Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours pitch black with light head. This is definitely a meaty stout with obvious sediment.
Smells of malt and blueberry are apparent from the beginning. Traces of lactose/milk mix with the blueberry.
Drink starts with some carbonation which gives way to rich toasted and chocolate malts mixed with blueberry. The blueberry flavor is apparent but not overwhelming and gives way to a light lactose sweetness. All flavors sit on the tongue post sip with a light dryness. The interplay of chocolate malt and blueberry is almost reminiscent of one of those chocolate bars that come with fruit incorporated right into them.
An excellent stout though with some weird carbonation and a fair level of sweetness I don't know if I could have this one all night.

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.
