Arrives as close to black as is possible. Nice dark tan head drops to a thin ring leaving some lace.
Smell is malty, sweet, blueberries. Balanced well but no jalapeño in the nose.
Taste is perfect. Spice, malt, blueberry, sweet. Phenomenal balance.
Almost full bodied, lighter effervescence as expected. This is a combination that's gard to get right. Just getting the blueberry through is hard enough, putting the roasted jalapeño (chipotle) with it is an extraordinarily difficult thing. Kudos to the crew on this one.

The roasted jalapeno blueberry porter sounds like, huh?, but it is delicious. There is just a hint of blueberry and just enough jalapeno to give it some kick. Delicious!

A bit watery and on the dry side for a porter, but the flavor was very good. The blueberry hit you right away, then the pepper seeped in. It wasn't overly spicy though. Works great with a meal.

As CraftyViki said in her Sept. 2014 review, there's just enough blueberry in this one to make it sweet, and there's plenty of jalapeño, particularly in the aftertaste, to provide plenty of "kick." The flavors mesh well. I think the beer would be awesome if it were richer and had a little more blueberry, but I'm just getting greedy. It's great as is. Recommended.

4 stars, plus a little change. 4.25, at the most.

Completely opaque, head is white instead of tan as with the coffee porters. Excellent blueberry smell, no jalapeno in the odor. Same goes for the taste, tastes like a blueberry donut with some capsacin and no recognizable jalapeno flavor. I would be the first to guess that blueberry would not mix with traditional porter flavor, I was wrong. Had it on tap: medium body, light carbonation. Flavor and ABV favorable to session drinking. Surprised that a porter has more blueberry flavor than most straight-up fruit beers, even Sea Dog.

Edit: a month or so later I bought a four pack of cans, and transferring from can to glass reveals that the carbonation level is pretty spiky and and with a much taller head. If I tasted it blind I would've guessed this was blueberry and chipotle or smoked ancho chili, because there's a definite smoked chili taste. Would not have guessed jalapeno. On returning to this beer it's just as good as the first time I tried it, maybe better.
