Starts off with a huge amount of promise, as the blueberries smell and taste wonderful (at first). It's once the initial sip passes that you're left with a rather hollow flavor. Pleasant but surprisingly unfulfilling.

Huge blueberry aroma. Medium body, very nice and drinkable stout. Blueberries on the nose and in the flavor, I was surprised it carried through. Very enjoyable, just beware the sludge on the bottle bottom.

L: Pours a dark black with a tan white head.

S: Chocolate and blueberry.

T: The blueberry at times did not come through in the taste. Sometimes it was noticeable. Chocolate and cocoa. A little coffee.

F: A little thin, moderate carbonation.

O: A rock solid stout. Some blueberry tartness come through making it quite enjoyable.

The Tres Blueberry Stout is decent....I typically do not like fruity stouts but this one is good. The beer poured an opaque black with tan head that is not leaving a lace. The scent has roast and blueberry. The taste starts roasty and finishes with a blueberry zeal. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a stout worth trying.
