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.

On-tap 3/18/2017 at Battleship Brewhouse in Fall River, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short brown head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains chocolate, coffee, blueberries, roasted malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty roasted malt character up front followed by flavors of coffee and chocolate. The blueberry flavor is in the background which makes it much more complementary than most blueberry beers. The hops presence is mild but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid stout to drink for a while.

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.

Black color with a tall milk-chocolate thick creamy-appearing head, receding very slowly. Aroma of roasted malts, roasted coffee, ... IOW, smoked/roasted is the dominant aroma with barely a hint of berries underneath. Thick-ish feel, but not a lot of carbonation; has an almost flat feel. Initial taste is smokey with (as with the aroma) just the faintest hint of berry. Bitter hops appear in the middle and linger into the finish. I have to admit, I was aprehensive about a blueberry stout, but I also have to admit that I am a bit disappointed with how subdued the berry is in both the aroma and the taste. Also, the brewer claims 20 IBU, but there is more bittering than that rating would imply. Overall, a middle of the road stout with not enough berry to validate the name.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. coding 21 06 A1 2055, whatever that means.

jet black body, small dk tan head. decent lacing.

smells "stouty" with a decent hit of juicy blueberry.

taste has more of the "feel" of blueberries than the taste. not unpleasant in any way, just not as much fruit as indicated by the nose.

between medium and full in the mouth.

overall, a nice enough drink, just a bit more blueberry would have made my palate happier.

A beautifully dark flavored stout with decent head and minimal lacing, if any. Aroma is full of chocolate, berry and some roast coffee. Taste is awesomely smooth with notes of chocolate, blueberry, malt, coffee and a little touch of hops tp round things out. Nice, creamy smooth finish
