12oz bottle picked up as part of the boulevard mixed 12 pack. best by 10/21/11. boulevard is new to the chicago area and what better way to get to know them than the mixed box with 6 different beers in it? drank out of my samuel adams perfect pint glass.
A- a hardy pour yields a dark brown colored body that has ruby red highlights along the edges. think a slightly darker than cola color. there is a tall and fluffy khaki colored head on top. the head takes its time falling, and leaves behind sticky globs of lacing.
S- the nose is very dark. lots of dark roasted coffee/espresso. some dark chocolate. a little bit of caramel. decently hoppy smelling.
T- the taste starts out with more of the dark roasted malts that i could smell. theyre almost burnt tasting. lots of rich dark chocolate. some caramel adds a little bit of sweetness. lots of coffee/espresso/hops at the end. rich and decadent.
M- the body is a little thin for my liking, but probably acceptable for the style and size. the carbonation is definitely too high.
O- overall, this beer is very flavorful for such a moderate ABV. something i can see myself drinking a couple of in a sitting. ill check this one out again. welcome to chicago, boulevard.

33cl bottle (bb 06/2014) into a tulip. Ruby brown color, three finger beige foamy head with good lacing and ok retention. Smell has roasted dark malts and coffee, on the first whiff right after pouring a citrusy fresh smell. Sweet roasted malts and dark coffee coming up on the taste, dry aftertaste with some hop bitterness and long lasting roastiness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. A pleasant porter to be sipped on a cold rainy evening.
