    On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Aroma of blueberries, chocolate, vanilla, mild coffee and moderately roasted malts. Pleasant flavour of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and blueberries, a slight fruity acidity, dry finish with moderate hops. Very enjoyable.

    Midnight with the darkest brown cap I've ever seen. This cap transforms into a layer of foam dense and persistent, with the appearance of pond scum. The beer smells like smoked blueberries, tart and sweet, with traces of licorice and spice. The big char flavor is terrific, somehow bold without being extreme, and the blueberry recedes. There is an odd hint of blue cheese in here that is not unpleasant. The heavy texture is crazy smooth and velvety.

    Near black pour, tan head, ample lacing. Fresh blueberry aroma, roasted malts, some slight cocoa and light earthy hops, still not overly sweet, more of a blueberry flavor with roasted malts. Nice change of pace.

    A very thin stout that let's the fruit take over. Smells like a blueberry muffin, very sweet. Taste is more blueberry, but not over sweet, nice dark chocolate notes to support the fruit. Not bad, just above average for me.

    This one is bizarre in the the greatest thing about it is that its aroma is perfectly blueberry, enticingly bluebeery. You could hold ur nose over this glass, close your eyes and see urself in front of a wild blueberry field. Unfortunately, the chocolate/blueberry flavor is off and a bit strange. It doesn't combine and the blueberry makes the chocolate taste a little charcoally and the chocolate make the blueberry a little perfumey. It also stil retains the sour of the blueberry.

    A battle between fruity sweetness and roasted bitterness. Blueberries abound in this stout providing for a very straightforward fruit presence. Mild chocolate and coffee clash with the sweetness in a fairly pleasant manner. Heavy pour with a thick head and ample lacing. Medium bodied and awkward at times.

    4.5%? seriously? probably the best use of blueberry (a fruit i generally don't prefer in beer, though i like blueberries) in a brew that i've ever tried. huge blueberry aroma, not in the least fake, like it usually turns out. pretty thick for a low abv beer. the flavor is more stout than the aroma, which was 50 50 at best. nice roasted malt, chocolate, berries, with a slight lingering tart berry finish mixed in with roasty goodness. surprisingly well done.

    thursday noon 2009 the 2/19.. day off after inventory, time for a treat .. pours a dark brown black, with a pretty head, medium built.. awesome smell, hints of blueberry and other treats .. taste lives up to the wonderful aroma .. blueberry can work so well in beers if done right, this falls in to the the nail and the hammer hitting section, right on! .. i would use a magic lamp wish to try this on draft ..

    I had this on tap at Galway Tribes in Frankfort, IL. Pours dark brown with a two finger tan head with long lasting lacing. Smell of coffee, chocolate and blueberry. The coffee and chocolate dominate the taste with a very subdued blueberry flavor bring up the rear, infusing a semi-sweet fruity fullness, which provides a nice balance. A pleasant surprise, since my last experience with a blueberry stout was a disaster. Considering the ABV is on the low end, this would make a nice session beer. Recommended. Dark Horse is a brewery to keep an eye on. They have upped the ante in the last year or so. Update: This beer now clocks in at 7.5% abv.

    This wasn't too bad. I am still not much of a dark beer guy, but I am opening myself up to sweet stouts. This one poured a nice black color with a firm dark brown head. It had a roasted malt and blueberry aroma. The flavor resembled in many ways coffee, but I didnt really taste the blueberry in it. Not too bad overall though.
