Notes/Commercial Description:
Throughout the ages, man has been fascinated by the quest for hidden knowledge, the search for the secret to transforming the elemental into the extraordinary, the simple into the sublime. Ladies and gentlemen, we present for your consideration this exotic, inky concoction, the almost magical creation of our modern day alchemists who have turned humble grains—barley, wheat, rye, and oats—into black, liquid gold. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, crème brulée. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish.

60 IBU

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Thick black with a nice head and nice lacing throughout

S: Not getting anything too overpowering. Sweet, and nutty.

T: Starts off by hitting you with a thick layer of smoke. Mellows out to almost an Oyster Stout with lots of malt. Lingering taste of walnuts and smoke.

M: A little thinner than most stouts but that's made up for by a little bit of extra carbonation

O: A great beer, glad I tried it. Definitely check this out if you like smokey beers.

Just by the appearance after pouring, I knew I was in for a treat.

Very nice head, massive lacing.

Mouthfeel is good..maybe a bit too much carbonation, so it feels a little thin.

Very nice all-around taste; the 9.75% ABV makes itself known. And you can certainly taste the hops in this one. Nice and smokey w/o being too dry.

I had no expectations when I picked these up, but found an excellent beer! Plus it's widely available and pretty inexpensive.

Dark as night with a quarter inch thick tawny brown head. Brussels lacing. The aroma is subtle but in it I detect a bit of fig and black licorice. The flavor is initially bitter with roasted barley and then you get a quick follow up of sweetness along the lines of plum and fig. The mouth is somewhat tongue prickling bitter from the barley and then you get a rush of warmth from the alcohol.

A - Pitch black, 1 finger of tan head. Looks black like coal and creamy!

S - Sweet, black cherries, hop spice. Big aroma!

T - Black malts up front, then sweet kicks in. Cream brûlée almost. Nice hop kick in the aftertaste as well, which is not always seen in a stout. Well done!

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated and smooth

O - Another great brew from Boulevard. Not a belgium style which they dominate, but another style which they just crush. These guys are good
