A full bodied stout made with all malted barley and blueberry. Flavors of chocolate, roast malt and light blueberry make up the palate with lots of fruity blueberry aroma.

Bottle - Pours a dark black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, and malt. I didn’t pick up on the blueberry flavor. Excellent stout. Leaves you with a very satisfying feeling. Another quality Dark Horse product.

Pours deep black with frothy brown head. Aromas of blueberries, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Flavor is the complete opposite with no blueberries and no chocolate. This thing tastes like a thin shitty porter. Very dissapointing from the nose.

Bottle pours black with a small brown head that does not lace. The aroma is strong roasted malt and blueberries. The flavor is sweet with solid malt, roasted like a mild coffee drink, and fruit, most notably blueberries. The palate is quite rich and pleasant. Overall this is great. And kudos to the brewery to making a great tasting beer under 5% ABV.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 12 oz. bottle, no freshness/bottling date, sampled in pint glass. L: The darkest of impenetrable blackish browns with a nice fluffy tan chocolate head that ever so slowly sank into a thin sudsy skim. A light amount of splotchy lace rings the top of the glass. This blueberry stout is off to a good looking start. S: Deep roasted, slight burnt, barley malt aromas, charcoal, coffee, chocolate, nuts and grain with a soft underlining of sweetly tart blueberries. Further whiffs put in blueberry estery alcohol. F&T: Moderate bodied with a silky creaminess, this has a nice velvety drinkability. Deep roasted malt flavors with a little roasted bitterness in the finish. Malty tastes of dark chocolate, cocoa powder, molasses and charred nuts, ending with a good roasted dark coffee bitterness. Mildly tart blueberries in the middle helps to cut some of the roasted malts bark. A quite light citric hop in the finale, along with the mildly tart blueberries, add a touch of sourness to the sugary coffee finish. Another winner in the Dark Horse holiday stout series, inventive and well crafted. One of the better fruit beers I’ve tried, recommended for anyone who loves a good dark stout.

Courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma is of course blueberry. Tastes of bitter blueberry, burnt malt, little bitter cocoa. Palate is a little thin and dry.

Perfectly black body with an orange and brown head. The smell makes me nostalgic as it reminds me of blueberry pancakes my parents made while we were camping. The taste is dominated by coffee and blueberries. There is also a little bit of anise. A nice sweet blueberry finish. An excellent beer and easily the best fruit flavored stout I have tried.

Thanks to Polomagnifico for this bottle!. Dark pour in the center of he glass yielded around a 1 finger head. strong blueberry aroma. Gum, blueberry, roast and some slight smoke. Much better than anticipated!

Strong blueberry aroma and taste. Burnt chocolate, porridge, and cereal make up the malts, with blueberry, bubblegum, and salt water taffy making up the rest of the crew. Favorite of the special stout series.

Bottles courtesy of demitriustown and emacgee. Thanks!!
Pours dark, oily black with a medium sized nice and dark brown head. Smell definitely has some blueberry as well as some rich chocolately, slightly sweet, creamy roastiness. Taste is dark roasty and blueberries as advertised. Very drinkable, and chocolately. Much like dark chocolate covered dried blueberries. Really nice. Slightly sweet, but not overly so. This is a fantastic stout and my favorite Dark Horse beer so far.

12oz. bottle with thanks to tytoanderso for this great bonus! Pours thick and solid black, with a sizable three finger dark brown fluffy head that slowly dissipates, very little lacing. Aroma of blueberry bursts out on the pour, and then subsides to let more roasty malts, chocolate, and coffee come out, but every swirl of the glass brings that pleasant blueberry back on strong. Flavor includes glimpses of dried blueberry, with more roasty chocolate, coffee, and a slight drying bitterness. Another good one from DH; thanks again Tyler!
