Thanks optimator13 for this very interesting stout!
A - I don't know what I was really expecting when I poured this, perhaps amber color like the only previous blueberry beer I had was but damn was I surprised! Pours jet black with a huge fluffy head. Laces the glass beautifully.
S - Did my grandmother just walk in with a tray of blueberry muffins? Nope, that's the nose of this beer. Wow, great blueberry notes, fresh mind you, and a strong roasted caramel scent. A little cake/bready smell as well - I swear this smells just like a blueberry muffin. Smell is a total nostalgia kick to my childhood. This really smells fantastic.
T - More blueberries and cake. Strong malt backbone that complements the blueberry sweetness.
M - Medium mouthfeel, a little silky. Carbonation is right on.
O - I usually opt out to beers infused with fruits that aren't lambics or what have you but this was an exceptional treat. Never would have thought that the malt base would do so well with the blueberries. Really a treat in a glass, I wish I had some muffins to accompany this beer.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours black with a hint of grape and a small dark tan head that settled almost immediately. Zero lacing.
S: A little bit of blueberry and maybe a slight hint of chocolate. I was hoping for more.
T: Mostly some blueberry notes mixed with a little chocolate and roasted malts. Decent flavor but nothing special.
M: Medium body but kind of lightly carbonated considering ABV.
O: Good stout, but I was hoping for bigger nose and stronger flavors.
