This poured a dark amber color with a moderate to large beige head. The aroma contains some dark fruit, toffee, molasses, caramel and spices pretty nice! The flavor is somewhat sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. I’m tasting cherries, caramel, molasses, raisins, and toffee. I also detect a hint of spices. Overall this is a nice beer!

Pours a rusty, hazed burnt orange with a fluffy, light tan head. The aroma is full of fresh hopped goodness. Pine needles , spices, peaches and a bit of fruitiness I imagine is coming from the yeast. Flavors of sweet caramel and toffee in the front. Finishes with oranges, brown sugar,:spicy, piny hops, and a cookie dough like maltiness Med-full in body, with absolutely no alcohol heat. This batch has a far more pronounced hop character than I remember in years past, which isn’t a bad thing. Damn, it’s good this year!!

A hazy caramel colored beer with a small beige head. The aroma is piney and bubblegum, really nice. The flavor is similar with a pleasant bitterness in the finish. An all around easy to drink and enjoyable beer.

Very dark orange pour with a thin beige head. Smell the citrusy hops, resin, and caramel. Body is super smooth. Rich caramel in the front and spiciness/bitterness in the finish. Creamy and delicious. Love this stuff. First winter beer that I can highly recommend. Boulevard makes damn good beers.

Bottle from elevated with commonmac. Dark plum with bubbly off white head. Subtle smell. Expected more spice nose. Malty spicy and slight hop finish. Slightly warming. Nice mouthfeel and finish. Some dark fruit. Taste seems to change over time. Grows on me. A bit oily. Pretty darn good.
