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 into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before descending to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a small patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.
S- Roasty, chocolaty aroma with a solid blueberry presence. Also some caramel.
T- The dark roast is the main player in the flavor with the blueberry complementing nicely and bringing a good sweetness to the table. Alcohol is very well hidden creating a smooth drink that has me coming back for more and more sips.
M- Semi-creamy and viscous with medium-low carbonation and a full body.
O- Though I like Shipyard's Smashed Blueberry just a tad better, this is a very well done blueberry stout with balanced flavors, a soft mouthfeel and enticing aroma.

Poured from a bottle into a 12 oz snifter. This is the second time I've had this, I wasn't a fan of the first but something about the subtle REAL blueberry flavor has me at epiphany.
A: Dark black with two fingers of frothy dark brown head that dissipates quickly.
S: Blueberry, not juice but real fruit. Roasted malt - chocolate/coffee.
T: Blueberry on the front end, fading into a melody of rich toasted malt. The blueberry flavor is much more subtle than the smell. Its a little different than the native fruit, as if slightly dessicated - imagine a blueberry raisin, as if they were left in the sun after being picked.
M: Moderate, smooth, creamy. I think the addition of the fruit may have watered down the recipe minimally.
O: Always try a beer twice. I was unhappy with the amount of blueberry on my first try - I guess I was expecting a fruit beer. This is a stout with a blueberry aroma and maybe some flavor in that first sip of head. I will be picking up another 4 pk if I see one still on the shelves.

On draft at Global Brew. Huge aroma of blueberry muffins, jet black with minimal head. Surprisingly not as much blueberry when tasted. Flavors of chocolate, roasted malt with subtle blueberry. Not thick or syrupy, rather smooth mouthfeel with a nice finish.
Serving type: on-tap
