DuffMan (6751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. For some reason I made no notes on appearance, so I’ll score it average. The nose is sweet grains, lightly caramelized. The palate is much the same, maybe a touch of cooked apple. Missing the rye character for the caramel.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and rye with a bit of underlying earthiness. Flavor is some what dull with light grain, bread and just a hint of rye.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a mostly clear amber, hazed slightly by some tiny suspended sediment in the glass, with a small off-white head that settles into a film and small ring. Aroma of rye, caramel, tea, toast, grass, a bit of pepper, and sweat. Flavor of rye, toast, caramel, very dry grains, leaves, and wood chips. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. A little disappointing based on normal Boulevard output.

BVery (6283) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Nice deep murky amber pour with a off white head and good retention. That’s where the excitement stops. Dirty dusty malts, some carbonation but overall just a bit bland. Finishes kind of dry and astringent.

drowland (6038) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12/27/13. 12oz courtesy bottle from pepsican! Reddish pour with a nice khaki head that sticks around and laces well. Malty aroma, a little tang and spice, caramel. Malty flavor, earthy and floral, a little spice. Not bad.

blutt59 (6019) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
bottled, reddish amber in color , nice caramel and metal nose, flavor has some rye and pine but not overly so, nice balance although somewhat softer than expected, nice finish

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from the sampler. Rich copper colored body with a dense off white head on top. The nose is rich with some walnuts and grapefruit. Notes of caramel and a little bit of spice are also present. The body is slick and slightly greasy with light carbonation. There is a little hint of spice at the front and it is more definite rye on the back end. Bits of walnuts are present with some dough and an odd citrus that is not well balanced. A let down for Boulevard. Not bad, but just nothing really reaches out and grabs me.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 12, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was rye. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The ok flavor contained notes of rye and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
