Unassuming brown ale visually.

Nose is actually more buttery and strawberry to me rather than blueberry, although it is present as well.

Flavor-wise, in addition to a sweetening streusel attribute, the blueberry comes forward more, and CCB shows yet again they can nail the profile of a favorite comfort food in beer form right on the head.

Although this is another novel beer with a bit of a thin mouthfeel, I could see this being a crowd favorite with pints multiplying on tables as soon as everyone shares a sample.

Cigar City fully deserves their rep, much like Dogfish Head, they aren't afraid to play around. This inevitably leads to duds. To be clear this is not a dud. However, this beer is too thin to match the flavor. True to the name, the taste is sublime, but to have such a thin beer tasting like such rib-sticking fare does no justice. Cigar City, if you read this, brew an Imperial version!!!
