A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Just a bit too big of flavors for me. It was booze and spice from the rye. Nothing really else. Seemed like a bit of a hot mess, but ther flavors that were there were pretty nice.

Bottle… Tally Tasting ‘10… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, white head. Good retention. The nose is of spicy hops and spicy grain. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Spicy, coarse, dry flavor and finish.

Bottle thanks to drfabulous. Pours a very dark amber, almost reddish. Nose and taste of rye, caramel malts and whiskey barrel. Very smooth and tasty with slight whiskey aftertaste. I also detect some subtle grape and vinous notes.

750 ml bottle thanks to Eugene, shared with some folks during Mormon fourth of July, which comes on the 3rd by the way. Pours a light brown color with a huge beige head. The aroma is massive whiskey, some wood as well. The flavor is likewise dominated by whiskey, some spicy rye, loads of buttery whiskey and spicy hops. Good.

6/26/10. Shared at the Tally Tasting 2010 by me. This is literally the notes I took (it was a bit late in the tasting): I can’t even keep up. Love the bourbon, love the spicy rye. Hell yes. Mmmmm.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle #4342 from me. Poured a hazy umber body topped with fine ivory head and left tons of sticky lacing on the glass. Aromas of spices, rye, some alcohol and yeast. Flavor is rye forward, malty sweet, alcohol, spicy yeast and a nice, mild bitter finish. Very active carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel. An interesting, big beer and another great effort from Boulevard.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish brown color with a off white head. Has the smell of rye and whiskey. Taste is more or less the same. It has a nice warming effect to it as well as it goes down. To much whiskey for me. I have to say this is the first Boulevard beer I really didn’t care for.
