Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, opaque, black-ish color with a thin, filmy, brown head that clings around the glass. Aromas of blueberry tart and sweet, with a heavy dose of roasted coffee in the backbone. Flavors are rich and creamy, with a mocha backbone giving rise to a subtle sweet blueberry ribbon of sweetness. The fruit imparts a blueberry muffin character to the brew, and there are roasty highlights throughout. Very robust, on a smooth, full body. Roasty and fruity aftertaste, with a balancing bitterness. Clean, slightly dry finish. Very good.

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.
