Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s 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.

On tap @ Provisions Market. Dark amber/brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of caramel, toast, and cinnamon. Some nutmeg, a touch of booze, and spicy hops. Flavor is on the sweet side. Lots of caramel and toast and brown sugar. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and maybe ginger(bread). Kind of bitter, surprisingly. Floral and spicy hops. Just okay.
