I poured this from a 750ml bottle into a clean tulip glass.
Appearance: Very dark with a slight red hue when held to the light, single stream of bubbles racing to the thick foamy head that was about 2.5 finger tall. Good lacing as I finish the glass.
Smell: definite coffee smell, dark and rich and sweet. Chocolate and caramel nut come through nicely.
Taste: a good blend of coffee and malted barley and rye. Slight taste of chocolate comes through.
Mouth feel: crisp with a solid feel. Not overly heavy or creamy. In my opinion it could have been a little creamy but that is about the only thing it’s missing.
Overall: love the beer. A really nice dark roasted caramel taste compliments the rich and aromatic coffee taste. An Ethiopian Sidamo coffee is used according to the bottle. Boulevard has really got a great beer this time. I think it is a special release and might not be available again so I must go out and stock up.
Serving type: bottle
