Black color with a tall milk-chocolate thick creamy-appearing head, receding very slowly. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted coffee, ... IOW, smoked/roasted is the dominant aroma with barely a hint of berries underneath. Thick-ish feel, but not a lot of carbonation; has an almost flat feel. Initial taste is smokey with (as with the aroma) just the faintest hint of berry. Bitter hops appear in the middle and linger into the finish. I have to admit, I was aprehensive about a blueberry stout, but I also have to admit that I am a bit disappointed with how subdued the berry is in both the aroma and the taste. Also, the brewer claims 20 IBU, but there is more bittering than that rating would imply. Overall, a middle of the road stout with not enough berry to validate the name.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. coding 21 06 A1 2055, whatever that means.

jet black body, small dk tan head. decent lacing.

smells "stouty" with a decent hit of juicy blueberry.

taste has more of the "feel" of blueberries than the taste. not unpleasant in any way, just not as much fruit as indicated by the nose.

between medium and full in the mouth.

overall, a nice enough drink, just a bit more blueberry would have made my palate happier.

A beautifully dark flavored stout with decent head and minimal lacing, if any. Aroma is full of chocolate, berry and some roast coffee. Taste is awesomely smooth with notes of chocolate, blueberry, malt, coffee and a little touch of hops tp round things out. Nice, creamy smooth finish

Smells and pours great. Taste is pleasantly mild and good, but nothing overly spectacular here. Would benefit imho by adding vanilla or chocolate notes, and storing in bourbon barrel.

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.
