Heavy roasted malt notes in aroma and flavor, but tremendously smooth. Nice blueberry flavor doesn’t take over, and is a nice complement to its light body and fireside roast bitterness. Yummy

12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Shared with Bob F. after work. Pours a thin black color with a small foamy dark tan head.
Aroma of chocolate, light sweet artificial blueberry, and roasted malt.
Taste of sweet blueberry up front, followed by dark roasted malt, and milk chocolate.

What a fantastic beer! Definitely my second favorite in the dark horse stout series only behind plead the 5th. A great stout with a nice blueberry flavor that doesn’t overpower. I drank a year and a half old tres recently, ages well. Reccomend.

Coffee, cocoa, chocolate and blueberries in the aroma. Black with a brown head. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice stout, with nice present blueberries.

Bottled. Vigorous pour, pitch black with a medium tan head that’s quickly diminishing. Aroma is big blueberry aroma, As soon as the cap was off, I could smell it. Mixed in with chocolate in the background. flavor is very chocolatey and malty, with the fruits (blueberry) shining clearly in the middle, and some coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. Very nice mix of the chocolate, blueberry, coffee flavors all coming through at different points. It’s really good, a great a balance. No overpowering disgusting blueberry on the flavor. Also a nice creamy almost oatmeal-like mouthfeel which is nice and creamy. I really dig this a lot. One of my favorite stouts.

Lukter blåbær med en gang, men kaffe og svisker kommer mere fram etterhvert. Fyldig og lite kullsyre. Kort bitter ettersmak med noe alkoholvarme i avslutningen.
