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.

Dark brown opaque color with a brown head, and a caramel whiskey aroma. Feels fizzy on the tongue, and has notes of coffee whiskey and hops. Very complex flavor.

VictorSA (169) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Sort med flott brunt skum. Kompleks aroma, som starter i det fruktige med fiken og nektarin. Videre kommer dypere toner av kakao og mørkbrent kaffe, med rosiner, plommer og noe nøtter. Også noe krydret humlepreg og røkt eik kommer frem. Silkemyk i munnen, med lett bitterhet og sødme. God fylde og lengde. Fantastisk øl! (Jomfruland, 18.07.14)

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Pours a rich, opaque sable with a very thick and rather persistent yellowish-tan head. Nose-filling aroma has tones of chocolate, quality coffee, fresh-cut wood and molasses along with hints of caramel and licorice. Fabulous flavor is rather sweet but not cloying, like mocha made from excellent coffee and fine chocolate. A woody overtone provides a little hoppy bitterness to offset the sweet flavor, and hints of caramel, molasses and licorice round out the lip-smacking flavor. Texture has substantial body and a fair amount of tingle, Finish is fizzy and has chocolate and woody tones. Recommended!

SPDickerman (955) - Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours pitch black with little, quickly dissipating brown fizz. Smells like chocolate, coffee, roasted barley, dark fruits and candy sugar. Tastes like cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, espresso, some dark fruit, and some Belgian yeast sweetness. Full-bodied with a smooth, silky texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Dark Truth Stout finishes bitter, a touch dry, and a touch sweet.

Stop reading and go get some of this brew and enjoy! Poured up a dark brown colored body with a frothy thick tan colored head with good retention and light lacing. Aromas of chocolate, smoked wood, dark fruits, and a hint of hops. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Medium-bodied, lots of carbonation, dry finish with lingering flavors of dark chocolates. Would definitely pair this one up with some smoked meats!

I love stouts and this one ranks up there with some of the best i have tried. Was hesitant to try this due to my bad experience with Smokestack series-Imperial Stout. This stout lived up to my expectations! Aromas of fruits, chocolate and expresso. A well-balanced and smooth stout....get your hands on it and try it!
