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.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a burnt dark brown almost black color with a finger's worth of tan foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Subtle sliding lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of roasted dark chocolate malts to some light milk chocolate. Blueberry sweetness slid in underneath.
The flavor took the prior mentioned aromas sweetly and added a tart element of the blueberry skin. Aftertaste was semi-sweet and grabbed a little bit of the bitter portion of the dark chocolate. Blueberry sweetness was lean.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a clean sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty nice blueberry stout well worthy of coming back to.
