750ml C&C bottle poured into my snifter
Appearance is a deep and murky medium brown color/amber mix. Head is two and a half inches with the color being slight off-white. Decent amount of lacing sticking to the sides of my glass.
Smell consist of milk chocolate, lactose, vanilla. Dark fruits like cherries, dates, plums. Some pears with scotch and toffee. Caramel and spicy hops finish out the aroma.
Taste upfront consist of milk chocolate with bitterness ensuing. Brown sugar with toffee, vanilla, and caramel midway. Dates and spicy hops in the finish give it a bitter dry finish.
Mouthfeel is full bodied with high carbonation.
Overall this is exactly what Boulevard wanted this beer to be and it was another solid smokestack release. Must try for anyone who likes this style.
