2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours a black color with almost no head. Aroma of dark fruit, malts, and blueberry. Taste includes a syrupy blueberry notes, caramel, and dark malts. The blueberry taste is a little bit too strong and borderline cloying. Good mouthfeel and palate. It was an interesting beer, but in my mind this didnít mix very well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Deep brown hue with a creamy tan head and very good lace. You can smell the blueberry very easily alongs with notes of charred and chocolate malt and a hint of herbal flowery hop. The taste is indeed fruity and twangy with a bit of cough syrup action. The malt bill is second fiddle here but can be found towards the light smoked finish. What is interesting is the surprising hop bitterness I was not expecting. The mouth feel is lively and sharp, dry and minerally finish. Okay brew but I wish the Blueberry tasted more fresh and less syrupy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has an opaque black body with a fairly abundant tan head. Aroma is a bit odd, as while it is quite fruity, blueberries are not the first thing that comes to mind when I smell it. Rather, this beer is rather floral, perhaps rose or geraniol-like. There is also a pretty considerable hop presence in there somewhere. Flavor is very mild mannered, but definitely backs up my suspicion that this beer has some real floral rather than berry-like notes in it. Still, the fruitiness isnít overpowering, and it seems like it would be an OK, if mild-mannered stout if that fruitiness were not layered atop it. Mouthfeel is dry and smooth. Quite drinkable for a "fruited" beer.
I would weakly recommend this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bright tanks at Pyramid Brewing in Portland, OR--Poured a well-carbonated deep yet clear black-brown-amber body. Two-fingered off-white grayish head. Nose of blueberry flavored artificial sweetener, sweet malts, and metallic hops. Mesh of flavors and esters was a bit overwhelming and unbalanced. Interesting enough, but Iíd hoped for so much more. Than again, the Buffalo Bills brews never excited me much.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: Dark, dark brown with a tan head and spotty lacing. Blueberry is slightly evident in the aroma and more in the taste with a bit of a tang. Not as smooth as the Johnny X stout, but nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at gabf. wow! who knew blueberries belonged in a stout? I hope the fact that they were handing out magnets with the blueberry stout logo means this beer is going to go into bigger production. The beer has a smooth palate, with good stout flavor, with a lacing of blueberry aroma and flavor. I donít know how they were able to pull the blueberry flavor through the stout, but this is a feat of creativity and vision.

Had this one draft as a taster. Tastes like bluberry pancakes with syrup, roasted malts, and coffee poured over them. I love blueberries, and I love stout, but this one was a little too blueberry, more stout, less blueberry would make this better. Itís a thin dark watery stout.
