It pours a pure dark black and gives a small white head. The smell was centered around the chocolate and blueberries, combined very nicely. A bit of coffee and vanilla came out as the beer warmed. Some roasted malts also became slightly present. The taste was more centered around the coffee and roasted malts with the blueberries taking a background. The palate was very creamy with a slight tingle on the roof of my mouth. It had about a medium/heavy sort of feel. Overall, this was a superb beer for me, though I may be biased since I love blueberries so much. I have to admit, I'm not much of a Shipyard fan, but honestly it's a blueberry stout that does well at the end of the day.

Poured a dark brown color with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet blueberries, malts, vanilla and a little chocolate. Taste starts with blueberry muffin then some cocoa and coffee, finishing with dark malts that help balance out this brew. The alcohol in this is very well masked by the flavors and the mouthfeel is light with little carbonation. Reminds me more of a stout than a fruit beer.

look: Pretty dark Ruby. Not opaque but pretty dark. Modest tan head.
smell: Rich sweet blueberries with roasty caramel.
taste: much like the nose though blueberry is much less pronounced. Slight bitterness in the finish.
overall: interesting unique beer and it works.

Much more interesting than any other fruit beer I've tried, this one has some remarkable qualities. Pours dark brown with a tan head that lingers. Was not expecting that. Aroma permeates the room thoroughly. Amazing. On closer inspection the smell of fresh smashed blueberry melds with a firm cocoa presence. The flavor continues this chocolate-covered blueberry thing quite well, and as it warms the tart berry comes out more so. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering chocolate aftertaste.
