I had a glass of this beer at the National Home Brewers Conference Pro Brewers Night. I normally would not review such a beer in this situation but seeing that this beer only has 1 review so far, and a bad one at that I needed to write something because I really enjoyed this beer.

This beer is a Milk Stout with Chocolate and Blueberries added, It's a pretty wild concept and the flavors worked well for me. In fact I'm naming this beer one of the most interesting beers available at the Session.

poured from tap at Willoughby Brewing Company in Willoughby, Ohio

A Jet black, no light visible through it. I really like the look of this beer. Minimal if any head though.

S Faint, almost no smell. Distant smell of Blueberries.

T Heavy, dark, some bluebery. There is a sweetness along with the coffee grounds taste. I admit that I am not a fan of milk stouts.

M Heavy, harsh, hard to have in your mouth

D Poor. I did not finish my pint and I usually try to at least finish my pint to give a beer a fair tasting but I could not finish this one. I will not buy this again.

Notes: brewer tried too hard with this one. I did appreciate the look of it (no light whatsoever) but the blueberries and the stout just did not work for me.
