Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Very dark and deep brown body, not the midnight-est of stouts I've had the pleasure of drinking. A finger of mocha head.

Smells like an imperial stout should, only with a hint of fresh blueberry. I'm partial to the freshness of the blueberry smell here because a candy blueberry would have been too much.

Taste matches the smell. A bitter dark chocolate with hints of fresh blueberry. And a whole lot more blueberry in the aftertaste. Very interesting. Not trying to be too crass here, but I just burped, and it was all blueberry.

It's pretty thin, which I'm not too happy about. If it were a thicker stout, it would be much more enjoyable.

Overall, I was intrigued by the idea of a blueberry stout, and I'm glad I tried it. Probably won't go after it again, though. Sorry, Dark Horse; but Plead the 5th is so much better :)

Pours black, small dark brown head that quickly fades to a thin lace, somewhat sticky.
Chocolate and roasted malts first in the smell, with some blueberries also present, sweet and a tiny bit sour, faint coffee too.
Taste of dark chocolate covered overripe blueberries, with the first dominating the latter. The roasted malts help too, dusty cocoa, and a touch of sourness starts showing up bit by bit. Finishes with roast and some hops that make up a nice mild bitterness, and fortunately a bit of the fruit gets through to the aftertaste.
Smooth body, chewy, not heavy and robust tho, zingy at times.
It's nice that the addition of blueberries is subtle, feels natural and helps the "dark fruit" characteristic of the beer, without messing with the great "stout" notes of this beer.
