4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First time I have been able to try this beer. Again from Michigan beer trip. Slight bitterness from blueberrys match well with coffee and slightly sweet Chocolatey base. These guys really know how to use fruit in their beers and this beer is a great example of it.

Dark brownish black. Brown head, medium turned soapy with a lasting brown ring. Aroma is intoxicating, is like a coffee and blueberry muffin, roasty. Flavor matches, coffee and a blueberry muffin, roasted malt. Body is lighter side of medium, slightly bitter, roasty finish. I really enjoyed this.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black with a deep tan, dense head that leaves a great amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma has a deep roasted malt nose, light chocolate, strong blueberry aroma, almost a Boo Berry-type nose. Flavor has a great blueberry presence with a solid amount of late roasted bitterness with some mild chocolate flavors to help take the edge off of the blueberry sweetness. The body of the brew is light with a great amount of fine carbonation. Overall a pretty good brew. Sweetness is present and is kept balanced with the malt bill present in this brew.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark pour with a solid, long-lived tan head. The aroma is pretty remarkable - smells like a blueberry pie with hints of chocolate. Much less blueberry in the flavor. Instead, the ratio is flipped and chocolate dominates with hints of blueberry still present. The mouthfeel is a little dry/chalky, but doesn’t detract too much. Nice beer.

2.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma and appearance carry the score. Black/purple pour with mocha head. Smells like blueberry pie. Perfect blueberry pie. Tastes like I am sucking on a piece of chalk. Smells/looks perfect, tastes like crap. I will look at this and smell this all day long. Would prefer a colonoscopy over tastong it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical stout appearance. Near black opaque body with a thick beige head. The aroma brings the blueberries right away. Blueberry, chocolate, roast. Smells very inviting. The flavor offers more roast and chocolate initially, with blueberries coming in mid palate. Quite tasty. Medium bodied with a bit of sweetness, but not nearly as much as I was expecting. Dry finish. I would definitely have this again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle in an American shaker pint. Number three, "tres," of the DH stout lineup. Aroma had no hint of those blueberries. I got a woodsy, soil and smoke aroma. Appearance was pretty weird. It was a dark black and hyperactively foamy. The cap nearly popped off the bottle and then upon pouring it had a soda-like bubble action of rapidly fizzling, dark brown foam on top - not the slow movement foam you usually see on a beer. Taste was comparable to the aroma package: smoke, earth, wood, and dry. Where are those blueberries?! Palate was bubbly at first but it flattens out rapidly. Medium to heavy bodied. It coats your mouth with the smoke and malt resin aspects. Overall, this one fits in with the Dark Horse smoky stout herd. I like how they have five different stouts that each take a slightly different approach, but the differences are subtle enough to make me either do a side by side comparison, or just come to the conclusion that the labels are the biggest difference among the bunch.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a dark black/brown with a small deep tan head. Aroma is heavy on the blueberries, with some roast, chocolate, licorice, and molasses. Taste of roasted malts, licorice, some chocolate, and berries. Not crazy about this one but not horrible.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Earthy roasty coffee, chocolate, and light berry aroma. Black with a moderate dark brown head. Berry, dark roast coffee, and chocolate flavor. Medium full body, lively carbonation. Very roasty, and the blueberry lingers in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with brown head. Smell of sweet and roasty malt. As it warms up a bit you start to smell the blueberrys. Taste of sweet bitter oats, with hint of blue berry as the carbination settles down. A nice stout.
