COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Velvety black and perfectly opaque, this surprisingly smooth, drinkable beer is a delightful harmony of smoky roasted flavors and tangy, coffee-like notes. Available only on tap at fine establishments throughout our distribution region.

On tap. A great nitro tap and a foamy tan head. The aroma and taste feature plenty of toasted malt and the aftertaste has some slight chocolate and coffee flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was going in with high hopes on this one and the flavor just feel a little flat for me. Really great and viscus dark pour with a small tan head. Great lacing on my glass. Aroma is coffee and chocolate, the mouthfeel was smooth and creamy but the flavor was just missing. Was hoping for more; still very drinkable though.

redpooba (401) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2012
A dark black beer with a white head, not thick like a Murphy’s. The ’dry’ part brings the notes forward to the tongue and lets the roasted malts to some nice work in the mouth.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Appearance: liquid obsidian – black in the middle and slightly smoky see-through along the edges. Khaki cappuccino head is large, voluminous, and fades slowly. Creamy along the edges.
Nose: mild – almost nonexistent. Watery ashes. Faint generic burnt bitterness – brittle and thin. Burnt leaves and twigs.
Palate: far too thin and watery for this style of stout which tends to be a bit thin, but definitely not watery. Taking watery into consideration – ash and chocolate. Thin bitter acrid finish – ash, charcoal.
Final Thoughts: as a style Dry Stout can be brewed very well – Cigar City Hillsborough River comes to mind. Boulevard’s line of standard beers is quite good and I expected much more than what I got from their Dry Stout. A shame, but at least there are a lot of really good beers from Boulevard I can savor instead.

Draft on nitro at elliott bay pizza. Pours black with a dense, surging, creamy tan head. Big roasty coffee nose with baker’s chocolate under that. Creamy body, flattish, not too chalky for nitro. Nice dark chocolate mid palate with a chocolatey finish.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle- Pours a virtual black color with a tan head that fades slowly to a fine film of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate and coffee with a bit of dark fruit. There is a mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Well balanced. Goes down easy. Nothing fancy just and enjoyable stout. Good for a few.

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Pours a black color with creamy tan head, some retention, some lace. Bready, roasty, fruity aromas. Multi-layered bittersweet tastes of malt, toast, caramelized brown sugar, roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, faint black currants and cranberries. Thick, smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel. Distinctive ale yeast esters with a dry finish due to unmalted grain. Delicious.
