look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

22oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass.

A- a very dark brown, little light gets through, with a nice dense tan head. Head does dissipate fairly quickly.

S- some cocoa, blueberry, and candy sugar. Boozy, and overly sweet.

T- a big boozy mess. You would think that chocolate and blueberry would work, but it just doesn't. Overly sweet, with an aggressive bitterness on the back end to try and tame it. Nothing melds together, and nothing works about this beer.

M- Fairly thin for as dark as it is, a bit dry and almost metallic on the back.

O- Had high hopes for this, which were quickly crushed.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A -poured pitch black into chalice with a creamy off white to tan head.

S - pungent smell of blueberry, malt, alcohol, an almost cheese character. Bakers chocolate and roasted malt notes as well.

T - Porter up front, blueberry I'm the back. Nice malt profile with a nutty and roasted character. Notes of oak, reminiscent of a BA beer. Alcohol is present, nice bitterness from hops, finishes a little rough and not as smooth as I expected.

M - thick but not syrupy and finishes a little lighter. Ample carbonation to support this big beer. Alcohol isn't as warming but is certainly brash.

O - overall it is ok, probably one of the best things to come out of shipyard. It is a little harsh and would benefit a lot from a more smooth taste/feel. Good when you want something blueberry that is a porter vs lighter style which is common in these parts.
