a real unique take on the style here. it looks alright, maybe a little thin in body and short on head, not quite as decadent and dreamy as the best ones look, but certainly nothing wrong with it in my wine glass. the nose is what gets interesting. it really smells like fresh canned blueberry jam, true and through, its insane how the dark fruit rises above the roast of the barley and the sweetness of the oats. eyes closed i would think i am smelling blueberry pie or jam, or that stuff they put on your belgian waffle at dennys. flavors i am not used to in a stout for sure, the taste is just like the nose, but i get the stout part too this time. it is indeed a little thin, lacking on the oat richness, but this curious blueberry thing more than makes up for it in terms of the overall enjoyment of the brew. havent had much from browns, so this is a pretty inspiring first impression. more body would make this, its a little too slick as it is, and could dry out just a touch, but a really solid beer, different because of the berry element. i really liked this.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours what I suppose is technically a very dark brown because of the ruby red highlights coming through the bottom of the glass. Has tan one finger head that does not linger for long and leaves a bit of lacing as it dissipates. Carbonation is evident from some bubbles streaming to the top. Wish the head was a bit creamier but looks pretty nice nonetheless. (3.5)

S- Milk chocolate and dark fruits such as raisins come through. A bit of roasted malt and also a caramel/toffee quality. Perhaps a slight English hop character but it's difficult to tell with the presence of the very nice chocolate and dark fruit notes. Subdued but pleasant. (3.75)

T- The milk chocolate and dark fruit character is most evident to start and they marry quite nicely. The caramel/toffee comes through as the finish begins and the finish brings with it an earthy hop bitterness. The roasted malt is evident pretty much throughout. Not quite as refined as the nose but nice. (3.5)

M- This is where the oats are evident as the mouthfeel has that trademark silkiness associated with the style. It does not finish especially dry and it lingers for a bit, which I find to be very pleasing. I find the level of carbonation to be a little harsh and it intrudes to on the silkiness. (3.4)

O- A decent oatmeal stout that I was happy to pick up as it's brew only a few hours away. I really thought that the nose was great, and if the rest of the beer could rise to that level this would be nearing a must-have. (3.55)
