pours black with a creamy foamy tan head... aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, blueberries... flavor has all of these up front. the blueberry is not too strong but definitely comes through, especially at warmer temperatures and even lasts a little until the chocolatey bitter finish takes over... nice silky body on this beer!

Black with creamy beige foam. Blueberry and chocolate aroma. Creamy roasted and sweet malt texture with strong but not overwhelming blueberry flavor-sort of like a blueberry poptart.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22, capped and foiled. Pours black with a gigantic surging dark tan head that fades quickly, but leaves tons of lace and a bit of a disc of mousse. Looks nice. Big fresh sweet berry nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Dark coffee and bittersweet chocolate dominate the mid palate, plus some milk chocolate sweetness. The finish washes out with nice fruit and some crispness from the hops, as promised on the label. Easily the finest thing Shipyard has done in a while, maybe ever. Might even be worth drinking again.

Aroma- huge blueberries, other berries, astringency, roasted notes
Appearance- dark brown/ black, thin white head, hints of blue?
Taste- blueberries, roasted notes, some chocolate, breadiness
Palate- thinner body, decent mouthfeel
Overall- Not bad at all. Pretty much what I was expecting. Very unique and quite intense.

Dark almost opaque black color, small beige head. Strong tasty aroma of blueberries, some toasted maltyness, maybe chocolate. Medium to full-bodied. Sticky palate. Tasty fresh blueberry flavor, some caramel, toasted maltyness and chocolate. Suprisingly good and balanced beer from Shipyard.

22 oz. from Chuck’s. Tastes exactly as advertised. Playfully sweet with the robustness of a good porter. On top of it all is the distinct aroma of blueberries. Delicious little brew.

I really enjoyed this beer. The aroma was pure blueberries. The mouth feel is sticky, but not too heavy. Taste is outstanding. I will be picking up a few more bottles to enjoy with a summer BBQ or a dessert!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours brown with a soapy khaki head that settles to a wispy film and tight collar. Aroma is strong blueberries and chocolate malt and some subtle tartness. Taste is big mix of chocolate and blueberries with a little tartness and a malty background with slight acidic notes. Palate is medium and sticky with a dry acidic finish. Really enjoyable, but wish it was either more fruity tart or more blueberry porter. I’m to confused which way I want it to go.
