4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Pours dark as night with a two and a half finger dark, creamy mocha colored head. The head is surprising for the style and alcohol content. Leaves some thick lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, some peat, fig, plum, some spiciness from the belgian yeast and hops, molasses. Tastes very much like it smells. At the start you get an intense roastiness. Roasted chocolate, espresso, some peat and ash characters. Then in the middle you get a lot more sweet qualities. Get the dark fruits like sweet plum and fig, as well as some milk chocolate and molasses. The finish is more roasted flavors, some tobacco, plum, some tart qualities, a lot more peat, stays sweet too. Perhaps a tiny bit of alcohol on the finish, but goes well with the intense roasted qualities. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel throughout. Pretty full body. Gets more complex as it warms. This is a terrific, complex imperial stout.

The aroma is burnt malt, coffee, chocolate, wood, and grassy hops. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma with a super bitter finish. The palate is slightly thin for the style but OK. Overall the beer is fine but overrated. I would have enjoyed it more without all the bitterness.

Black body, medium to large tan head, spotty lacing. Mellow roast, bittersweet chocolate, caramel, moderate earth, a touch of coffee. Medium to full bodied, moderate to gentle carbonation, mellow sweetness, lingering, rounded finish.

From one of those odd looking Boulevard 12 oz bottles into a snifter. Well within best by date. Pop the top and woah! The aroma is powerful and wonderful! Sweet malt overload. World class. A couple of inches of brownish head. Dark as midnight but not black; brown. Mouthfeel is actually very light for this big a stout but that's how I like them. Taste is sweet brownies whiskey coconut mild vanilla and spices. Really good stout. Solid in every way. Glad Boulevard sells near me finally.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a small creamy head that fades to a messy ring. Aromas are plums, roast, dark bread and cocoa. Tastes like an odd mix of a stout and a quad. Plums mixed with roast is kinda weird. Chalky mouthfeel and unpleasant aftertaste. It’s decent but a bit odd to me.

Pours dark brown to black with a tan head. Aromas of dark fruit like fig or plums. Also a little coffee and smokiness. Taste the same. Nice lacing in the glass. Palate is medium overall. Nice stout but not overwhelming.

Excellent beer. Again a beer of my favourite style. Dark thick and very rich in flavour. Delicious!

Imperial stout blind tasting, sample 9 of 13. Near black pour, lasting khaki foamy head. Alcohol, roast. Damn, it gets hard to say things about imperial stouts the longer this goes on.

Definitely a high smoke flavor but not overwhelming. Deep coloring. Flavor is not extra rich but still strong
