A: Pours a light black if you will with frothy edges after a minute and very sticky lacing and spiderwebs around the edges. Slightly light looking at the edges.

S: Aroma of light roasted coffee, dark roast barley and toasted oats. slight vegetal bitter scent.

T: Very bitter and slightly vegetal tasting. Coffee is there, but nearly that of a light aromatic coffee completely different from say an espresso roast. I had tasted blueberry flavors as well, and after reading the label it confirmed what I had already tasted... blueberry hints from the coffee apparently. Weird. The stout flavors I feel are more similar to an imperial porter than a stout and while the line is blurry, I think this is also a little light on body.

M: Slightly light on body. It is more drinkable because of this but just a little lighter than what I am used to in a RIS mouthfeel. Carbonation levels are good.

O: Overall, its an interesting beer. I would drink it again, and the blueberry flavors are intriguing.
