I decided, since I moved here to Kansas, that I should try some of the 'local' beer. Even though Kansas City is about a 4 hour drive from here, and in a different state, Boulevard is one of the few breweries in the area. They mostly taste bland compared to micro-brews. It is almost like they want to have the image of a local micro-brew while having the taste of a major, commercial brewery.
Their beers are everywhere around here, grocery stores, bars, restaurants, and even gas stations. But this beer is only found at select liquor stores with large selections. I found it in a 750mL bottle that had a cork so tight that I used a wine cork screw to open. After pouring it into my chalice I realized that it was going to be worth the investment.
A - Deep black/brown with a four finger tan head that never fully receded. Exactly what a stout should have.
S - Light carmel and hops. Not as full.
T - burnt coffee and malts with a faint aftertaste of fruit. Not sweet, but not bitter. It is well balanced and complex enough to make you continue to explore.
M - Thick and smooth. Not as creamy as most stouts.
D - medium to low carbonation. But it it is one of the more drinkable stouts that I have tried.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
