Draft. Blackish beer. Rich dark malt aroma with light tartness and some fruitiness.. Rich malt and light tart flavor with blueberries, caramel, and yeast. Medium-plus bodied. Blueberries and light tartness lingers with caramel and yeast. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
2009 Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Poured dark brown, tart berrys, tanic, citrus rind, little roasted malts. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Draft @ Bistro Barrel Aged Festival. Pours a murky, dark chocolate-brown color; light-tan head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of fresh blueberries, dark fruit skins, and light toasty malts in the aroma; a nice fruit character. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: loads of tart dark fruits (blueberries, blackberries), lightly toasty malts, plenty of chocolate and roast notes alongside a very solid fruit character; tasty beer. Medium finish: dark fruits, lightly tart, and lots of pleasant blueberry notes. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Pours almost black with a two finger thick dark tan head. Nose is vinous and a bit tart with chocolate as well. The flavor is also tart fruit like influences with some chocolate and port. Decent mouthfeel.

On tap at Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Pours dark brown with a massive tan head and a slightly sour roasted malt aroma. There is a lot of chocolate in the flavor complemented by a very noticeable sour fruit taste, the blueberries I presume. A very interesting and tasty combination. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Tap at the Bistro BA fest as KC Blueberry Stout aged 6 years in Port barrels - 9%. Pours dark reddish brown with a large foamy tan head. Strange sour aroma - must be weird blueberries (6 years old). Near medium body with smooth carbonation. Flavor is overaged/perhaps oxidized, but the oak makes up for it. And the berry is actually present. Really smooth, mildly sour, mildly oaky. Pretty good. Truly.
