Big thanks to beersndrums for this one!

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.

L – Pitch black color with a 2-finger frothy, creamy, brown head. Viscous with really nice head retention and some great sheets of lacing.

S – Tons of blueberries with hints of chocolate and roasted malt. I could smell the blueberries from across the room, that’s how packed this thing is with them.

T – It starts off sweet with smooth milk chocolate and blueberries. The fruit isn’t as overpowering in the taste, which I think is a very good thing. The amount of blueberry pairs perfectly with the chocolate. At the finish, some nice bitter roasted malt with coffee notes shines through. Very tasty.

F – Medium-full-bodied, decent carbonation, a creamy and velvety smooth mouthfeel, and a mildly bitter and dry finish. Bitter roasted malt lingers for a bit.

O – This stout is delicious. It would be great without the blueberries, but the fruit just serves as a great complement to the sweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Because of that, it’s a nearly perfectly executed fruit beer – the base beer is great but the fruit improves it. On top of all that, it is insanely drinkable. Great beer from Dark Horse. Thanks a ton, Jared!
