Solid black color with a cherry coke like head 1/3". Aroma hit the roast, chocolate malt and berry notes, pretty much in same proportion to each other.

Taste was dry, not bitter, not acrid, plenty of roast but still smooth. Mild coffee roast notes, berry above that, not discernably "blueberry" but berry nonetheless.

I dug it. Would bang again.

Sepia with jet black that fades fast. 4
Blueberry with some powdery truffle and date. 3.75
Chocolate, Concord grape, mixed berry, a touch of ash and a clean end. 4
Medium, dry, slight chew. 4

Berry comes out as it warms. But… that’s kinda it. Not a bad stout underneath, and blueberry has facets, but still kinda one note. 3.75

12 oz bottle. Huge aroma of blueberry muffins, jet black with minimal head. Surprisingly not as much blueberry when tasted. Flavors of chocolate, roasted malt with subtle blueberry. Very surprised!

Pours - jet black very thick dense tan head that lasts several minutes great lacing beautiful pour.

Smell - This smells great big blueberry and dark chocolate this thing smells like a chocolate blueberry doughnut.

Taste - Probably one of the best blueberry tastes I have ever tried, good amount of chocolate flavor as well. It also has a nice roasted coffee flavor.

Feel - Medium body very well carbonated coats the mouth

Overall - This is one of the best blueberry beers I have tried and the fact it is a stout amazing beer.
