Serving: Bottle
Pours a soild black with a mahogany head. the head soon left glass after pouring.

Smell is strongly of toffee and a hint of sweet malt or fruit.

Taste of malted barley and a hint of sweet/tart fruit, a nice compliment to the dryness of the beer. Very drinkable.

This is my first stout that has a fruit added, I like the sweetness the fruit brings. I will have to look for more fruit flavored stouts after finding this one.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Hoping to work my way through all five of these stouts this year. For some reason, I decided to start here, with number three. Go figure. It pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of darkly sienna foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, dark chocolate, dank blueberries, and some molasses thrown in for good measure. The taste brings in more of the same, but the conflict between the dark chocolate/bitter roasted malts and the blueberries is apparent from the get-go. It ends up coming off as too bitter, too pithy (sort of) for me. The body is lightly hefty, with a light moderate carbonation and a nearly chewy feel. Overall, a pretty good beer, but the flavors involved just don't seem to mesh entirely well. I can drink it, just not very easily and without complete enjoyment. Close, though...

Big thanks goes out to my boy aasher for this one! Third in the series and third on the day! Served from bottle into a Stone nonic (right before it was murdered by my friend). Poured pitch black with a half finger light brown head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and blueberries. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, blueberries, and subtle dark chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. Blueberry stout you say? Hmmm, might as well since I have the rest of the series to get through today... Doesn't smell too bad, but you can definitely tell this thing has blueberries in it without a doubt. The flavor is more of the same. Typical American Stout based brew with a touch of blueberry that comes throughout the sip and after swallowing. Still not sure how I personally feel about fruit infused stouts, but this one is at least a good start.
