Black with moderate tan head. Pleasant chocolate aroma. The flavor is more black malt, I think, sort of ashy, which blends fairly nicely with a very earthy bitterness.

Very good porter!
Look pours a deep dark almost black
Smell can smell the roastiness and chocolate
Taste smoky taste with hints of coffee and chocolate plus slight hippiness but not over bearing
Feel full bodied with slight heat from alcohol
Overall great beer and one to share with friends

L: one of the darkest most opaque beers out there. Khaki head with amazing retention and great lacing
S: like a spicy Mexican coffee or hot chocolate
Tastes just like it smells but not overbearing In coffee hints.
Finish: one of the smoothest finishes on a porter out there.
Overall: a must try.

This isn't my favorite porter, but I do think it's an above average American porter.

Beer pours a coffee color with a thick tan head that dissipates slowly with a lot of lacing. I figure this is Boulevards version of the world famous Sam Smith's Taddy Porter but falls short. It's the hoppiest porters I've had. Overall a lot better porters out there.

This a well balanced porter. Pours a very dark brown / black with shades of red emerging when backlit. Small head that persists throughout. Smell is caramel, molasses, bread, raisins and roast. Hints of roast and higher lovibond fruity caramel in the taste. Finishes dry with some hop flavor. This is a good dark, roasty American-style beer. A little more malt depth and it would be great. Great value beer from Boulevard - worth the time and money to pick one of these up.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a dark brown color with a lighter brown note along the sides. A finger's worth of white foamy head sat atop and gently dissolved to leave some spotty messy lace running here and there.
The aroma captured a fine meshing between roasty coffee beans, light grounds, some dark chocolate, light baker's chocolate, and dark fruits.
The flavor was a nice blend of roasty coffee to dark fruity sweetness and seemed to kick the dark chocolate and baker's chocolate a bit further back here. Moderate sweetness in the aftertaste through a blend of the dark fruits, dark chocolate and coffee beans/somewhat "ground"-like.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt as projected by the brewer. Moderate finish of the dark fruits to the roast (not much grip, pretty smooth for the most part).
Overall, as an English porter, I'd say this one definitely works. It's one that I'd come back to if given the chance. Thanks Ben.
