What beer should be. A great tasting ale beer with a hoppy taste and a nutty after taste.

Great Flavor. Minimal head out of bottle, little lacing. Big Flavor from the start. Nice. Description says warming, it does. Deep Amber/light Ruby color. Great blend of flavors not overpowering any of the others. Layers of flavor in this one. I like this better than Bully Porter and it was great. If you haven't tried it you're missing out on this one.

Fresh hop seasonal beers are an awesome idea. Too many Holiday beers tend to center on unusual seasonings and other nontraditional ingredients. Nutcracker goes back to the basics by using hops and malts in an attempt to craft holiday flavors. The effort is very well done. This ale is spicy and clean. Happily, Boulevard makes a great holiday beer without selling out.

Tremendous seasonal beer. Not overpowering like some with the seasonal spices though.

Dark hazy copper-garnet, med thick beige head. Fruity aroma. Rich and malty with caramel and chocolate notes. Full mouthfeel. Spicy hop notes and a pungent finish. Lingering bitterness. Really really good.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 What an excellent beer. A lovely dark reddish-amber color. Very spicy hop aroma and taste, with a malty and sweet flavor underneath, and a very nice hop finish. It has the aroma of a very hoppy beer, the finish of a medium hoppy beer, and a flavor excellently balance between malt and hops.

For some reason this used to taste better to me. The aroma isnít as pleasant to me as it once was, but it still looks and tastes great. Another of Boulevards ales that just arenít available long enough.
