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.

Pours a jet black color with cocoa colored creamy foam that creates a thick layer lasting on end.

It's an understated blueberry aroma that pairs well with the stout’s pronounced roastiness.

Rather than being a sweet milk stout this is dry and roasty, robust with an understated blueberry note.

Terrifically enjoyable.

...And I'm back.

A - Dark as night with thin wispy caramel head.

S - The fruit comes across on the aroma, with usual stout notes of chocolate and roasted malts.

T - Carbonation is sharp and fruit taste mixes well with hops. Back of the palate is where a lot of the earthy malt and chocolate notes take shape.

M - A bit oily, but still clean on the back end.

A good take on a classic style, might be worth a new look when the season warms up. Think summer bbq at night or bonfire on the beach!

Snifter. As a brewer I understand the complexity of fruit incorporation to any type of beer, let alone the incorporation of blue berries into a stout. Total blueberry and coffee roast, along with a subtle sweetness from a light? lactose addition. Medium body, with a nice chocolaty roast finish. Carbs fill the gap...Nice job guys!! Cheers!
