Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

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.

This is a delicious brew! Pours a blacker then black color with a nice thick tan head. Lots of lacing left on the glass after sipping. Couldn't ask for a nicer looking beer. The smell is also very good with a lovely smell of roasted malts. This beer is very complex on the flavor for me it tastes similar to chocolate malts but they aren't listed in the description. I do pick the slight sweetness up with nice toasty malt finish. Leaves kind of a sweet dark after taste on the palate. Not to heavy but super complex on the flavor and a really neat bottle to boot. :) For sure will buy this one again!
