OK, one last review for 2013. It items like a cheap stout. Black and not a lot of head, bit nothing funky.

The aroma is fruity the taste similarly is donated by the fruit, but has a little bitter going on. Both taste, aroma and aftertaste are pretty clean.

It all sort of works, but just barely. I intend to avoid this and everything from this brewery going forward.

I bought a six-pack of Buffalo Bill's Blueberry Oatmeal Stout in a grocery store. Poured into a tulip.

Pours a black walnut color, nearly opaque with some garnet red hues when held up to the light. A modest beige head caps the brew.

Smell is decidedly blueberry. Not much besides that.

Taste is a sweet berry flavor up front, with a charcoal and coffee flavor in the middle and a dry blueberry fllavored finish.

Mouthfeel is a little thin for a stout. Dry and not cloying.

Overall a drinkable beery flavored stout. Better than I thought it would be.

When I first opened the bottle, it was like opening a very high carbonated soda with lots of noise! Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick head that took forever to dissipate. I have never seen this before. The aroma was pleasing with like a wheat blueberry pie. Just one sip and your mouth filled up with the carbonation! Damn Sam! Didn't taste too bad but the excessive carbonation killed it overall. Ended up poring the last 1/4 in the sink.
