The series of stouts that precede Pt5 are too often overlooked, and this is my favorite of the bunch without a doubt.
It looks the way you might expect it to... body is pitch black and capped off by a healthy dark coffee brown head.
You wouldn't expect a relatively mild fruit like blueberry to establish much a presence in a big stout like this, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Huge gooey blueberry juice makes an appearance as soon as you open the bottle. Rich, fruity, and perfectly at home with the base roasty bits. Smells fantastic.
Great range of flavor. Blueberry, chocolate, cream, licorice... I'd love to see more brewers take a stab at this concept.

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.
