On tap at Bx Beer Depot. Served in a taster glass.

Appearance - Deep brown body. No head. Hint of a reddish tinge.

Smell - Blueberry, but it isn't strong. Spices and caramel malt. A bit of a corn aroma.

Taste - More blueberry. Some sweet caramel. Spicy. Dry in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry with a minimal bitterness. Medium low body.

Overall - Not sold on it. Doesn't scream blueberry muffin, but I get the idea.

This poured out as a chalky looking brown color, there was a nice nice white head on top that doesn't leave much behind on the glass. The smell of the beer was packed with the aroma of fresh blueberry with some cinnamon. There wasn't too much else on the nose. The taste of the beer gives off a tart fresh blueberry flavor with a big amount of cinnamon in there too. The mouthfeel is drinkable and finishes dry. Overall I wasn't as impressed with this beer as I was expecting to be. I found that the amount of spice in this beer was way too high. All in all I was happy to try it but left disappointed.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at Churchkey Savor week. Dark caramel in color with a thin white head.

The aroma smells pretty much exactly like a blueberry muffin. It's a little buttery and sugary with lots of blueberry flavor to it.

The blueberry dominates in the taste. I get a little of the muffin qualities to it, but not as much as I got in the aroma. The blueberry doesn't seem very artificial though, which I appreciate.

The mouthfeel is thin and a little watery, carbonation is low. Overall, I thought it was a good but not great beer. I really liked the muffin qualities in the aroma, but the blueberry seemed to overshadow them in the taste. It was a very interesting and cool beer to try though.

Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012.

Pours dark chocolate brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger yellowish beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Another great smelling beer from Cigar City. These guys really nail the aroma on these dessert beers. It has the usual character of maduro with lots of roast and sweet malt notes but there's also some spice and a bready pastry presence. It really smells like a muffin with some blueberry sweetness that smells more organic than artificial.

I love maduro so I was excited to see how the blueberry muffin characteristics would change the beer. It smells great but unfortunately, the flavor doesn't live up to the promise of the nose. The maduro elements are most prominent with a nice balance of sweet and roasted malt but the muffin/pastry character that was so interesting in the nose is barely noticeable. There is however some slight spice and a decent amount of blueberry flavor in the finish that provides some subtle sweetness. Another interesting experiment that I'm glad to have tried but isn't as successful as some of the other maduro treatments.
