Inky black hue under a thin ring of tan foam. Rich deep inky aroma that’s full of boozy cocoa and a sticky fruity syrup backbone. Rich dark flavor that’s black roasty, sticky, boozy, berry fruity, and inky and dark and chewy and full. Pretty robust and semisweet and berry’d. thorongil2 (3637) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
(bottle) clear, bright, very dark brown colour with a small brown head; thick palate; aroma of dried fruit, intense, balanced flavour, well hidden alcohol, long light bitter finish hopscotch (11495) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Draft... This beer rocks!... Pours tar-black with a small, fleeting, mushroom-colored head. The aroma features leather, fudge and a light note of dark berries. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor features deeply roasted malts, semi-sweet dark mocha and blueberries. Lengthy, roasty, fruity finish. A world-class beer right here! katrinaez (2412) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Nice woody, barrel aged, and dark fruit scent. Boozy, but not overly so. Slightly mossy, some fruits, and I would never had thought blueberry, but fruits. Palette is a bit medium not thick. Bottle. nealblind (2036) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JAN 14, 2017

Hop and Hound, Bothell. Heavy mocha head, heavy syrupy black body. Lovely thick sip, alcohol with a smooth blueberry fruity undertone. Lovely flavor, a unique sweetness. A slight sweet wine element. Heavy and cool. Fruity, kind of sweet Stout. Nice but lacking some depth and richness. Love the blueberry. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a deep dark brown color close to black. Finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipates fairly quick. No lacing.
The aroma starts with a stellar balance between the sweet blueberries to milk chocolate. Smooth. Underscored by a dry roasty coffee bean.
The flavor brings it together nicely. Added vanilla slides in. Deep and robust, the aftertaste is quick portioning off bits of dried cocoa bean to the aftertaste and following through on the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body leaning to the sipping sort of side. Milky/creamy sort of wet quality rounds out the feel really nicely.
Overall, this was an extremely nice imperial stout that I would love to have again. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle. Deep black pour with almost no head. The blue berries are well balanced but overall it can come off as a little cloying. Mark_Eck (1998) - - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts, dark chocolate, and blueberries. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Big bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Nice dark brown body with tan head. Nose is malts, chocolate and floral notes. Taste similar of malts, chocolate and fruits. Nice kick to it. High on the ABV.
