Big thanks goes out my brother from another mother, beermeX2 for this one! Served from growler into a Duck-Rabbit nonic. Poured a deep red brown with a minimal off-white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, blueberry, sugar, wheat, blueberry muffins, and butter. The flavor was of sweet malt, blueberry, syrup, wood, earth, wheat, subtle sugar, and subtle bread. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I really liked the fact that this one smelled like blueberry muffins. I haven't had them made fresh since I was a child, so this took me back. Other than that, there really wasn't much else going on to speak of. The flavor was a lit earthy and wheaty than the aroma would let off. Still not bad though. Really glad I got the chance to try this one.

A: Pours a clear but opaque very dark brown with purplish blue notes in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and some deep amber highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy beige head that reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of blueberries and pie crust with lighter notes of chocolate. The aromas of the chocolate really begin to intensify as the beer warms up.
T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy malts which is quickly followed by moderate to strong flavors of blueberries (but not overly sweet nor overly tart/bitter blueberries). There are light to moderate flavors of bittersweet chocolate. Hints of bitterness are present in the finish but fade quickly.
M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: This is definitely one of the better beers I have tried from this brewery and does not have the thin mouthfeel of some of their other offerings. Hides the 8% ABV quite well and has a nice authentic blueberry flavor/aroma. The hints of chocolate were a pleasant surprise.

3.4/5 rDev -6.6%

Purple-brown with an asymmetrical ring of bubbly tan head.
Smells of blueberry pie filling, malt base, medium roast, and a hint of black raspberry.
More bitter and beery than the nose, but not offering much else. The nose was on-point for the label. Complexity is low. It's a blueberry porter with decent roastiness, but lacking fresh fruit flavor.
Body is light to light-medium. Carbonation is medium to medium-plus. I wish it was stickier.
An interesting fruit ale. If the aim was a beer called Blueberry Cobbler, they did well.
