Coffee, mocha, and citrus. Medium body. I could defiantly go for more coffee. The berry is very start but it finishes real smooth. Not overly sweet. Very drinkable

A: Dark with brown chocolate tones
S: Coffee, mocha, caramel, citrus
T: Coffee and vanilla with a fruity, tart flavor, mildly acidic/metallic at the same time
F: Not very heavy for a stout, odd aftertaste
O: Tasty without being overpowering....mix between a tart lemony flavor and a blueberry/boysenberry aftertaste. Not as strong of a coffee finish as you might expect. Lots of complex flavors going on here but it all jives together nicely. Different yet drinkable.

Hard to say if this is better or worse than Dark Horse's blueberry stout entry. It has a much more impressive aftertaste, as Dark Horse's seemed a bit empty. On the other hand, this one has a weird initial tang to it that is really off putting, and I'm not entirely sold on it. Different, which ends up being on par with its peers.

Dark brown body, tan head that fades entirely, fine carbonation. Nose is sweet blueberries, roasted coffee and acidity, mild chocolate and caramel malts, like chocolate swirl bread. The flavor continues this coffee and blueberry combination with excellent balance between both, which ends up being a delicious pairing. The coffee still has considerable acidity, probably strengthened by the blueberry, but I somehow don't mind. The chocolate malt pops up again late palate. Sweet, not overly so. Body is light-medium, oily, with fine carbonation. It's enjoyable, I wonder what it would be like a bit thicker.
I didn't think this would work, but it ended up being delicious. I actually get more coffee here than the original Uncommon. A rare good fruit-infused stout.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Blueberry AND coffee? Yeah, this sounds like our current phase of brewing "dynamism". Editorializing aside, this stuff pours a bleakly thick vblack-brown topped by a half-finger of relatively short-lived sienna foam. The nose roasted malts, dark roast coffee, and a twinge of blueberry near the edges. So far so as advertised. The taste emphasizes the blueberry far above anything else, and when the thick indigo haze lifts there's a mild bit of chocolate-covered roast and light coffee. The berries take on a slightly tart character, but not too much of one. The body is a hefty medium, with a rather light moderate carbonation and a somewhat rich feel. Overall, not a bad blueberry stout, but I feel the coffee aspect is not only barely present but kind of unnecessary (mostly because it's barely perceptible). I actually wouldn't mind having more of these, really.

Aroma is coffee, dark/roasted malts and mild notes of sweetness and blueberries. The flavor is coffee, blueberries, dark malts and a tart/acidic finish.

Light on the mouthfeel but Good on the nose and well balanced flavors. Nothing is too strong on this. Worth a try if you find it. Somewhat Tres like.
