Pitch black petroleum in a glass with just a sliver of caramel head.

Smell is overwhelmingly blueberry to the exclusion of everything else, except a hint of roasted barley in the finish.

Taste is more subtle and refined than the aroma. The fruit presence is clear, but not sweet, as if the blueberry is only a ghost that lingers from beginning until long after the beer is finished. Some roasted barley qualities also round out the flavors.

Mouthfeel leaves something to be desired. Medium thickness with perhaps too much carbonation... I wish this beer was thicker and smoother

Overall, a nice sipper for a cold day, that reminds of summer but is thoroughly imbued with the essence of winter

Meh not my type of beer, but that doesn't mean it's not a 10/10 for someone else

A very tasty stout, but don't be intimidated by the addition of blueberry. The fruit adds very mild undertones, not at all overpowering.

The blueberries gives the look a darkish purple, kinda sexy, ha. The smell is not over powering, mild one can say. It is kind of sweet for stout, but not all that bad. It feels light on the tongue, however, it is very easy to swallow. Overall, this is one of those stouts that you can get sexy with your woman with. Not too boozy, yet not too overpowering either. Would I buy it again, yes.

12oz bottle poured into stout glass. Very dark brownand opaque. Half finger of tan head that settles to a ring. Aroma is roasty with clear but not overpowering blueberry. Also, there is dark roast coffee and a little alcohol. Taste is initially roast coffee and dark cocoa bitterness with blueberry and chocolate sweetness. Medium-full body, creamy and a bit oily in texture, low carbonation, lingering berry sweetness on the finish.

Pours forth from the bottle a rich, dark, chestnut color, precipitating nearly an inch of fluffy, mocha foam--excellent presentation. The aroma smells distinctly of roasted malt, peat, and salted caramel. Hints of blueberry tickle the senses just prior to imbibing.

The taste is milder than the aroma would suggest, with roasted malt and a surprisingly appreciable dose of authentic blueberry. It’s not especially complex, which is fine, because it would appear to hit its mark regardless. Shades of peat peek through on the back end once the blueberry has subsided. The mouthfeel is quite prickly and exceedingly dry, probably due to the high carbonation and untempered roastiness. The 7.5% ABV is virtually invisible. The body is a little lighter than I prefer for a stout, but not unheard of.

Overall, this is a solid stout with a twist, for those times when you’re in the mood for something a little different. It didn’t knock my socks off, but I have no real complaints, either.
