3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run (Thomasville Rd) - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby red fading to black with a medium thick off-white colored head, light lacing. Faint trace of blueberries in the aroma, a hint of black licorice. Flavor has some underlying chocolate notes, a hint of black coffee, some blueberries in the back end. Mouthfeel is slightly chalky and wet paper bag-like. Somewhat muddled and needs a bit of refinement.

"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."

Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of blueberries, malt and pepper. Light sweetness, soft carbonation, medium body, much better than expected.

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.

This was definitely more of a fruit beer than a stout. Blueberry basically punches you in the face when you smell it. Unfortunately, it covers everything else. It is a good looking beer with a dark chocolate color and tan foamy head. The palate was average weight and creamy like an oatmeal stout. Flavor was again blueberry with a small amount of dark malts and oatmeal. Interesting blend but too one-sided.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best by March 19, 2014.
Appearance: The beer pours a chestnut, in the glass it appears a deep and murky garnet only through lots of light. The head is short and dense with a light tan hue. Nice looking beer.
Aroma: The aroma isn’t very complex, it’s strong of blueberries, not similar to blueberries, a lot of blueberries. They come off a little astringent. There’s a mild chocolate aroma, but blueberry dominates.
Taste: Mild chocolate and blueberry throughout, great blueberry flavor with a very slight roast towards the end. Not bad, but not enough base.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is close to being pretty excellent. The beer needs a bigger base instead of having a huge blueberry flavor. Find that balance and this will be great. Great price and worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Rather light colored for an oatmeal stout; looks like cola to me. Head is tan and lacy. Smells for all the world like Grape Ne-Hi. Flavor is instant coffee and licorice; the blueberry kicks in more on the finish than on the taste itself. Mouthfeel is good, but it’s overly carbonated. Average.
