At 7.5% alcohol, this award-winning brew is a true winter warmer. Blueberry Oatmeal Stout has hints of chocolate, oatmeal and fresh blueberries. A wonderful pairing of flavors! Great for the holidays and for those who enjoy discovering new beers.

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.

12 oz bottle into a Konings Hoeven Chalice.

A - Virtually no head, a super light foam covers just part of the glass. Very inviting super dark brown color.

S - Detect the blueberries, possibly a touch of chocolate.

T - Just like the smell, definitely taste the blueberries. Slightly bitter start, finishes with the taste of blueberries, quite interesting.

M - Not too thin and good amount of super fine carbonation. No large bubbles here.

O - The first blueberry beer I have ever had that I enjoyed. It's an interesting stout, and far from the norm of blueberry beers.

Poured from a 12 oz twist off cap bottle into a KY Bourbon Barrel snifter.

A - A medium pour yields almost no head, but of what there is is fizzy and tan in color. Body is cloudy and black in color with the occasional ruby highlight. Lacing is only slight.

S - Smells of blueberries and dark malts. Alcohol more and more noticeable as it warms.

T - Blueberries aren't quite as pronounced in the taste as they are on the nose. Mostly malty sweetness upfront with a blueberry and chocolaty finish. Not sure if I should put this in taste, but the burps are like I've been eating chocolate chip and blueberry pancakes.

M - Medium bodied and way overcarbonated. This stout suffers because of it.

O - This oatmeal stout has some great and unique flavors, however the overcarbonation made me not enjoy this beer as much as I should have.

12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass

A - dark brown body (looks black, but with a red/orange tint under light) under 2 fingers of medium tan head

S - blueberries and surypy sweetness; buscuity malt profile

T - toasty malt and blueberries; notes of chocolate and coffee; plenty sweet; more bitter in the finish, where the 7.5% makes its presence known

M - medium/full bodied with above average carbonation; smooth and slightly chewy

O - I'm not a huge fan of fruit beers, but the blueberries in this one blend well with the grain for a very balanced flavor.

Appearance - Pours a dark brownish/black color with a VERY small frothy tan head.. Has thin lacing.

Smell - Strong scent of blueberries that mostly drowns out everything else. I also

Taste - Toasted malts up front, with blueberries and a hint of chocolate. Quite bitter with a strong alcohol bite in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with high carbonation.

Overall - To be honest.. I can't stand this beer lol. Maybe it's just because I don't like stouts, but I thought this one would be different. I didn't really taste any oatmeal either.

A-dark black with small to no head. A bit on the still side.

S-fresh blueberries with a bit of a chocolate malt and anise smell.

T-big licorice flavor which I believe is supposed to be the blueberry. blueberry comes just a bit and finishes with a chocolate malt/maltiness with a hint of alcohol heat.

M-very low carb and medium body.

O-good beer but not a favorite by any means. Give credit to a small brewer though.

APPEARANCE
Pours of a very dark brown. Retains very little head.

SMELL
Definitely has a very strong smell of sweet blueberries.

TASTE
It is made of roasted malts with a hint of sweetness. If there is some oats, it is not very prominent.

MOUTHFEEL
It is well-carbonated, but has a creamy feel.

OVERALL
It is an ok beer. It is different from the Seadog Blueberry because this is a stout. It is a very good attempt and is well worth a try.

poured (into a tulip) a thin dark brown with a tiny amount of head which quickly disappeared. smells of toasted oats, greek olives.. not getting a blueberry scent aside from smelling the neck of the bottle. yeesh, the taste does not mix well at all. tastes like bitter/sour blueberries, ashes, cedar wood. i was really hoping for a tasty midnight treat but this is almost undrinkable. i'm giving it a 2 for creativity - but really wish it had followed through with what i had in mind (a sweet fruity stout). for a 7.5% stout, the mouthfeel does not fit - it is a light bodied (MAYBE leaning towards medium bodied) very watery low carbonated ale.. more like a porter honestly.

overall i am not happy with this beer. luckily it has a high abv so it wasn't a total waste of money, but i do feel like i've been screwed with a little. i really hope the orange cream ale is a bit better than this one. the aftertaste is almost straight up wooden - which could be a good thing if it were a different wood than cedar which leaves its presence strongly.
