Arrives a clear, nearly opaque dark brown with a small tan head. Retention is just OK, leaving a thin ring and no lace.
Smell is light but well balanced with notes of malt, blueberry, graham cracker and nut.
Taste is thankfully stronger though with the same mix: malt, blueberry, nut, graham cracker and maybe a hint of citrus.
Light to medium body, light effervescence. Slightly and unexpectedly warming as its just 5.5%. Quite smooth and drinkable. Good stuff for sure.

On tap at Bx Beer Depot. Served in a taster glass.

Appearance - Deep brown body. No head. Hint of a reddish tinge.

Smell - Blueberry, but it isn't strong. Spices and caramel malt. A bit of a corn aroma.

Taste - More blueberry. Some sweet caramel. Spicy. Dry in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry with a minimal bitterness. Medium low body.

Overall - Not sold on it. Doesn't scream blueberry muffin, but I get the idea.

Serves a nice dark beer. Some foam on the top. Smells a bit like blueberry muffin, and something sweet. Taste is really good, the brown ale is sweet enough to pair perfectly with the blueberry muffin taste. The beer actually tastes like a packaged blueberry muffin. Mouthfeel is light.

I specially enjoy brown ales, so this one for me is a sure repeat.
