12 oz bottle, no date

pours jet black, but no head at all. aroma is definitely bold blueberry, with a touch of maple. similar flavors, with some chocolately malt flavor. fairly sweet but not cloyingly so. medium bodied, slick feel.

Was looking for a different kind of stout to help bring in the new year.

Bought a six pack at a lees liquor in Las Vegas Nevada on 12.31.18.

I drank it directly from the bottle. Smells like they tapped some maple syrup out of a tree in Vermont. Nice!

Taste is maple hint of blueberries dark stout as my kitchen sink is stained with brown color after dumping the last quarter of the beer.

I would drink again, have 5 left from thr six pack which cost $9.99

Blueberry Maple Stout | Saugatuck Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this sports a three finger thick tan head solid lacing, and a black body.

Not smelling much berry; more of the roasted malts with a tad bit of maple.

Ok, the berry is certainly here now, with the other elements blending damn good! This truly resembles blueberry pancakes with maple syrup.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Blueberry Maple Stout | Saugatuck Brewing Company gets a rating of an overall 4.5

Pours a pitch black coloration with a thin, fizzy head. Smell does have a lovely blueberry aroma to it, with hints of sweet maple syrup and coffee as well. On the tongue, that lovely blueberry/maple aroma takes on a slightly artificial cola note, unfortunately. Lighter notes of coffee and chocolate as well. Finishes with a light bitterness and blueberries lingering in the aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. I'm a little torn about this. The aroma is quite lovely, but on the tongue it turns a little artificial. Still enjoyable enough, even though the mouthfeel/body is quite thin as well. Nice, not great.

Small head for a non-imperial Stout. Blueberry and Maple on the nose, as you’d expect, though not much malt coming through. Aroma was the best part. The taste was seriously lacking. Blueberry thins out a stout and this one was so thin it might as well have been water. The first disappointing beer I’ve had from Saugatuck.

Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A black beer with ruby on the edges holds up a khaki head that recedes to a thin, even film with no lacing. The aroma is a nice blend of sweet blueberries, faint maple syrup, and a doughy, pancake note. The taste is equally well-balanced and impressive with blueberries and maple syrup intertwining over a rather sweet, sucrose sugar base. There is a slight tanginess in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit harsh, it’s a little thin.

Overall, very flavorful and as advertised.

Robust, sweet, savory and cram packed with extract flavors, the Saugatuck Brewing Company has never been shy about their infusion of beer with additional flavors, be them natural or unnatural to the beer world.

Inky black and ominously soft and still, Blueberry Maple Stout carries a short lived, mocha froth into a sultry sweet scent of blueberry pancake, chocolate and coffee. Caramel, toffee and molasses sweetness coats the early palate with lavish maltiness that's remiss of malted milk candies and cappuccino.

As the sweetness settles onto the middle palate, its steadfast sweetness saturates the tastebuds to full fatigue. Latte coffee drinks, bittersweet chocolate, candied pecan and a deep, savory caramelization precedes the flavors of blueberry that quickly apply an overcast to the session. A followup of maple is accompanied by vanilla and sweet cream for a confident dessert-like late palate.

Full and creamy throughout, the beer's dessert-like sensations follow through a finish of complete saturation as if the taste of blueberry pancakes piled onto a chocolate brownie, smothered in sweet cream and stout. Its a lavish and succulent taste that's good for a few sips, but palate fatigue comes quickly, much like why we never want the entire death-by-chocolate cake.
