Number three in the best beer series Ive ever had. Blueberry is present but not overpowering or too sweet. Also a great chocolate flavor hidden in there. Its like the blueberry and chocolate are playing peek-a-boo with my tastebuds!

Opened bottle and was surprised as it foamed over out of the bottle, Strange the bottle hasnt moved in over two weeks, the temperature was at 45 degrees. The bottom of the bottle however, had a lot of sediment in it, much more than Ive ever seen in any bottle. After that, I poured it and the aroma was beautiful! Strong blueberry, chocolate, malt, roasted malt, coffee and a hint of smoke. Poured pure black with a dark tan with purple very, very large foamy head that slowly receded into a thick, creamy cap. Very impressive lloking. Left nice lacing on pint. Taste was fantastic! Starts out with a slight chocolate flavor followed by beautiful blueberry, then malt, coffee, touch of smoke, touch of slightly burnt roasted malt, followed by more blueberry. Very good! Body is medium, texture slightly thicker than medium and creamy. After the initial foam over, the very large head I expected it to be overly carbonated But, it was average, much to my surprise. The finish is dry, pleasantly robust with slight bitter and short. Very good! I really enjoyed the beer even though it foamed all over me out of the bottle. LOL.... Seriously, it is one very excellent stout. Very complex, very tasty, very smooth, very creamy. A excellent stout! Great job by Dark Horse. If you like em black, creamy, sweet with a slight bitter aftertaste this is one you have to try!

Slight blueberry taste, does not overpower the stout, not a fruity beer. Nice, beautiful dark color, dark foam, very light head. Great blueberry scent. They could use some work on the label art. What do they do, get the local patrons of the brew pub to draw a doodle and put it on the bottle? This is a good stout.

En "fusionerad" stout av blbr, kaffe och mrkchoklad. Vl i glaset s fylls rummet med en doft av djup urskog och blbr. Smakmssigt s bjuds man frst p amerikanska blbr drefter maltiga mrka choklad toner och sist rostat kaffe. Eftersmaken skiftar/brkar mellan en behaglig beska och blbr. En frutsttning fr att man skall bli lika lyrisk som jag blev r att man bde lskar blbr och stout. Hur som helst s r jag riktigt imponerad.

Odeur melant le torrifi intense la myrtille parfume. Le gout est similaire. Lassociation entre le malt brul et la myrtille est trs perspicace. Probablement une des meilleures stout que jai jamais bu.

Most likely, the highest rating this beer will ever get. This seems like a guilty pleasure. I havent had one in a week, but my mouth waters thinking about this beer. Black opaque with a thick head that looks like toasted marshmallow was dropped onto the beer, directly from the stick that was just held over a campfire. Nose hints of fruit and has plenty of roasted espresso and hints of bittersweet chocolate. Blueberry/chocolate muffin, if there is a such thing. Dry roasted malts are first on my tastebuds, but they yield to some chocolates and then to some vinousy fruity tones. Long and malty in the finish, but enough fruit and dry bitterness to make it seem more complex than a "blueberry stout" should be. Long after the first pint was emptied, and even after a "Fore" and an "Oktoberfest", I was getting hints of the blueberry and thick, oily chocolate flavors...

Draft at Jerrys. Black with big, creamy brown head / Big, roast nose / Medium to full body, chewy, with great balance and finish / Flavors of roast coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and tobacco, with subtle blueberry notes / Near perfect, just a textbook example of a dry stout with the deft touch of blueberries adding a little extra interest.
