UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 bottle by way of dragonstout. nice near black pour with a strange orange tinged head. aroma is cooked fresh blueberries, the way dried blueberries taste, chocolate, roasty grains and their ashiness. flavor is definitely dried blueberries (@ $27/pound!) mixed with chocolate, vanilla, high roasted grain and very light sweetness. dry fruity finish with notes of yeast. chocolate and blueberry flavors linger in the aftertaste. medium bodied but it has a insanely soft texture as itís sloshed around. yeasty sludge at the bottom of the glass...cool. it works. well done...7/4/8/4/17/4.0

i canít get the smell of dried blueberries off my mind...9/4/8/4/17/4.2

Thanks tytoanderso. Pours a gorgeous black brew with a one finger creamy chestnut brown head. All of their dark stuff pours beautifully, I canít wait to try more. The aroma is a bit roasty, sweet blueberry background, chocolatey, sweet coffee. The flavor is very very nice, smooth chocolatey blueberry, very nice subdued berry. The blueberry plays a very nice background but it still lets the beer be a stout. Coffee, roast, and a nice waxy hop presence make for one round beer.

a damn fine brew from dark horse to bring me out of my beer rating funk. The beer looked amazing, poured dark brown almost black with fluffy thick dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and blueberries. A lot of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee in the flavor, some toffee, carmel, and blueberry syrup. Very tasty, nicely rounded out flavors. Mellow, fluffy, thick, yet extremely drinkable. love it.

egajdzis (5520) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Poured a near black color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, sweeter blueberry, and vanilla. Taste of sweet cocoa, roast, light smoke, and vanilla. A really nice, sweet blueberry melds nicely with the roast and chocolate.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 12 oz bottle. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, blueberry, and molasses. Average sized brown head that mostly diminished but left no lace. Black hue. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, blueberry, coffee, and wood. Nice finish. Palate is smooth and oily soft. Med/full bodied. A very nice dry stout especially if you like that roasted/burnt malt flavor.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Best smelling beer Iíve had so far. Smells EXACTLY like a blueberry muffin or blueberry pancakes. Nothing too special about the appearance, dark black with maybe tint of blue. Flavor was good, really good, but the aroma got me so jazzed that I expected much more of a blueberry flavor to this one. The blueberry flavor in this one is comparable to the cherry flavor in Bells Cherry Stout, but it certainly adds to the flavor. No bitter aftertase, nice hints of chocolate and malt. The blueberry is there, just not as much as I wanted it to be. Still, a fantastic beer!

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2008
On tap at Hop Devil Grill, NYC. Great roasty blueberry aroma - really works well! Black, big thick tan head, looks great. Taste is just ok - too much blueberry, roast is overwhelmed with fruity bitterness. Otherwise, solid stout that just gets the balance a little wrong. Overall good, could be great.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Smells like an old blueberry pastry. Taste is of fruit, some toffe and a little smoke thrown in. the stuff looks like dark daark blue ink. One of these was enough, but really quite drinkable.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours a very dark brown with a small brown layer of foam. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and blueberries. Flavor is a let down, it seems a little too bitter and leaves a weird roast/chocolate aftertaste.
