UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 A decent stout. The non heavy style hides the higher abv well. Tiny blueberry tastes. Would never have guessed it if it wasn?t on the bottle.

Pours a deep brown with purple hints, slight head which disappears in an instant.....aroma of roasted blueberry.....taste is malt, a bit thin, slightly toasted hint, coffee, a very little blueberry, metallic aftertaste. OK, one is enough.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour, deep black with reddish tones, nice cream head with light lacing. Rich malty aroma with chocolate and blueberry, flavor is roasted bitter with (fake) blueberry syrup. Smooth mouthfeel (oats), quick bitter finish. Decent but not great oatmeal stout -- not nearly as good as my "Blueberry Woods" oatmeal milk stout homebrew recipe!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle purchased and consumed in FL.
For a beer of this style and origin, one might reasonably fear it would have too much blueberry flavor or be too sweet. Neither is the case. Instead we have fairly well balanced ale with a blueberry note that is closer to subtle than to overpowering. Lightly swet up front; mildly bitter in the lasting aftertaste where there’s also a nice showing of natural blueberry flavor.
Medium+ carbonation is a bit high for style but smooth and creamy nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a rather dark brown color with a fairly thick light tan head on there. Nose is dominated by the blueberries, but in a light way, and has just a hint of some roasting underneath. Taste is quite fruity with a lot of blueberry, as well as a bit of roasting coming through. I’d like less fruit, but it’s still decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt and a hint of blueberry.
The taste starts with roasted malt, then some blueberry, chocolate and finishes with lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
The flavor is fine, the texture is too fizzy though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour. Dark brown with a large foamy tan head with good lacing. Coffee and blueberry aroma. Medium creamy body. Coffee flavor with a hint of blueberry. Not a big fan of anything that taste like coffee, so it got a lower rating than from someone who would enjoy the taste.

"blueberry barely evident in the aroma. a little more in the taste, but more of a general sweetness that hints at blueberry. til you burp. the burps are all blueberry. the flavor is chocolatey, with roasted malt and a surprisingly decent amount of hops. body is tad thin but not bad. this is by no means a great beer, but dare i say it...underated? brewed by pyramid in WA for Buffalo Bills in Hayward."

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sliding and sticking at various times throughout the consuming of this beer.
The smell had a roasty sort of light chocolate quality with the blueberry in the background.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. It seemed appropriately carbonated for the style and for me. There’s no aftertaste whatsoever, but it does have a dry finish.
Overall, good beer I could see myself having almost every Spring.
