Aggressively* poured into a dimple mug. Beer is pitch black with an inch of cocoa brown head. Blueberry is the most notable scent on the nose, and is not unpleasant but is a little cloying. Dark, dry, toasty and chocolatey with not-subtle blueberry punch, it's not unlike drinking one of those fancy schmancy chocolate-covered blueberries you see in the candy isle, though with a boozy undertone. The flavor is a bit saccharine and artificial though. Smooth and syrupy mouthfeel.

Eh. Not bad but there's nothing here that really makes me want another one. The kind of beer that you only have one of at a time.

Undated 12 oz bottle poured into a Fat Cat pint glass. The bottom of the empty bottle was black due to a layer of sediment.

A: Pours opaque and black with a small, creamy, light brown head that is quite durable. Full coats of lacing are left behind after each tilt of the glass.

Aroma: Dark roasted grains; baked blueberries; blueberry syrup; coffee; dark chocolate.

Taste: Blueberry and dark roasted grains of about equal strength complement each other. This stout has a light and well-chosen sweetness despite dark chocolate and coffee notes. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Feel: Creamy and full body with soft medium-low carbonation.

O: Not quite as delicious as Shipyard's Smashed Blueberry, this flavorful stout does have an ample blueberry component, an appealing aroma, and nicely balanced flavors.
