Buffalo Bill's Brewery in Hayward, California. The label depicts some really blue and fake plastic-looking blueberries, not very realistic. The label around the neck says, "It's What's for Breakfast" which is funny to me because I said that about a different beer a week or so ago. Oh well. I guess there can be more than one breakfast beer!
Nice sweet cocoa aroma, and although I can smell some blueberries, it ain't easy being blue. Now, the blueberry flavors are a much more prominent component than the aroma let on, happily. There is also a large dose of cocoa that jumps out in the beginning. Creamy and fluffy texture, nice bubbles. The blueberries aren't sweet and instead add a refreshing tartness to the beer. A light bitterness prevails even as the chocolate flavors provide more sweet balance.
Now I don't know what you think about this, but I taste cake in this beer, plain yellow cake, just as an interesting after-effect. This beer has two contrasting yet complementary flavors, chocolate and blueberry. A simple beer but with enjoyable flavors. The 7.5% alcohol added some warmth, especially at that end. I was frankly shocked it was that high when I saw it on the label after consuming the entire bottle. C'est la vie! Drink up. Nice beer.
