Nutcracker Ale is Boulevardís special offering for the holiday season. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the "spiciness" of freshly harvested "wet" Chinook hops.

This one has alot of nuts and alot of spices, its almost like a nut brown with some ginger or something in it. Interesting but understated. Not really a session beer as id only have one in a sitting due ot the weird spices.

Pours a very deep red. Not much light can get through this brew. Aroma is faint, almost nothing. Thereís a ghost of the chinooks and some spice. The flavor is a bit nutty, a bit hoppy, some carbination, and a hint of alchohol.

Brown and clear. Not much head. Smells nice, with spicy and sweet notes. Taste though is too spicy for me. A definite blend of many flavors, but with no balance.

Pours redish brown and slightly opaque. Aroma is spicy and malty. Flavor is of cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, peraps ginger. The body is fine, but, IMO, not enough hops to balance it. Lingering alcohol in the finish.

Brown in color with little head. Spicy aroma which also carried into the flavor. Nice winter treat.

Wow. Iím usually not a fan of these kinds of ales (Cascade hops). But I really like this one. The only reason I git it was b/c I hd tried their Bully! Porter and loved it. Is seasonal, so you can only get it in the winter. Nice hoppiness and spicyness. The hop heads will love this. Nice in a cold winterís night.

Muddy brown pour produced little head. Nice malty aroma with a very hoppy initial flavor. Extended finish leaves a creamy bready flavor behind. Not a wonderful beer, but good on occasion
