look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Caveat lector: The can opener set off a bottle rocket. I didn't knock or warm the bottle as far as I can tell, but the beer is not skunked or anything.

Appearance: Fine, I guess. In a juice glass, filled in two ounce increments, the beer is nearly opaque brown with a soda-like head (bubbles nearly mm diameter)

Smell: Whole wheat blueberry pie. I've never had such a thing, but it would smell like this beer. A little complexity comes through the berry, but the former is overwhelmed.

Taste: Bold, to say the least. Strong, somewhat artificial, blueberry flavor is held up by a good malty backbone.

Mouthfeel: Not much more viscous than a soda.

Aftertaste: Tens of seconds duration malty flavor with faster fading estery blueberry.

My take: A very good blueberry beer. Similar in quality to Sea Dog's, but less refreshing, longer lasting, and more satisfying. Pretty good for a fruit beer, though the blueberry flavor itself leaves something to be desired.

This past summer, I came upon this tasty little brew at my local package store. Being a lover of blueberry flavored beers and stout, I gave it a shot. I was surprised that the blueberry flavor wasn't sickly sweet, and was well-balanced and didn't have a fake flavor to it. The sweetness from the fruit is balanced out with the toast of the stout. I enjoyed the six pack, and went back to buy more. I found it greatly refreshing on a warm day, and it went very well with burgers. My local didn't have any more, so I ordered it. I was told it was a winter seasonal and that I'd have to wait a few months to get more. I happened to buy the last one leftover from the last batch. When I can find it, it's a mainstay in my fridge.

From the beginning, this beer asserts itself as a stout with its look: colored nearly black with brown hints in the light and a certain thickness to it, the light brown head a firm and frothy finger in height. It's not as assertive as it can be, with just more than moderate lace, but it' straightforward for sure.
There's a nice blueberry right up front in both aroma and flavor. Malts are sturdy and light on the roast, though that aspect is mildly present. the lighter roast lends the focus to the blueberry, though, as well as the creamier sweetness and the lightly earthy oat. Just a hint of baker's chocolate rides in, and a slight hint of creamy smokiness sneaks into the finish. This is a pleasant surprise from a brewery that hasn't wowed me before.
The mouthfeel follows the flavor nicely, smooth all the way as hoped in a mostly full body with some robustness to it. Roast is most noticeable in the feel, actually, leading into a roasty-dry finish. It COULD be a little fuller-bodied and ever so slightly smoother for the style.

I just happen to see this beer on the shelve for the 1st time last Friday after work, so I thought Id try it since I like beer with flavor. It looked good. Well It is good. Good taste smell and 7.5% to boot with no nasty after after taste. Awesome If you like stout beer youll enjoy this brew very much.
