Just enough carbonation to tickle.

A beautiful deep dark.

Although the initial flavor is too bitter, a twang that makes me smack my lips, the aftertaste is phenomenal. The longer, the more subtle, the sweet lingering undeniable blueberry... yum!

It hits you suddenly. A beer perfect as a dessert.

Shipyard's Smashed Blueberry, blueberry porter/scotch ale. 9% ABV. (Why is the foil glued on?)

A: A little less than half a finger of slightly tan head. Black, with a hint of a purplish berry hue. Golden brown in dimple.

S: Cooked blueberry, as soon as the bottle opens, liked in blueberry pancakes. I'm having trouble placing the secondary aroma, due to the power of the blueberry. Something earthy. There's a sweet makeup-y smell. A hint of smoke, perhaps. Ah. After sipping a bit, the earthy quality is charcoal!

T/MF: Interesting. It starts out dark, but without a distinct flavor. A bit of dark chocolate and char. Medium roast coffee. Blueberry comes as it settles in, and is quite light. Slight licorice before the finish. Finish is a faint blueberry and a light char, and lasts fairly long. The flavor is very light, actually.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
