12 oz.

Pours ink black, dark tan head is a quarter inch thick, dissipates to a film and then nothing.

Smells of blueberries and blueberry muffins along with a hint of brown sugar.

Tastes of light cocoa, brown sugar, blueberry muffins, and a bit of oak.

Full viscous body with velvety carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very enjoyable stout that perfectly integrates enjoyable blueberry flavors. An excellent and unique stout that is well worth trying.

A: This poured an opaque black with lots of dark tan head.
S: It smelled like died blueberries and dark chocolate, with some coffee and cream.
T: It tasted like sweet blueberries and bitter dark chocolate, with some roasted coffee and cream. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a very nice blueberry stout. The scent and taste were simple but delicious. The body was weak, but the finish was smooth so it was easy to drink. Very nice brew.

Wow. A dark stout labelled as a blueberry with an actual honest-to-goodness blueberry taste. DH really pulled off a feat with this issue. Tough to combine a good stout taste with a blueberry flavor without one drowning the other but the balance is remarkable here. Drink it if you like a stout or drink it if you like blueberry but if you like both then this is a must-have.
