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.

Dark brown-opaque with a creamy mocha brown head. Ok retention and no lasting lace. Aroma is dark and roasty with the light sweetness of blueberries. A surprisingly pleasing combination that goes really well together. Taste is chocolately and malty, kind of lactose-esque, with blueberry weaved in throughout. It adds a lot to the smoothness and the suck-down-ability. I'm not trying to drink this fast but I definitely seem to be. Mouthfeel is smooth, slick, soft, and blankety. Stout appropriate. Overall I think this is a nice change of pace. I was a little weary of the blueberry at first but it works really well with this style.

Pours an inky, solid black, brimming with off-white foam. Some lacing is present as well. Taking in the aroma, I could tell that this brew would exceed my expectations. Fruit flavored beers have always been very hit or miss with me. The smells I picked up were those of luscious desserts and bakery treats. Natural blueberry muffin, pie crust, cappuccino, dark roasted malts. The flavor of the blueberry was front and center, but there was an unexpected and pleasant smoked character as well. Slightly bready, it coats the mouth nicely with a moderate chewiness and a crisp finish. Don't hesitate to pick this up, even for those wary of fruit beer.
