COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

2014.04.23 - Boulevard Dark Truth Stout - 12 oz bottle best by 5/07/14 A tasty stout. Not as complex as something like Bourbon County but it is rich. Mostly a smoky flavor without being outright "smoked". Some peat like notes at finish. Some sweet maltiness. Took a few drinks for my palate to catch up. It's pretty good afterward. 6/4/7/3/14

Pours motor oil brown, opaque, with a light brown head. Nose with maple syrup, brown sugar. Nice thick mouth feel with velvety carbonation. Medium to full mouthfeel starts bitter with dark chocolate moving into a fig, molassas and subtle alcohol finish.

M82 (276) - Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2014
A tall cookie colored frothy head floats on a black body with rich dark amber highlights, the label really nails the aroma and flavor on this one, bright citrus fruity contrasting on espresso roastiness with dried dark fruit components, dry and lean overall with a touch of dark milk chocolate gaining influence into the residual, smelling this blind I would probably guess it was a Belgian black ipa, some additional herbal aromatics and treacle flavor components as this warms, tasting it would have me confused between the previously mentioned style and a dark Belgian strong, with warmth the more obvious imperial stout characteristics assert themselves, as unique as it is enjoyable

bpr77 (264) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Pours black with a copper tint in direct light. Chocolatey tan head. Poured a large frothy head inch and half. Looks very good in a glass and the head holds for a long time . Aroma of roasted malt, smoke and faint hint of chocolate. Flavor is dark chocolate , mild coffee, something fruity is detectable. Medium bodied. Finishes clean a really good stout and 9.7 alcohol and the flavor masks it well

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle to snifter: Pours a near pitch black with plentiful dense mocha froth to cap things off. Perfect lacing, like a timeline of tonight’s drinking. Crazy mix of aromas - burnt wood, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, subdued hops, subtle dark fruit, brown sugar. The flavors are equally impressive - milk chocolate, charred oak, harsh vanilla, simple syrup. This is a great beer. Tons of complexity, tons of potential in the cellar.

ERB92 (261) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
Coffee, chocolate, leather, dried fruits and licorice in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a interesting, complex beer with a good rich flavour.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Dark black pour into thick tannish-brown head that slowly dissipates into melting lacing and a swirl of pooling foam. Aroma of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Intiial flavor of sweet dark chocolate that fades into a smoky oak barrel finish.

Maltser85 (253) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours almost black with 2 fingers of a tan head that is a mixture of tight bubbles and rocky ones. Aroma is wonderful. Dark fruit, figs, plums, caramel, sugar, burnt sugar, roast, espresso notes. Taste is the nose with some slight rye spice. Good one guys!

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Aroma- molasses, rum-soaked raisins, oak, slight roasted notes Appearance- pitch black with an off-white head Taste- booze hits upfront followed by some oak, astringency, roasted notes, dark chocolate, and some more alcohol Palate- heavy but not quite on par with the flavors Overall- A hot mess mostly. Some redeeming qualities but not near enough to uplift this brew.
