This is by far the best oatmeal stout I have had. The blueberry adds a unique contrast that is stimulating to my palate. I seriously would put this beer on my waffles. I can’t understand why others are rating this beer so low. Don’t listen to them if you haven’t had it go out and buy it right away you won’t be dissappointed.

Great beer. Nice blend of flavors. Sweet blueberry up front then nicely tamed by a delicious bitterness and finishes with a smooth chocolate. Really great finish.

Strong, smoky aroma has an overtone of blueberry - no surprise there! It pours a deep sable with a light tan head that leaves about average lacing. Flavor has firm notes of molasses, coffee, blueberry, semi-sweet chocolate and roast malt. Firm-bodied texture has a decent amount of fizz. If you like fruit beers and stouts, keep your eyes peeled for this one.

I’m a huge Blueberry fan in general and this did not disappoint. Bursting with blueberry and oatmeal flavor. Very dark, not overly sweet.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep black with a mocha web of bubbles on top. Aroma is blueberry but its not overwhelming. This tastes like a quality oatmeal stout; mild roast, a touch of chocolate and a pleasant finish of blueberry.

The blueberry aroma on top of hops and malts is delicious. There is a dark clear appearance with a nice foamy head. The berry flavor on top of a clear stout flavor is light and pleasing on the palate.

OK - I don’t understand the hate here. First of all, this is not a Fruit beer. One fruit additive does not a fruit beer make. It is an oatmeal stout. Second of all - as a beer to go with chocolate, you couldn’t choose a better one. Drinking with chocolate, you get the sourness imparted from said blueberries, but also the deep, rich blueberry flavors, without the methane flavor. The Oatmeal is just a base - this is one good OATMEAL STOUT that just happens to have blueberries.

Pours a deep brown, almost black color with a beige head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is just what you would expect--some roasted and coffee flavors and lots of blueberries. As strong as the blueberry smell was, I was a little concerned, but the blueberry flavor in the beer was more subtle. In this case, the sweetness of the blueberry was there, but not overpowering. Just enough to do a nice job of complementing the stout beer. Could use a little more chocolate or coffee malt, but still solid. i’m not usually a fan of fruity beers, but I was very pleasantly surprised by this one.
