Smells great, not very thick or clingy for a stout. There wasnít anything to hold all that delicious blueberry I was smelling, on the tongue. A nice mocha after flavor.

Ernest (7025) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with a strong note of blueberry soda/candy/cereal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This oneís a double-edged sword in the nose...on the one hand, Iím pleased that the blueberry is obvious, but on the other, itís a pretty artificial smelling blueberry smell, like Boo Berry cereal or a blueberry soda. And it is a little overbearing, to be honest. Whereas some other blueberry stouts Iíve tried in the past year barely smelled of it at all, this one is a bit over the top. Fruity-tart in mouth and a bit too lastingly sweet...and again, artificial tasting. Not repulsive or anything, but a rather cartoony rendition.

bottle. Pours black with thin brown head. Aroma is Chocolate Blueberry. Taste is sweet blueberry chocolate with a smoky chocolate blueberry finish. Kind of like a chocolate blueberry muffin. I dig it.

Draught at Brewberry. Blueberry is nicely integrated in this rich chocolatey stout, smooth and creamy mouthfeel and dry finish. My first Dark Horse experience and a well impressive one.

ARH (1045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2015 On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is that of warm, fresh baked, slightly charred blueberry muffins. It pours a dark, opaque brown color with a brown, soft, muffin dough-looking head that has good retention and lace. The taste is a medium high bittersweet. It?s texture is creamy and smooth with a cream-like carbonation, and a full, roasty body with notes of coffee and blueberry muffins. The finsh is smoky with burnt bread crust / baked blueberry tones and an aftertaste that?s mostly clean, with a light smokey / burnt toast and toffee touch.

Bottle. Sensoric. Nice dark berries aroma along with some milk chocolate and coffe notes, also some licorice notes. Some light booze sensations. Taste is sth between semi-dry and semi-sweet. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-dry and creamy. In overall nice stout with touch of dark fruits.

Nice blueberry nose with a mild hint of char. Flavor is light blueberry quickly taken over by a strong char finish.

Pours a nearly black with a light orange-tan head. Smoky blueberry nose. Smooth, wet, and slick. Flavors approximate the nose. Good stuff.
