Opaque black with a thin, crema-colored head. Pouring yields the aroma of fresh blueberries, for sure. Second inspectoin yields more blueberries, caramel, nicely roasted malt, light coffee, molasses, cocoa and a hint of woody spice. The body is big and smooth; it’s been a while since I’ve had a stout and this feels good going down. The first sip shows loads of roasted malt character. Nice roasted/burnt bitterness to balance the sweet malt and the subtle blueberry fruit. The cocoa, malt, coffee and caramel are really nice and compliment the fruit well. I’ve been leary of this for some time, wondering what blueberry and stout tasted like togther, but this was really nice. The fruit is subtle, but it adds depth and a unique character to maek something special.
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. KraftowyJakup (441) - POLAND - AUG 29, 2017
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 (12941) - 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.

Bottle (bb 2015?) shared at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours dark with almost no head. Still lots of blueberries in the aroma, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, soft mouthfeel and carbonation. Chocolate aftertaste. Nice. Msdrbeat (785) - East Lansing, USA - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Crunchy’s. Lots of blueberry and coffee in the aroma. Smooth and not overly sweet. Dorkenstein (564) - - FEB 11, 2017
Really nice blueberry compote aroma with strong roasted malts and some star anise too. After the beer has warmed, smoked wood aromas appear, and the star anise becomes stronger. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, charred roasted malts, blueberry, subtle star anise, and hops. It ends with a nice dry finish and a bitter aftertaste. After warming, the charred malts strengthen, with a root beer like flavor too. All another flavors are still present. monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2017
A solid stout. Pours a beautiful deep brown-black with a thick brown head. Smells of oatmeal and blueberry. Taste is oatmeal upfront, with some milk stout, and a bit of blueberry in the finish. Had in the bottle.
