Pours dark brown with a big tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Heavy roasted malt flavor upfront with a nice hop flavor in the backend. The bitterness is from the roasted barley not from the hops. bigcat03 (323) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUL 31, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into english pint - Pours BLACK with a 4 finger dark beige head that takes a while to go down and leaves some nice lace; Malt, lots of chocolate, some roast, espresso, and caramel to the nose; I could smell this all day! A complex initial taste with some hops, coffee, caramel, and a good bit of malt; A roasty, but mainly hoppy backtaste; It’s Boulevard, so you’ve got to expect a quality beer. My first porter and I really enjoyed it! Very smooth and drinkable. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Darrrrk brown with tan head. Aroma is amazing! Brown sugar, molasses, dark malts. Mmm... Taste is a fantastic porter. Some sweet maltiness, lots of brown sugar and caramel. Still, it’s got some dark roast flavors too. I like the balance and I like the aroma a lot. Very delicious. Thanks to my buddy vexer for sending to me! trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2006
A perfect porter in my mind. Great appearance and aroma with a brown lasting head. One of the better domistic beers and another great beer from Boulevard Brewing. You should try one today! Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Great fluffy head upon pour. Nice lacing left on glass.
Roasted scent and flavor perk up as temp rises. Tastes of soft bitteness of coffee and soft hops dance nicely with the gentle malt. Easy to drink brew.
Good brew, definetly worth a try.

Bottle in S.D. Poured a black color with a huge frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted coffee dark chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted coffee flavor with a medium bitter sweet finish of moderate duration. This is the standout brew that I have had from this brewer. ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with good sized tan head. Aroma is roasty. Taste is dry with chocolate and a light bitterness. kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2006
(bottle) Deep black with large tan head. Nice lace. Aroma of very roasted malt. Flavor is bitter roast malt with coffee and a hop bitterness in the finish. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2006
A pleasant earthiness/grassiness abounds in this heavily roasted porter. Dark brown body, tannish head. Roasted malts are heavy in the aroma, along with cocoa and bitter coffee. Thick and full-bodied. Chewy mouthfeel. The hops are mild and the alcohol is very light, which makes this a good beer to have with dinner (as with most porters). Good overall. uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - JUN 15, 2006
A full to medium body deep brown ale. Plenty of complex roasted malty flavors, just a bit too sweet. Nice hop quality, maybe just a bit shy of enough hop presence but near the top of this class. A very good beer.
