Poured into my tulip. Received in trade from Kevinpitts. Thanks much Kevin.
A - Deep brown with a quarter inch of clingy tan head that stuck around and left some lacing down the glass.
S - Light bourbon smell with a touch of blueberry. Light aroma period.
T - Blueberry! and lots of it. Bourbon flavor is here as well but you don’t get a lot of it at all. The blueberry mixes well and blunts the bourbon flavor. Nice job. Touches of vanilla, oak, coffee and chocolate.
M – Medium bodied with good carbonation. Slightly astringent on the palate.
O – Another winner from Revolution. I enjoyed the brew a great deal and my wife loved it. It has a almost dessert like quality for me. I don’t taste the alcohol at all and love the blueberry preserve like quality of this brew.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Big khaki head. Thick collar. Good retention.

Smell - Some blueberry comes through. Lots of caramel. Kinda oaky.

Taste - I get a little bit of barrel here. Blueberry is kinda tart. Very strong blueberry. Roasted malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - I don't love the acidity of the blueberries. It's a little strong for me.

Two drafts at the brewery, served in a snifter.
Brownish black in the glass, plenty of delicate lacing around the edges, and a gentle skim across the surface. Dark and opaque.

Smells like blueberries in a big way. Mellow dry roast as well.

Unmistakeable taste of blueberries and dry chocolate. Fruit forward, dry and roasty, no weird tartness from the fruit. Very balanced with some minor barrel tannin, but it seems like a second use barrel possibly, as things are pretty mellow and balanced. Smooth feel, ample fruit and roasty Porter aspects. Overall something I could continue drinking all night.
