Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep, dark reddish brown, with a small light brown head. Aromas of blueberry, some sour fruit juice, and wheat. The flavor is sweet; caramel and toffee, overripe/rotten blueberry, and an alcoholic, bitter fruit skin finish that I find rather astringent. Moderate carbonation and body, and slightly warming. Thereís very little stout quality here; not too impressive.

Bottle - Blueberry and some roast. Clear dark brown maroon thin brown head. Roast malts and light blueberries. Less sweet than the nose.

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.

bth122 (1152) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a black color with a minimal head. Aroma of cocoa, blueberry, smarties candy. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Light sweetness. Slight tartness. Not bad.

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 isnít very complex, itís strong of blueberries, not similar to blueberries, a lot of blueberries. They come off a little astringent. Thereís 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.

degbert (1008) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
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 itís overly carbonated. Average.

Brandon1989 (228) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014
pours a dark brown with a medium sized tan head. the aroma is blueberries and oatmeal surprisingly. the taste is also of oatmeal but the blueberry taste sorta ruins it for me. too artificial.

Fairly dark with a tannish brown head. Fruit flavor takes over, though there is a hint of roasty malt beneath. Sweet, fruity, long finish.

Nothing offensive about it. Nice blueberry nose not much on the palate. Okay, just ordinary.

Bottled: unk Pours a brown beer with a fleeing underfinger of light latte foam. The beer smells of - blueberry and oatmeal. Huh, spot on for the name. Tastes of - oats and peppercorns and some sweet cardboard. Once Iíve tasted it, when I smell it again, itís got a bit of a musty smell to it. Medium bodied with some lighter moderate carb. Meh. Serving type: bottle 01-19-2012

Not bad -- nice appearance, brown, more like a stout, but small head. You can definitely smell the blueberries, but not in an overpowering way like some fruity beers. More difficult to discern the blueberry flavor while drinking it, and thereís a surprisingly bitter aftertaste, with a little bit of tininess.
