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 I’ve tasted it, when I smell it again, it’s 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 there’s a surprisingly bitter aftertaste, with a little bit of tininess.

Poured from a bottle. Dark brown color, large off white frothy head. Strong blueberry aroma. Chocolate malt with blueberry body with a metallic finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Ruby red, almost black in the middle with lots of small, white sediment floating around. Thick, creamy khaki head that shows excellent retention. Aroma is light blueberry syrup or concentrate, not overpowering, though, with some reminders of oat, granola, & roasty malt. Taste is sweet malt, roasted & chocolatey up front with notes of blueberry concentrate, granola, nuts, oats, & barley in the finish. Chewy, sticky body. Syrupy, fake blueberry taste, cloying as it gets warmer.

Transferring from BeerAdvocate. Its been a while but I remember it tasting a little off or artificial. Not the best beer but nice innovative idea.

Strange mix of blueberry and stout, it works but a little too strong in the alcohol taste. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

overall this is just bad. pours black with and offwhite moderate head. aromas of chocolate, blueberry and roasted malt. taste is blueberry sweetness with a bitter burnt malt. it does not go well together. finish is just the burnt malt that lingers.

DialSquare (5131) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Dark brown pour with thin off-white head. Aroma is light brown sugar and blueberry. Tastes are has a cola vibe up font, then and astringent grainy oatmeal thing... not so much.
