Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is all things blueberry. Some roasted malts are in there if you can get by the blueberry. Flavor is again big blueberry with a little coffee from the malt. This beer really socks it to you with the blueberry but on the flip side the strong blueberry takes away everything else the beer offers. This beer is a full on blueberry assault.

This beer is just fine until you taste it. It has nice aroma and looks great but the taste is disappointed me.

Cloudy ark brown pour, small beige head. Upfront sweet candied aroma of blueberries, and welchs grape juice, and sweet roasty mals. Good mouthfeel and carb. Velvety soft blueberry finish wrapped in a chewy roasted malt blanket. Yes it’s a fruit beer, but to me its a lueberry porter.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. This smells so much like blueberries. Black with a tan head. It tasyes like blueberry coffee. Some nuttinesscomes out late. Just a hint of hops add bitterness and only a bit to the flavor.

Bottle. The pour was a thick pitch black with a huge (3-4 finger) light/medium brown creamy head that lasted throughout and produced some seriously excellent sheeting of lacing which totally engulfed the glass.
The aroma was a tad sweet and had a strong blueberry presence along with some roasted chocolate malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate and roasted coffee.
The taste was extremely malty and a bit sweet with the blueberry presence right up front and then progressed into a mild bitter taste with notes of coffee and chocolate (which fought for dominance with the blueberry) before having a mildly sweet finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow with a nice bitter sweet blueberry chocolate taste, which lead up to a slight alcohol warming sensation at the end.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall a brew which has a mild battle of flavors fighting on the taste buds, eventually neither wins and they wind up blending in a superb fashion creating a fantastic explosion of flavor that leaves you wanting more...

Pours a rather thick, dark brown, with small head. Looks like a rich stout. Aroma is dominated by blueberries. Flavor is a combination of coffee, chocolate, licorice, and blueberry, though not sweet. This is a very appealing combination and a satisfying beer. More stout or porter than a "fruit beer," which might be misleading to some tasters. Very much worth trying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours dark brown with auburn highlights; the head is foamy and beige. The aroma has notes of: liquorice, blueberries, bitter cocoa, and rum. The taste is medium sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: blueberries, toffee, espresso, lemon-zest, and roasted cacao (finish). The palate is medium bodied, a little watery, with a long fruity finish. Overall, it was pleasant, though the body could have been thicker, especially since it is more of a dessert beer.

Intense big blueberry aroma. Impressive combination of blueberry and chocolate on the palate. Some strawberry too. Kind of like a roses candy. Like it.
