Day #345 – Buffalo Bills Blueberry Oatmeal Stout

December 12, 2011

This one ought to be interesting. I love stouts, but fruit beers have been a bit of hit or miss for me…and this beer is both rolled into one. A blueberry oatmeal stout it says. Hmm, however I have been fairly pleased with other fruit beers from this company so we shall see. Gotta keep an open mind here!

Buffalo Bills Brewery is contract brewed by Pyramid. It is classified as a fruit beer and rightfully so as they put 30 lbs of blueberries into every batch! Wow! It is also part oatmeal stout and it has 7.5% ABV, so this will be no easy feat to finish. I have set out the bottle on the counter while I was typing this introduction to allow it to warm up to the correct temperature.

This beer pours a dark brown color which is fairly murky. I can see bits of sediment floating in this one. Foamy tan head fades fairly quickly.

The aroma definitely has a blueberry quality, with also a creamy type smell. Some dark malts but mainly very fruity.

The flavor is pretty roasted and bitter. Some sweet fruit towards the beginning but the finish remains very bitter. There is some peppery flavors too which I don’t necessarily care for.
