Pugsley you dog! This stuff is great.

A - Very deep blue/purple that is pretty much black. Amazing head that doesnt ever seem to leave. The lacing follows all the way through this one.

S - Best smelling beer I've ever come across. Not because I love the smell of blueberrys, but more because I think its crazy how I can smell this distinct flavor from 5 feet away from just one 9 oz glass.

T - Perfectly balanced between blueberry, dark malts, chocolate, and coffee. Its like a chocolate covered blueberry with 9%ABV. Those few flavors really balance the sweetness and bitters/malts to create a perfect beer that pairs wonderful with some of your favorite spring and fall foods. If you stumble upon it then try it! The reviews are really on point for this one. Great beer.

M - Great lacing, heavy body, wonderful taste. Even throughout start to finish.

O - Good work Shipyard/Pugsley. You really have a couple of wonderful gems.

I could only find this beer in 2011-2012. It was simply amazing how well the blueberry coffee flavor came through. Strong content always helps of course. Hard to find a great fruit beer out there in general. Few I have had rival the balance reflected in this beer.

Is it still available anywhere?

Pours out with what looks like REALLY dark with a small beige head that dissipated quickly. Right Mouthfeel is between light and a little more than light, The mouthfeel is certainly not anything thick. Overall I love fruit beers and have never had a Blueberry one so this seems pretty OK. Definitely not something to get crazy over but what the heck.
