A- pours a very dark, clear ruby with a thick khaki head. Excellent head retention, sheets of lacing.

S- blueberry jam and chocolate. It's pretty intense. It does smell sweet.

T- chocolate covered blueberries, coffee. Some hop bitterness is present in the finish along with a little alcohol.

M- full bodied, creamy, velvety carbonation. Warming finish.

O- thoroughly enjoyable.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a super and surprisingly dark brownish blue color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer massive of a blueberry smell. The blueberry is rather authentic with it giving a rather nice chocolate covered blueberry (with emphasis on the blueberry) smell when mixed with the lighter roasted, cocoa and coffee notes of the beer.

Taste – The taste begins with a big showing of a roasted malt and cocoa flavor with a rather strong showing of blueberry as well. The taste is drier upfront, but as the flavor advances, more and more blueberry flavor comes to the tongue sweetening up the brew a bit. As the blueberry upfront was of a more authentic flavor, as it intensifies more later in the taste profile, it takes on a more blueberry syrup nature. While the blueberry intensifies so too does the cocoa tastes, leaving a rather thick chocolate covered blueberry flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the chocolate covered blueberry flavors of the brew both were fantastic creating a very dessert like feel.

Overall – Not overly sweet with a good blend of chocolate and blueberry, all while hiding the 9 % abv rather well. This is an interesting one and a good one to try.
