look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured into standard pint glass.

A: Very dark dark brown almost black. Almost no light can be seen through the glass when held to a incandescent bulb. There is a solid 1 finger dark tan head that lasted until the end.

S: Acrid and burnt smell with a little bit of molasses sweetness.

T: This one smacked me with bitterness. I don't know if it is from the hops or the roasted grains. Wherever it is coming from it is way over the top for my idea of a porter. I love hoppy beers but not this one. The hop bitterness lingers in the back of my throat for a several minutes between drinks.

M: Prickly carbonated when it first hits my tongue but it settles down to a creamier feel in the back of my throat.

D: I would have to rate this one very low. There are many other porters that work better for me. I like bitter beers and most porters but the combination of a bitter porter misses the mark for me. Boulevard is my home town brewery and several of their beers are among my most loved beers. This one...not so much.
