3.88/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The beer pours amazingly dark, just like the other two to this point. The head on this one comes out fighting. I mean well over an inch, pushing 2. But the bubbles are loose and rush very quickly, pushing the dark liquid up on top of them. Really interesting to see, but if you look away for just a second, the head is gone. The smell, without question, immediately reminds me of blueberry muffins. I mean it's very bready, a bit grainy, filled with overripe, caramelized blueberries. Maybe a day-old blueberry muffin, one that's a little cold. Very good. The smell, if you look for it has a nice roastiness, a bit of dark chocolate, some light coffee smells, some burnt bits. It says it's a blueberry stout, and when you smell it, you can tell. The taste keeps on where the smell ends. There a great burst of ripe blueberry in each taste, but almost no tartness like young blueberries. There's an incredible breadiness, sweet an cakey, but efinitely not too sweet. You get a bit of burnt bread, a tiny bit of chocolate, that's the extent of roastiness. The body on this is nice, not too heavy and full, not like the others, (but I suppose that it's tough when the ABV is so much less), but the carbonation definitely does not have the same burst. as the others. Pretty normal, with a bit of a slickness from the fruit. The drinkability on this is pretty good. I mean, it's not going to hamper further drinking too much, as some flavored beers tend to do, and the ABV isn't too high. But the fruitiness would keep me from coming back to this often.

3.68/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
