Inky black and opaque with a low head of oatmeal colored foam that settles out quickly and leaves some soapy bubbles. Aroma of roasted malt and toffee, with noticeable but well-balanced blueberry notes.

Rich flavors of dark malt, cocoa and coffee, laced with blueberry flavors that complement well. Not overdone, not too sweet, just a great balance and subtle yet pleasing complement to the porter flavors. Subtle floral hops ride beneath. Full and rich mouthfeel. This is a great beer that has achieved a perfect balance of flavors. This base porter would likely work well in the same proportion with other complementary flavors - raspberry, chipotle, etc. Well done.

I'm not a good reviewer. In fact I probably suck and should be banned from voicing my opinion. Free speech prevents such action...

This beer reminds me very little of Blueberry anything. I love Wild Blue... The sweet Blueberries are delicious! I've been hoping to find something to top it. This ain't it.

It's good, don't get me wrong... But very few Blueberries were harmed in creating this stuff. Had it been called 'Chocolate covered Blueberries with coffee and porter/stout" at least I'd have known what to expect. I like it, for a pint. After that... I'd ask for a seltzer to cut the heavy flavors left in my mouth. Call it something other than "smashed Blueberry" (unless you were smashed when you named it). Sorry, this is a total fail for a Blueberry concoction.
