Brewery: Omnipollo x Dugges Bryggeri
Style: Stout – Imperial
Other Notes: Brewed at Dugges Bryggeri in Sweden
Brewer Description: (from website) The 2022 version of our annual blueberry cheesecake inspired Imperial Stouts is a celebration of friendship. Together with Dugges we began the journey in Anagram, made sure the blueberries were really expressive and then added a new flavor component by adding hazelnut coffee. The coffee adds an incredible nuttiness that leads on to memories of blueberry hazelnut pies with freshly toasted hazelnuts and fragrant blueberry jam. Does not contain nuts.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date (as best as I can make it out to be) of 19th January 2024. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a very thin brown head that dissipated quickly, while leaving only some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, black coffee, chocolate, tart, blueberry, wafer, hazelnut.
Taste: Bitter, roasty, chocolate, coffee, blueberry jam, granola, wafer, nutty.
Mouthfeel: Rich, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The coffee was strong and it was quite bitter, whereas the blueberry was mostly hidden in the background. While it wasn’t bad, I preferred the Anagram Blueberry Cheesecake Stout more.
