2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Once again, Boulevard appeals to the palate with this barrel aged and non-barrel aged blend. If it were 100% barrel aged it would be provocative and have more character. I found this brew to be a bit bland like the other Smokestack part barrel aged blends. I don’t like paying for champagne cork top bottle pricey beer and feel snake bit after I drank it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dull reddish-brown from a bottle, espresso crema colored head with some lacing. Aroma is of a spiced whiskey. Flavor starts with caramelized brown sugar, followed by vanilla, slight sour cherry and baked apples, all intertwined with that hearty rye earthiness. Well-balanced yet boozy, feels like a whiskey drink without as strong a hit of alcohol on the back of the throat. Very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 750 ml. 2012 bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, copper color, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was ripe fruit as dark grape & cherry, and maybe a touch of orange rind, with caramel/toffee sweetness, a bit of barrel vanilla, and rye & hop spiciness. Ditto on the taste, with a medium+ body, moderate carbonation, whiskey booziness, and dry finish. Good complexity, and nicely sipable.
