Appearance: It has a very viscous pour as it forms an oily black body with a thick dark brown head that looks very nice but fades out to a thin layer leaving no lacing.

Aroma: I can smell a roasted aroma from about a foot and a half away from the glass. On closer approach I get a roasted coffee-like aroma. There is a berry aroma to the beer after pulling the glass away. I wouldn't be able to identify it as blueberry without reading the label.

Taste: Roasted flavors here; some dark roast coffee and a high cocoa content bakers chcolate. I don't pickup blueberry while actually drinking the beer. My burps taste a bit like blueberries but that's a stretch...

Mouthfeel: It has a nice thick mouthfeel. It is easy to drink.

Overall: A good stout, but I wouldn't call it a blueberry stout. Skip it if you are looking for something that has blueberry flavor. I didn't expect this thing to taste like Kool-aid or anything...but some blueberry flavor would have been nice.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter (353-13 5148-51, so just a bit over a year old)

A: Pitch black with a small mocha head and a miniscule collar. Almost no lacing.
S: Smells deliciously of sweet malts. Touch of fruitiness in there of blueberries.
T: Reminds me of a bad craft soda. Seems like artificial blueberry. I don't know if the blueberry kills the stout, but the base stout doesn't really seem like good itself.
M: Weird strong carbonation that is like a fresh craft soda.
O: Just not good. Really weird.

Pours a very deep opaque black with just a skin of head. Nose is dominated by smoke and roast but the berry is clearly present. Flavor is dry and smokey with a bit of berry sweetness balancing. Palate was exceptionly clean even all these big flavors.
