Number three in the best beer series I’ve ever had. Blueberry is present but not overpowering or too sweet. Also a great chocolate flavor hidden in there. It’s like the blueberry and chocolate are playing peek-a-boo with my tastebuds!

Opened bottle and was surprised as it foamed over out of the bottle, Strange the bottle hasn’t moved in over two weeks, the temperature was at 45 degrees. The bottom of the bottle however, had a lot of sediment in it, much more than I’ve ever seen in any bottle. After that, I poured it and the aroma was beautiful! Strong blueberry, chocolate, malt, roasted malt, coffee and a hint of smoke. Poured pure black with a dark tan with purple very, very large foamy head that slowly receded into a thick, creamy cap. Very impressive lloking. Left nice lacing on pint. Taste was fantastic! Starts out with a slight chocolate flavor followed by beautiful blueberry, then malt, coffee, touch of smoke, touch of slightly burnt roasted malt, followed by more blueberry. Very good! Body is medium, texture slightly thicker than medium and creamy. After the initial foam over, the very large head I expected it to be overly carbonated But, it was average, much to my surprise. The finish is dry, pleasantly robust with slight bitter and short. Very good! I really enjoyed the beer even though it foamed all over me out of the bottle. LOL.... Seriously, it is one very excellent stout. Very complex, very tasty, very smooth, very creamy. A excellent stout! Great job by Dark Horse. If you like ’em black, creamy, sweet with a slight bitter aftertaste this is one you have to try!

Slight blueberry taste, does not overpower the stout, not a fruity beer. Nice, beautiful dark color, dark foam, very light head. Great blueberry scent. They could use some work on the label art. What do they do, get the local patrons of the brew pub to draw a doodle and put it on the bottle? This is a good stout.

En "fusionerad" stout av blåbär, kaffe och mörkchoklad. Väl i glaset så fylls rummet med en doft av djup urskog och blåbär. Smakmässigt så bjuds man först på amerikanska blåbär därefter maltiga mörka choklad toner och sist rostat kaffe. Eftersmaken skiftar/bråkar mellan en behaglig beska och blåbär. En förutsättning för att man skall bli lika lyrisk som jag blev är att man både älskar blåbär och stout. Hur som helst så är jag riktigt imponerad.

Most likely, the highest rating this beer will ever get. This seems like a guilty pleasure. I haven’t had one in a week, but my mouth waters thinking about this beer. Black opaque with a thick head that looks like toasted marshmallow was dropped onto the beer, directly from the stick that was just held over a campfire. Nose hints of fruit and has plenty of roasted espresso and hints of bittersweet chocolate. Blueberry/chocolate muffin, if there is a such thing. Dry roasted malts are first on my tastebuds, but they yield to some chocolates and then to some vinousy fruity tones. Long and malty in the finish, but enough fruit and dry bitterness to make it seem more complex than a "blueberry stout" should be. Long after the first pint was emptied, and even after a "Fore" and an "Oktoberfest", I was getting hints of the blueberry and thick, oily chocolate flavors...

Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, creamy brown head / Big, roast nose / Medium to full body, chewy, with great balance and finish / Flavors of roast coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and tobacco, with subtle blueberry notes / Near perfect, just a textbook example of a dry stout with the deft touch of blueberries adding a little extra interest.

I love me a dark beer, and I think we can all agree that it’s hard to find a stout or porter with a particular fruit in its name. This beer covered all the main components of a spectacular stout and one up’d it by adding a perfect amount of blueberry to it. Smells of blueberries. Pours completely black. Tastes of chocolate, coffee and blueberries. Has a fairly pleasant mouth feel. Overall this beer was all that I wanted and was expecting... There are countless amounts of fruit wheat beers, but how many fruit stouts do you have? Blueberry wheat beer is to this stout as blueberry poptarts is to blueberry pie.
