12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a nearly black color, similar to the Too cream stout. Aggressively poured, this features a four-finger tan colored head. Like its brethren, it seriously looks like an imperial stout. S: There is some unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley here, but beneath that is a slight hint of blueberry. Not enough to kill the balance by any stretch, but enough to interest the olfactory senses. T: At first, the typical notes of roast, chocolate, and coffee open things up. But then the finish comes, loaded with blueberry. I feel like the blueberry notes do a good job of not getting in the way of the stout qualities - some sips sees the roast/chocolate win out, others see the blueberry as the dominant flavor. Ultimately, the two elements blend together reasonably well. M: Compared with One and Too, this seems rather thin. This aids drinkability admirably, however it doesnt have the decadent feel of the other two. O: Not a pure stout, but it works well as a stout/fruit beer hybrid. The blueberry does a good job of blending in with the base, never fully overpowering things. Id gladly drink this one again.

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.

MNAle (141) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2016
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.

Bottle from Growlers to Go - Richmond. Pours thick and black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is overwhelmingly blueberry along with some coffee and chocolates underneath. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, blueberry, salt. Hmmm... wasnt sure what to expect, but this is good without being sickeningly sweet.

Bottle, 355 ml, from Beergium. Shared with JFK10000 and Josip. Pours dark brown with small brown head. Light roastiness, lots of blueberries, some chocolate. Lively carbonation. Light to moderate sweet and bitter. Not so easy to drink. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Thanks to trade. Nose is very berry forward chocolate. Like fruity pebbles with cocoa. Small khaki head. Taste is very chocolate forward. Light to moderate berry. Light alcohol warming. Overall average to good. Maybe better.

vincentvega72 (505) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2016 Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegebt. Aroma is blauwe bes, beetje espresso, maar ook een beetje muffig. Maar de smaak maakt dit mr dan goed. Eerst proef je letterlijk blauwe bessen cake en dan komt er een heerlijk (koffie)bittertje overheen om dan te eindigen in een mild-zoet/bittere afdronk die lang blijft. TOPstout.
