3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a nearly black color, similar to the Too cream stout. Aggressively poured, this features a four-finger tan colored head. Like its brethren, it seriously looks like an imperial stout.
S: There is some unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley here, but beneath that is a slight hint of blueberry. Not enough to kill the balance by any stretch, but enough to interest the olfactory senses.
T: At first, the typical notes of roast, chocolate, and coffee open things up. But then the finish comes, loaded with blueberry. I feel like the blueberry notes do a good job of not getting in the way of the stout qualities - some sips sees the roast/chocolate win out, others see the blueberry as the dominant flavor. Ultimately, the two elements blend together reasonably well.
M: Compared with One and Too, this seems rather thin. This aids drinkability admirably, however it doesn’t have the decadent feel of the other two.
O: Not a pure stout, but it works well as a stout/fruit beer hybrid. The blueberry does a good job of blending in with the base, never fully overpowering things. I’d gladly drink this one again.
Aroma: a bit overripe raw fruits, chocolate, in a moment I felt fine blueberries.
Taste: some alc., but only at the beginning, stout chocolate notes, blueberry - a bit tart, sour - very fine.
Nice beer. meisterbruh (7) - Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Bottled poured. Dark and oil-like, nice head that dissipated somewhat quickly. Caramelized blueberry pancakes on the nose at first, turned more chocolate like over time. Mouthfeel is a bit weak and not creamy, more like a porter. Taste is proper: light hints of blueberry provide a nice accent to the very roasted malt finish. bookman10 (1297) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2018

On tap at Flying Saucer, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is loaded with fresh blueberries, followed by a base of toasted malt. Flavour reveals lots of fresh blueberries, followed by roasted malt and some earthy character. The blueberry surprisingly works well here. Excellent unique beer. arn8897 (455) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2017 Pours black with a brown head. Aromas of chocolate and blueberries. Taste the same with malt sweetness and dark fruit. Really good stout as always from dark horse.

Nos: ziarno kakaowca, owoce w cieście, coś jak muffinki z jagodami, paloność w stylu prażonego ziarna, trochę żelaza. W smaku gładkie i przyjemnie czekoladowe, jest posmak owocu i prażonego słonecznika, niestety i tu nieco metalicznie. Po ogrzaniu metal zostaje przykryty przez konfiturę jagodową z muśnięciem paloności. Desverger (13692) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2017

, Copenhagen - Black pour with beige head. Sweet and light roasted malty with notes of blueberry, chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, surprisingly light to watery body detracts somewhat, dark blueberry chocolate malty close.
Hefty blueberry stout, not overwhelmed by the fruit but strong enough to make its berry roots known. Enormous stout nose, tons of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee, accented by a subtle blueberry undertone. Pours a dark, dark brown with a slight brown head and little lace. Taste comes off as a berry-tinged dry stout, bitter and deeply roasted but with a formidable blueberry backbone. Unsweetened bakers chocolate and dark fruits make up the front, dark cherries and raisins mixing with the blueberry without ever growing cloy. Bitterness seems a bit heavy for the brew, though, and the texture feels spiky and harsh, a bit cheap for such a quality brewery. Not bad, but not my favorite.
