Notes/Commercial Description:
Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s holiday gift for real beer lovers. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the “spiciness” of freshly harvested Chinook hops.

Did not taste like a high ABV beer. Wasn't too bitter. Was interesting. Easy to drink for what I was expecting. Would definitely try again.

Pour is deep copper to ruby color with a hearty off white head that fades fairly quickly. Leaves good lacing behind. Aroma is of malt sweetness, candy sugar and hops. Taste is slightly sweet with hints of candy sugar, plum, and hops. Can definitely tell the hops are chinook with the bit of spice. Mouthfeel is on the heavier side and coats the mouth. Overall a very nice winter warmer made better with the addition of fresh hops. A wintertime staple.
