nearbeer (4168) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2015
12 oz. Opaque jet with a thin film of cream. Aroma is chocolate, soy, blueberry and hints of green herb, char and smoke. Tastes of the same great mix plus some dark bread and caramel. Medium-heavy body has a good balance and a fizz that’s more than I usually like, but it remains mostly smooth and seems appropriate for this beer.

King_Alex_II (640) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Pitch black oily color with brown foam ring. Light blueberry notes in the nose. The taste is smooth fruity blueberry notes. Sweet and decent carbonation and a thick oily mouth feeling. Smooth coffee and dark chocolate aftertaste with a fruity note.

Kita (1466) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle, 0.355l. Pours pitch black with thin creamy brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of blueberries, roasted malt, cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt and chocolate, follows by fruity acidity, only mild blueberry flavor, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Très bien...

Bottle from brewdog online. Black with nice tan head. Blueberry Aroma hts immediately and is very inviting, beautiful match with the roasty malty stout. Taste is very well balanced, sweet and bitter with a bit of alcohol hum. Medium full with mild carbonation. Very nice.

ciocanelu (141) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 27, 2015
Very pleasant chocolate and blueberry aroma. The fruit taste is also present in the taste but more subtle, making the malt shine more. Ideal balance between sweet and bitter. The body is pretty light for a stout, making it very easy to drink and the alcohol is very well hidden for the 7.5% ABV.

MayumiH (379) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Pretty well balanced tasty beer indeed.

mateuszk (822) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Pitch black, beige head. In aroma very nice and natural blueberry aroma upfront, then roastiness and chocolate. In taste less blueberry but still present, medium roastiness. Medium body, soft carbonation, very smooth. One more great stout from Dark Horse, this time with fantastic blueberry notes.
