Beer Review - Dark Horse Tres Blueberry Stout.

Dark Horse Brewing Company - Tres Blueberry Stout

Beer Type: American Stout - 7.5% ABV

Appearance: One of a series of special brew stouts all with similar label design. Beer poured a dark black/brown wit a thin tan head. I am sure it is my imagination but I can almost see a dark purple/blue tinge to this beer when held up to the light.      

Smell: Dark malt and ripe blueberries come first. Not too much after that actually. Smells tasty!

First Drink: Initial flavor is a little odd, bitter and sweet followed by some dark chocolate malt flavors.  

Mouthfeel: Quite smooth... silky smooth one might say? The aftertaste is a little bit sticky/tacky.  

Last Drink: More of the tart blueberry flavor comes through as this brew warms up.          

Drinkability: Do you like blueberries? Do you like stouts? If you answered yes to either then you will like this beer.          

Notes: Hooray for local brews featuring local fruits! Looking forward to drinking more of this down the road.          

Verdict: 4.25 out of 5. Not the every day stout of choice but it packs a lot of interesting flavors into one package.
