A little sweet. The blueberry hits you hard at first but you get used to it and it kinda works. Sweet, thick, and viscous. Finish is a little hot. Bourbon. Chocolate and big malt flavors. Unique.

500 ml. bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of fruit, malt, bourbon, nuts, and chocolate. Taste is blueberries, bourbon, chocolate, almonds, roasted malt, and some coffee. Improves as it warms. Interesting in a good way.

slowrunner77 (13409) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2018
Starts out way better than this year's base stout, but then backtracks a little as drinkability falls off drastically as it warms. Near black pour from the bottle. Blueberry, barrel, almond and beer integrated about as well as could possibly be expected. Blueberries are hard, and this was the right amount. Still, quite sweet and alcoholic as it warms. Still very delicious, but even in a 500 ml format, half is enough.

dinkle50 (1596) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2018
Jet black pour with a very thin head that faded quick. Aroma is a little acidic, loads of blueberry. There is also a praline like quality to the aroma, a little amaretto as well. Mouth is bit lighter than other BCBS varietals out there. Taste is wild at first, but starts to turn a bit medicinal after awhile. Lots of blueberry, finish is bitter, which is nice. Some of that praline or amaretto comes into play as well. Not boozy at all. Finish is dark chocolate.

ineedbeer (2333) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2018
Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Aroma is fairly strong marzipan and blueberries upfront. Lighter chocolate and roast notes with hints of bourbon and oak. Light alcohol spice. Pours black with a medium sized, thick, mocha head that recedes somewhat quickly to the edges where a thin film lingers. No lacing and moderately long to long legs. Flavor is very sweet with a ton of chocolate, dark caramel and sugar. Lighter blueberry and almond notes. Medium bitterness and medium light roast notes. Faint bourbon and oak with some medium light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, the aroma on this is nicer that the flavor where sugar and caramel sweetness dominates. It gets a bit better as it warms and the palate adjusts to the massive amounts of sugar, but this is still a beer that is difficult to drink more than a couple ounces.
