This ale pours with a dark brown color. The large head appears a dark tan in color. The potent nose reveals dark chocolate, espresso and burned fruit. Sweet, well extracted and very complex, but doesn't quite have the mouth coating, non stop flavor, but rather spurts of deliciousness. A beauty and a beer to put away. Rich, very sweet and vinous, chocolaty.

On tap at 16 tons the other day (and spendy too, at $7 for a 10 ounce glass - very spendy for 16 tons).
The beer pours a blackish brown color with light lacing and fair at best head retention. The nose is attractive, right off the bat however, as I pick up noticeable malt balls, milk chocolate, vanilla and something a kirsch aroma. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, though I'm loving all the tootsie roll and malt ball chocolate flavor I'm picking up. The beer is soft and fairly full on the palate, with the carbonation dialed down considerable (not a problem at all in this well made beer). The finish is long, and the alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile. You notice it after a while, but there's no alcoholic burn or heaviness on the finish.
Very impressive beer from Boulevard, especially considering that this beer had been on tap for nearly a week at 16 tons, and so probably was not at it's best. Would order this one again in a heartbeat.
