4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 pint 9.4 oz bottle poured into tumbler- poured an evenly turbid darkened tan and lightened brown mixed color. 3mm off tan in color head formed and laced very nicely. Aroma of WHISKY (yeah!), a fair toasted malt, light caramel, and hardwood- very appealing. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was lightly sprinkled with molasses (don’t taste like caramel), a whole lotta smoothness imparted from the treatment of rye in WHISKY barrels comes in the middle, finish is warming with a note of oak. Dayum- a toasted rye with provolone and pastrami would be AWESOME with this! However, in the land of Texughtucky, I get either BBQ, Mexican food, or fast food (it’s not fast, and it’s not food). Help me for I am in hell.

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.
