Fooled by the label.Was expecting a day at the races with Darkhorse but actually found myself to be the star of a rodeo.The stout proved to be much more of an untamed,strong,swirling,wild black stallion than a smiling,galopping,harmless little poney.Once let loose,you better hold on tight cause you’re in for quite a ride.Open the gates.Inky-black mane,excessive,over-the-top and overwhelming deeply roasted malt teaming up with turkish coffee and darkberries up in the air.Powerful,mouth-coating earthy ground coffee,thick molasses and a nice underlined blueberry fruitiness all leading to a fairly astringent finish.That’s it.You lose your balance.you’re down to the ground.Body bruised,face full of dirt.You feel like a boxer after a Mike Tyson punch.F1 racer hitting the wall at full speed.You get back on your feet,limping, yet wanting more of that stuff.But PsychProf,a nice man who drove to the ranch and provided for the ride is 700 miles away from you which is quite a ride again.That’s too bad.I feel terrible now.

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) Pours black with a small, foamy brown head. Aroma of blueberry and dark chocolate. Medium body. Flavor is moderately sweet and bitter; blueberry; woody notes; peat. Warming alcohol noticeable.

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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle - Very smooth and full of fruit. I liked this in particular. Will love to try this one again someday.

Tap at Gambrinus. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of beige foam that dissipates quickly. Blueberry nose with a touch of cacao nib. Slightly roasty and sweet milk chocolate on the palate, but not overly so. Cacao nib and faint blueberry skins add a little roast and dryness. Really well-balanced. Diggin it.

Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 21, 2017
Spéciale mais très bien foutue. Le nez sent pas mal le chocolat, un fond caramel et la rondeur du fruit. En bouche, on a une attaque très torréfiée, boisée, quasiment fumée. Un peu dérangeant mais vite coupé par une sacrée finale hyper fruitée et gourmande. La longueur rééquilibre bien les deux.
