Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a brown color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of blueberry, sweet malt, and slight roasted malt. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a roasted malt bitterness. Tastes of roasted malt, blueberry, sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, too bitter, good appearance, and otherwise average.

Pours a deep black with mocha head
Berry on the nose, followed by dark chocolate and coffee
Taste is chocolate, berry, coffee on the back end intermingles with some berry and grape notes
Mouthfeel is medium, lively carbonation for a stout. Finish is drier.
Overall, this is very tasty. Fruited stouts can be hit or miss for me, these flavors taste natural and are well balanced.

Smell of Blueberry more than taste. I can't taste or smell Blueberry. Leah can smell it, but only a hint of Blueberry taste. As a stout, this is very good. As for the Blueberry? Don't get it.

Pours nearly black with a dark caramel-colored head that doesn't really stick around.
Smell is roasted malt, hint of vanilla and smoke. No blueberry to be found even though I allowed it to warm for nearly 30 minutes.
Taste is roasted malts, light caramel, hint of smoke, faint vanilla and an extremely faint hint of blueberry in the back nose.
Body is quite light for a stout, carbonation is light.

Pour is pretty great. Black with a rich brown foamy head. No lacing. Aroma is of blueberry oatmeal. Taste is the downfall for me...medicine-y and artificial blueberry flavor. Feel is smooth and light. Overall.....work out the kinks and this could be memorable. Right now it's just a decent blueberry stout that I wish was better. No complaints though.
