12oz bottle into wine glass - jet black with a dark khaki head and burnt brown edges. As the brew warmed up a mix of aromas came out - bready sweet blueberry muffins, dark chocolates, vanilla, a slight oak character and a descent amount of booze. Starts off with the blueberry & milk chocolate, getting the booze and vanilla spice mix at the back with a nice drying dark chocolate aftertaste. Blueberry steals the front & dark chocolate dominates the back - both taste wise and mouthfeel with that drying bitter bite.

Overall, this is a solid stout and a nice sweet compliment to the style. Definitely a dessert beer, perfect about this time of year.

Big thanks to stevef03 for this bottle. I'm finally getting around to doing the Dark Horse One - 5th tonight.

A: Pours a pitch black with a small foamy mocha head around the edges of the beer.

S: Wow. Another incredible smelling beer from Dark Horse. Roasted malt, milk and dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, and a huge amount blueberry. Absolutely fantastic.

T: Starts off with a slight carbonation that makes the initial flavors a bit bitter. But that switches quickly to tons of bittersweet chocolate and blueberry. I can pick up the vanilla in this brew as well. It is delicious. The finishes is pure silky, smooth melted chocolate.

M: Full bodied beer. This beer starts out a bit harsh, but finishes super smooth. All of the flavors envelop the palate and it finishes with a linger that begs for more. Fantastic.

O: Overall I think this beer is wonderful. All of the scents and flavors are spot on. Great work by Dark Horse for perfecting a blueberry stout.

Served in a pint glass.

A- pours a thick, dark black. 2". Dark brown head, thin film sticks to the glass.

S- very interesting. Blueberries are there, along with coffee, maybe a hint of mint.

T- near burnt malts that gives a hint of smoke. Blueberries, coffee, faint hop bitterness.

M- medium body, on the thinner side.

O- good stout. Different flavor profile.

This pours out as a deep black color with a brown colored head on top. The head has a good retention to it and the lacing is a little sticky too. The smell of the beer is not really all that great. It's too acidic I think, it makes the beer smell a little like puke. There is a hint of blueberry on the nose but not enough. The taste of the beer is quite nice, plenty of blueberry flavors with some heavy roasted malts in there too. The mouthfeel was pretty heavy and creamy. Overall it was a good brew but the smell just turns me off a little.
