Thanks optimator13 for this very interesting stout!

A - I don't know what I was really expecting when I poured this, perhaps amber color like the only previous blueberry beer I had was but damn was I surprised! Pours jet black with a huge fluffy head. Laces the glass beautifully.

S - Did my grandmother just walk in with a tray of blueberry muffins? Nope, that's the nose of this beer. Wow, great blueberry notes, fresh mind you, and a strong roasted caramel scent. A little cake/bready smell as well - I swear this smells just like a blueberry muffin. Smell is a total nostalgia kick to my childhood. This really smells fantastic.

T - More blueberries and cake. Strong malt backbone that complements the blueberry sweetness.

M - Medium mouthfeel, a little silky. Carbonation is right on.

O - I usually opt out to beers infused with fruits that aren't lambics or what have you but this was an exceptional treat. Never would have thought that the malt base would do so well with the blueberries. Really a treat in a glass, I wish I had some muffins to accompany this beer.

Pours a nice 2 finger dark chocolate head. Body is pitch black with no light escaping. Head retention was surprisingly quickly diminished and lacing was above average.

Smells of freshly blended blueberries. Surprised that the blueberries smelled so fresh and not too sweet or artificial. Other aromas are of dark semi sweet chocolate, roasted espresso, and bits of smoked malt. Hops are nowhere to be found and alcohol is hidden well for a stout almost 8%.

Taste is bits of chocolate covered blueberries mixed with a smoked porter. Charred oak and some coffee cut the fruity sweetness. Light bitterness is in the aftertaste and alcohol is barely detected.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied but with a good amount of carbonation. Head died pretty fast, wish it stuck around to cut the carbonation.

Overall this beer was pretty good. Never had a blueberry stout before and I was pleasantly surprised. Extremely drinkable, wish it was available in my region.

A really nice, light tasting, stout. Mild amounts of blueberry flavors. Mild alcohol presence. Medium amount of sweetness. But so well balanced that it just drinks so well. To me, not as full bodied as it claims, but that's ok. It's nice to have a light, fruity stout that goes down smoothly. My second beer (regular Pt5 was the first) from this brewery. And I'm not disappointed so far. Very nice.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a stone snifter.

Looks thin, but has rather low ABV for a stout so that is understandable. Has a good smell - nice roasty notes, with some light chocolate and lots blueberry. Taste has less blueberry than the nose but it still very present and makes for a solid brew. Fairly well balanced but needs a little more body IMO.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Bottle purchased from Nathaniel Square Corner Store.

Pours dark black, opaque, with a 2 inch light mocha colored head, and good lacing down the glass.

Smells include chocolate, roasted malt, and blueberries.

This stout has a wonderful dry roasted malt flavor, with lots of bitter dark chocolate. The blueberries are subtle and not overpowering, providing a little bit of sweetness and very mild tartness. Even without the blueberries, this would be an outstanding stout- the roasted character is perfect. The blueberry flavor and aroma get stronger and sweeter as the beer warms, without ever getting cloying.

Medium to full body, very drinkable, scary drinkable, actually. No alcohol presence.

An amazing stout, Dark Horse continues to impress me.
