbonation, almost too little to hear.Dark dark black in color, almost no head to speak of. I was a bit skeptical of this beer, because I thought the blueberries would overwhelm. However, I’m pleasantly surprised. They play a very minimal role in the flavor. Prominent flavors are milk chocolate, roasted malts, and chocolate covered blueberries. Definitely a sweet stout. Full bodied, a bit syrupy. Solid. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Beer from discoun Opaque black with that dark burn head, not unlike dark lord. Intense blueberry, and dark malt. Bitter blueberry, with a slight sweetness, but overall very dry,slight roast and smoke as well. This is overall a pretty great stout, sweet yet dry, very nice. jrob21 (3687) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Caramel colored head. Aroma of light roasted malt. Flavor is where the blueberry really comes through. Back end flavors of cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. You are left with a mice sweetness. This would make a great dessert beer. mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 pours black with brown thin head. Chocolate roast and blueberry aromas. Flavor similar dark chocolate, coffee, and blueberry sweetness. Something in the finish has a medicinal quality, however a very interesting decent stout. abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Thanks inkubus27. I really like this beer. Aroma is full of roast with a slight hint of blueberry. Pours very black with a hint of tan tinged with dark blue/purple. Flavor is very nice, full of roasted coffee, chocolate and a hint of blueberries. Finish is very tart blueberry followed by black licorice.

Bottle. Poured black with a tan head. Liquid breakfast. Aroma of blueberry pancakes and coffee roast. The flavor finds chocolate and coffee backed with hints of blueberry and a light nuts. Medium to full body. Very nice. (Rating from June ’07) blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2008
bottle, black color with an astringent nose, cepacol maybe? flavors of menthol cigarettes, blueberry and liquid smoke riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle probably from pepsican, but maybe from Stine. Thanks to whomever provided this to me! Pours almost black with a diminishing dark brown head. Smells of light blueberry pancakes with brown sugar and roasted malts. Tastes like blueberry pancakes with some nice roasted and burnt malts. Perhaps some brown sugar and chocolate make and appearance too. Has a lingering blueberry flavor that seems to not want to go away. This might be a touch thin and is rather carbonated, but it is nice nonetheless. pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2008
3-30-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to demitriustown and emacgee! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2008
Ink black pour with a thin little milk chocolate colored head. Smell is walnuts, pecans, malt, chocolate, and of course, some blueberry. Although, the smell isn’t too heavy on the blueberry at all. Flavor is sweet malt and has some blueberries in there. However, it is a bit watery and not very complex. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and too thin. Overall, it is drinkable, but it isn’t very complex and has too many bubbles and not enough development in my opinion.
Bottle, thanks Acknud! This is mazing. Very dark pour wtih a smallish brown head. Smell is of blueberries, but upon tasting it the taste is of a delicious stout with a hint of blueberry flavor in the background. Wonderful beer. Well balanced.
