4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fooled by the label.Was expecting a day at the races with Darkhorse but actually found myself to be the star of a rodeo.The stout proved to be much more of an untamed,strong,swirling,wild black stallion than a smiling,galopping,harmless little poney.Once let loose,you better hold on tight cause youíre in for quite a ride.Open the gates.Inky-black mane,excessive,over-the-top and overwhelming deeply roasted malt teaming up with turkish coffee and darkberries up in the air.Powerful,mouth-coating earthy ground coffee,thick molasses and a nice underlined blueberry fruitiness all leading to a fairly astringent finish.Thatís it.You lose your balance.youíre down to the ground.Body bruised,face full of dirt.You feel like a boxer after a Mike Tyson punch.F1 racer hitting the wall at full speed.You get back on your feet,limping, yet wanting more of that stuff.But PsychProf,a nice man who drove to the ranch and provided for the ride is 700 miles away from you which is quite a ride again.Thatís too bad.I feel terrible now.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
W aromacie mamy intensywne jagody i sos sojowy. Zapach całkiem przyjemny i zaskakujący.
Piwo jest lekko kwaśne i wytrawne. Smak bardzo złożony, mamy delikatne palone ziarna kawy i gorzką czekoladę, następnie pojawiają się kwaśne jagody i lekka ziołowa goryczka.
Bardzo przyjemny, oryginalny i co najważniejsze naprawdę jagodowy stout.

From a bottle, black with very large staying brown head with very fine bubbles. Nose is roasted malts, blueberry, chocolate. burnt toast.

Long roasted malt finish with tons of great blueberry flavor. Easy to drink body is very nice and great flavors, another great stout from Dark Horse.

Dark Horse beer so far prob.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: near black, creamy tan head. Aroma: strong chocolate roast, hint of blueberry and vanilla. Taste: tastes like nothing so much as a chocolate chip blueberry muffin. Finish: roasty, slightly dry, with a nice bit of blueberry must. Notes: The flavor combo isnít my favorite, but this was extremely well executed. Good palate. Bottle from Total Wine in McLean, VA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Pump House. Very dark with a one finger tan head. Some blueberry and coffee in the aroma. The berry is not tasted as prominently but is there. Coffee, tobacco, and roast. Malts are big. Semi sweet to dry. I like blueberry in a beer and wish it had been bigger. A nice beer.
