BA beer review #1000!
Poured from the bottle a murky tea color with two fingers of fast-fading beige head. No lacing whatsoever left behind.
Boozy whiskey aroma with molasses and toffee upfront followed by citrus and oak notes.
This was definitely aged in a whiskey barrel. The 12% booze punches you right in the mouth. The molasses and toffee notes are big along with a bit of vanilla, citrus and light fruit in the finish.
Full bodied and dry with a lighter carbonation.
Quite interesting and complex. I liked this beer, though I'm not a whiskey fan at all.

served in the boulevard glass
I sit here drinking this, and am in awe. It is unbelievable how Boulevard has somehow married whisky and beer together in such a perfect matrimony. This has been sitting in my fridge waiting for me to drink it for a little over a week now, and it was torture waiting. It came highly recommended, and was even said to be the best brew from the smokestack series, by one of the beer experts at a local liquor store, and sweet heaven and earth they may actually be right.
Its dark burnt orange and hazy brown appearance with a consistent half finger head atop a beautiful reverse waterfall of carbonation is immaculate.
the taste is something like i've never had before. like i said before, this marriage was meant to be. to have a 12% brew be so classy and smooth with little to no sign of an alcoholic bite is beyond me. This is a must try for anyone and everyone.

4.24/5 rDev 0%
A: Pours a cloudy brown hue with thick, white, 2-finger head that slowly dissipates, leaving a great trail down the side of the glass ending in a solid lace.
S: Malty aroma with a sweet alcoholic whiskey background.
T: Complex sweet rye malt with a smooth whiskey wood background. Finishes on the dry boozy side.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Interesting brew. Great complex flavors and aromas.

750ml bottle with Bottle No. 17291; Best By: Feb. 2014; Batch: 2012-2
The beer poured a brown/dark copper color, with noticeble carboantion rising to the top of the glass, off white/cream colored head that dissipated in the blink of any eye.
The beer gave off an aroma of Dark fruits, wood, a hint of smoke and whiskey. In my opinion, this was the best part of the beer.
The taste was way too much whiskey for me and not enough of Rye. I like a good Rye beer, which is why I bought this one, but if I wanted whiskey, I would have poured a Johnnie Walker instead.
The beer had a medium feel mouth feel to it, it had good carbonation, and the alcohol was very noticeable.
Overall, while I applaud the creativity, I think that this one is a miss, but given the overall rating, I would be willing to give it another shot.
