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.

Bottle pours opaque black with thick tan head. Roast, oatmeal, coffee, alcohol. Moderately bitter. Sticky sweetness. Full, creamy body with some liveliness. Aromas are good but too sweet for my tastes.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

arn8897 (96) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
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.

Dark pour with a nice head. Lots of fruit in the aroma. Plums, raisins, figs, that sort of thing. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Prufrockstar (1307) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2015
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
