Picked up this beer on a random purchase during a trading haul.
Pours a nice black with medium head. About 1 1/2 fingers of coffee brown head. Pours nice enough that the girlfriend was like "What is that Oil".
Smells of lots of... Yep blueberries. I love the smell of this beer it is very different and exceptional.
Taste is not as great though. I was expecting more blueberry. It came out tasting like a weaker version of Plead the 5th.
Mouthfeel is good and sticks good but I feel like I am waiting for the beer to do something new as I think about the palette.
Drinkability is moderate as I can't see a lot of faults with this beer but also no stand out characteristics other then smell.

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.
