crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Deep dark pour with a solid, long-lived tan head. The aroma is pretty remarkable - smells like a blueberry pie with hints of chocolate. Much less blueberry in the flavor. Instead, the ratio is flipped and chocolate dominates with hints of blueberry still present. The mouthfeel is a little dry/chalky, but doesn’t detract too much. Nice beer.

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.

Blueberry is sweet and adds a slight essence. It’s not a heavy beer and the flavor isn’t overwhelming. Had bottle.

bigtaster (752) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2015
From a bottle, black with very large staying brown head with very fine bubbles. Nose is roasted malts, blueberry, chocolate. burnt toast. Medium to heavy body, soft carbonation, slightly sweet, maybe a hint of earthiness, moderate bitterness in the finish, very creamy, slightly oil. 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.

355 ml. bottle shared by Kraddel @ Rampkrot. ˝ consumed. Thanks. Blackish dark brown, mocha bubbles. Nose is light umami but lots o mocha, sugar & sweet blueberry. More blueberry pulp with brown sugar than the berry on its own. Light bitter roast upfront, touch umami leading to sweet blueberry, brown sugar, lots of mocha, basic chocolate,… Low carb, sweet heavy mocha boby. Drinks really easy. Very nice. Fav. Dark Horse beer so far prob.

JDBaker11058 (1444) - Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2015
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 isn’t my favorite, but this was extremely well executed. Good palate. Bottle from Total Wine in McLean, VA.

Strykzone (5342) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2015
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.
