Big bounce-back win for the Bucco's today, so as such, bottle poured into my Pittsburgh Pirates pint glass.
A: Pours a surprisingly dark, motor-oil black, with a moderately thick tan head on top that dissipated relatively quickly but a thin ring is sticking around over the surface of the glass.
S: Wow, lot's of blueberries here. Roasted malts and hints of chocolate intertwine nicely from the background.
T: Taste follows the nose. Chocolate-dipped blueberry-beer. Definitely unique and flavorful. First impression, though, is that the Blueberry is a touch over-exaggerated for my liking.
Thick and creamy, mildly-sweet malted flavors at the start. Blueberry rushes in on a wave, driving a sourness to the back of my tongue with authority. Lots of chocolate malts underneath. There's a lot to like here, I just wish the Blueberry wasn't quite so pronounced.
M: Light, creamy, and luscious, with a nice dry acidic finish.
D/O: An enjoyable, unique, *niche* beer, but the Blueberry is out of balance and makes this not terribly drinkable for me. Fun on an occassion, but not something I'd want by the keg.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours black with a hint of grape and a small dark tan head that settled almost immediately. Zero lacing.
S: A little bit of blueberry and maybe a slight hint of chocolate. I was hoping for more.
T: Mostly some blueberry notes mixed with a little chocolate and roasted malts. Decent flavor but nothing special.
M: Medium body but kind of lightly carbonated considering ABV.
O: Good stout, but I was hoping for bigger nose and stronger flavors.
