COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is near and dear to our hearts. Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki wanted to make the birthday of his little sister, Liz, a special one. So he did what he does best and brewed a stout using a few of her favorite ingredients: fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla aged in bourbon barrels to round out those beautiful flavors. Liz was floored and we think you will be too.

By the standards of Founders this imperial stout does not provide as much bang for the buck as anticipated. By the standards of the rest of the world it deserves a sample. If you like fruity beers amped up to the next level track down a bottle or draft line whenever it comes around again.

Aroma / Appearance - An oily black base crawls downwards with a thick ominous presence. The heavy cocoa head almost suffocates the scent of chocolate dipped blueberries. While strong elements of truffles and coffee emanate from the core the profile isn’t just one dimensional.

Flavor / Palate - Fresh blueberries, chocolate truffles, and rich malts infuse flavor after the first sip. The textures then continue to build over time until it caps off with a fruity bitter finish. The semisweet touch puts it in a different category than most. I don’t know if I would go out of my way to pick up more. Even so it delivers in a way that only breweries like Founders can do reliably.

Draught. Lots of blueberry flavour, nice mix of sweet and sour notes from it backed by sweet vanilla and chocolate. In aftertaste bourbon shows up with really long lasting taste. Full body, very smooth. Great.

Wow! Tons of complexity! Blue berry up front. Chocolate. Pie! Plus oak and bourbon. Keeps on giving lots of chocolate in the back of the pallet. Hits all areas of your young. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana lekka z wyraźnym lacingiem. W aromacie czekolada, wanilia i jakiś słodki alkohol (aczkolwiek nie jestem pewien jaki). W smaku również czekolada i wanilia

750 ML bottle Black with some ruby highlights. Light tan head with good retention before fading to a thick collar. Leaving spotty lacing. Nose is chocolate, sweet vanilla, bourbon. Blueberries come out after the beer warmed up and the vanilla dropped off some. Nice tartness in the blueberries in the nose. taste is pretty much the same as the nose. Vanilla was more subtle and the blueberries more prominent. Barrel balanced out the rest of the beer. Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Different beer but enjoyable
