(written May 11, 2012)

I love me a dark beer, and I think we can all agree that it’s hard to find a stout or porter with a particular fruit in its name. This beer covered all the main components of a spectacular stout and one up’d it by adding a perfect amount of blueberry to it. Smells of blueberries. Pours completely black. Tastes of chocolate, coffee and blueberries. Has a fairly pleasant mouth feel. Overall this beer was all that I wanted and was expecting... There are countless amounts of fruit wheat beers, but how many fruit stouts do you have? This beer could replace coffee and pie for dessert.

A: Dark brown to black with nothing showing through when held up to light. Thick, creamy, brown head is full at pour and lingers on the top nicely.

S: Malts, chocolate, sweetness. Really heavy malt as expected.

T: Great twist with the blueberry flavor - slight sour at the very front, then quickly to semi sweet dark chocolate flavor laced with blueberry. Nicely balanced and a lot going on.

M: Thick, really thick but nice and hearty.

O: Enjoyable and great spin on an imperial stout.

Beautiful dark stout with foamy brown head. Berry Beers are not typically my favorite but the Blueberry taste is not sugary or overwhelming. Coffee and caramel taste pairs perfectly with the blueberry. There is a strong Chocolate aftertaste but not too bitter. Very nice beer for anytime of the year.

Poured into snifter.

A Pours thick and syrupy. Murky dark purple/black. One finger brown head fades fast.

S Well, blueberry for sure. Caramel, chocolate along with a nutty scent.

T Blueberry. They aren't lying with the name. Second wave of flavor is coffee, raisin, and chocolate. There is tartness that hits after this. The blueberry again. A nice bitter taste in the end.

M Thick, full. A little evanescence. Flows pretty smooth.

O Hey, I don't like false advertising and Dark Horse wasn't lying with the name. Lot's of blueberry in the smell and taste, even a little in the color. It actually works really well. Blueberry, coffee, chocolate: Delicious.
