3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz from eboats. Pours a dark frown with a big fluffy light beige head. Leaves some light lacing. Nose is light sweet chocolate and some faint dark fruits. Flavors of dry chocolate, light malted chocolate and a dry bitter finish. Seems like some coffee was left to burn a little bit.

Bottle courtesy of kramer17801. Dark brown with light tan head, fades to creamy film/ring over time. Coats the glass just slightly. Decent aroma although somewhat muted. Chocolate up front, some faint dark fruit, with coffee in the background. Flavor much the same, mostlty chocolate, fades to a more pronounced coffee. Finishes with dry bitter coffee.

A real chocoffee aroma. Pours with a foamy average lasting tan head. Moderate initial and finishing bitter with average duration. Medium bodied beer that with just the slightest bit of watery at the end. I wish it was just a tiny bit sweeter. I liked it and would be tickled to find it on tap anywhere.

I really enjoy Boulevard. This porter is not my fav. from them but is great for the money and availability. Smokey aroma and a nice rooated coffee flavor. Failry sweet and finishes dry. Had better and worse.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Pours reddish black with a huge brown/tan head that lasts the whole glass. Laces beautifully. Smells of chocolate and coffee, with tons of malt. Exceptionally smooth and balanced with hearty but not overpowering carbonation. Finishes bitter and dry, but surprisingly clean. Certainly a great porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly opaque black with a large, well retained light brown head. Aroma is smoke and roasted coffee, with a touch of chocolate. Sweet and malty in the fore, but finishes quite bitter and dry. However, it’s a tad over carbonated IMO.

Bottle from eboats Thanks!
Pours a rich black/brown with an ample-sized head. Aroma of chocolate, wood, and malt. Flavor is bitter chocolate with coffee undertones. Nice balance and easy drinking. Palate is smooth. I’d love more of this.

This was a pretty good brew. I was very supprised in the amount of head. It was a little bitter...but still good.
