3.7/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle poured into standard pint.
A- Pours a pitch black with a small head and leaves no real lacing on the side of the glass.
S- The norms are there, big amounts of toasted malt, some coffee and black licorice. The blueberry is quite prominent which is a good sign.
T- The blueberry is much more subdued than in the nose. Toasted malts and some black licorice and a little bit of tobacco. The blueberry is well integrated but I wish it was a little more dominant.
M- A little light for my liking. Medium to lighter bodied which I think has a lot to do with the low abv. There is decent carbonation to it though.
O- Started off well but I was expecting more blueberry. Pretty standard stout but I was surprised how much flavor they packed in for such a small abv.

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.
