UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 Nice. It pours a dark, dark brown with a well retained, creamy tan head, thick and good lacing. The aroma is full of roasted barley, coffee, a touch of chocolate, and a hint of anise. Medium bodied, it’s full of rich roasted flavors, lightly sweet, having a nutty bitterness and a dry finish. It’s beers like this that raise the question of the difference between a porter and a stout.kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 25, 2006

On tap at tapwerks.
Perhaps it was the tap, but I was really not that impressed by this beer. Almost no smell whatsoever. Taste was extremely thin and watery, like a light beer that somone tried to spike with dark malts. None of the robust/molasses flavors common to the style. Head was almost non-existent. I will re-rate if I ever try it out of the bottle. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2006
12oz Bottle Pours out almost black with a nice tan head. A nice sweet aroma and good tast. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 15, 2006
12-oz. bottle from tjthresh. Pours opaque with a frothy tan head, somewhat lasting, lined lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee malt, pine and floral hop, faint leathery yeast. Mildly sweet, moderately bitter, medium acidity, hoppy pine flavor, coffee grind finish with cocoa and chalky toasted malt. Dark bodied and fizzy-foamy palate. dwyerpg (6496) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 8, 2006
An excellent color and aroma. A little warm, but really quite an agreeable porter. Not too sweet or heavy, has a little chocolate and much better than their dry stout.

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 (340) - 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.
