Jet black in color, tan colored head. Good head retention. Big blueberry aroma. Mildly sweet, balanced by some roast. Thicker bodied.

Dark Horse Tres Blueberry Stout, 7.5% ABV, 20 IBU. Pours medium viscosity and black, with a one finger brown head. Nose is blueberry and coffee, taste is lightly sweet blueberry, with a slight coffee bitter close. Decent mouthfeel, overall very good.

Another great beer courtesy of @superspak. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into stout glass. It pours nearly black, with some cola hues when held to the light, and a full finger of mocha colored head and lacing. It has a nice smell of dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a subtle, but noticeable, blueberry. Excellent taste of burnt coffee, baker's chocolate, and sweet blueberry, with a nice bitterness at the finish. This stout features a pleasant, creamy mouth feel, with low carbonation, and its 7.5% ABV poses no impediment. Overall, this is a really nice stout that is set apart by its blueberry adjunct. I'm a fan of blueberry beers and really enjoyed this one. Dark Horse distros to New York. When is it coming to New Jersey?

The beer looks like a traditional stout, black color and decent tan head.
The smell is more blueberry than stout, very promising.
The taste is decent, I like blueberry but I feel like its almost too much. I guess I'm more of a traditional style stout guy. Blueberry, chocolate coffee, then more blueberry.
The feel is a little thin, but not watery.
Overall not a bad beer. I think I'm good on it, but if you like fruit flavored stouts it would work in a mixed six for sure. Dark horse makes a good beer and I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying any of their beers.

A- light black with an amber colored head that is frothy and bubbly. Minimal lacing on my pint. somewhat opaque.

S- dark blueberry fruit smell. light coffee malt with a roasted complement.

F- blueberry coffee espresso taste to it. one is not dominant over the other and it is a nice mix.

M- creamy and light on the fruit which i like.

O- By no means am i a blueberry fan in my beer but this...this i really like. well done!

Pours black, really nice head, some lacing. Not a lot of nose that I could gather, but not my best sense. Tastes of dark roast coffee, dark chocolate. Burnt something...surprisingly faint blueberry flavor; a good thing. Light carbonation, good mouthfeel; substantial but very drinkable. This is a beer that gets better as you drink.
