This one pours a murky and turbid looking purple color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells like pure and authentic blueberry juice, caramel, chocolate, bready malts, and port.

Like all of the beers in this series, this is ridiculously good. The blueberry is so good here, juicy jammy and and deeply resonant. It's mostly sweet, with basically no tartness. Unlike the cherry or blackberry versions of this, you can taste the eisbock behind it fairly well, as there's some deep gnarly caramel tones, and a bit of boozy breadiness. The whole thing kind of tastes like a very sweet port wine with blueberry syrup. Does that sound bad? It isn't, this is delicious.

This is thick and syrupy, with a lower level of carbonation. It's definitely a slow sipper.

All of these eisbocks are as close as you can get to mead while still being beer. They are some of the most unique beers out there. I love them.

I was able to score a few pours of this at the Great Taste of the Midwest recently and was really impressed with this... The 15.50% is absolutely non existent in this beer... it drinks big but not boozy if that makes sense... The blueberries are done incredibly here... Not overpowering or sweet... yet not at all sour... hard to describe... a masterfully brewed beer... As good as the Raspberry or pretty damn close...

Appearance - The beer poured a murky black color with little to no carbonation.

Smell - Deep sweet malts began the nose, followed by blueberry hints.

Taste - Big sweet malts and alcohol started the taste, followed by the blueberry. The blueberry did not overwhelm. It had a nice fresh presence. The aftertaste was smooth and warming.

Mouthfeel - The thick impression of the malts flows into the aftertaste.

Overall - There is not enough of this style in the world. Even so, it would be hard to top this one.

Big thanks to Andy for sharing this beast.

Touch of fizzy head great, super dark murky brown color.

Nose is phenomenal, epitome of awesome blueberry, then going close brings sweet syrupy bock, candy syrup, toffee, maple syrup, blueberry syrup, blueberry with butter pancakes, juicy berry fruit, blueberry eggo waffles, candy syrupy toasted wheat.

Taste little sweet syrupy candy, with nice blueberry candy, blueberry waffles, candy blueberry and fresh blueberry flesh, mild bitterness, hint of booze warmth, juicy berry and candy toffee syrup. Finish is sticky and sweet, lingering blueberry syrup and mild toffee candy, etc,

Mouth is thicker sweet mild syrupy, decent carb, hint of booze,

Overall great.

Humongous thanks to Andy for sharing this.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a murky tootsie roll brown hue with thin wisps that lead to big big legs.

S - Aromas of blueberry jam galore. Not tart blueberries but sweet fruit. Great blueberry pancake aromas with some butter too. Little tootsie roll chocolate. Really incredible blueberry pancakes, blueberry eggo waffles. Alcohol hidden excellent.

T - Taste is phenomenal blueberry syrup upon blueberry waffles. Sweet sweet blueberries over and over. Light chocolate tootsie rolls. Rather heavy and syrupy on the taste but yea, delicious sticky blueberry syrup and waffles. Wow.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, almost thin, syrupy. That said the alcohol is hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty. Great blueberry syrup notes over the nose and the taste. The base beer is more muddled in this than the raspberry Eisbock.
