3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thick black with small head. Aroma primarily of roasted (toasted) malt. Flavor is very smooth, with coffee, burnt toast, some chocolate, and fairly noticeable hops in the background (rather unusual for a porter?). It’s a very comfortable, warming, winter type of beer.
12floz bottle, BBD: 02..02.2018, $1.25 unit cost as part of a BLVD sampler, nonic glass. On the a huge head forms, which settles with a plateau shape atop a dark brown body with ruby hues when held to the light. The aroma as expected showcases a gritty roasted character with essences of earthy hoppiness. I used to find this beer overly roasted for a porter, but for this review I find it merely to be part of the robustness without being too much. The charred aspect seems tempered. Now it tastes merely like buttered toast that is not quite burnt. Body is medium-full, and it is a decent option if options are limited for normal ABV dark ales in a given situation.

From Sep 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(best by Jan 5, 2007) a very dark brown with a large head of foam that shrank slowly and ended up being a solid 1" layer for the entire session.
The smell is a mix of roasted and sweet malt.
The taste is big on the roasted malt with a good presence of sweet malt, chocolate, and some nice bitter hop notes near the finish to balance this Porter out really well. That makes out for some excellent drinkability in my book! ;^)
Bottom line: I *love* this Porter. I highly recommend it!!
Man, I really do love this offering by Boulevard

Draft @ Boulevard- Pours pitch with a white head. Aroma is all about the toasty coffee notes, drying in the finish. Nice! DiarmaidBHK (5913) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Sampler at Boulevard Beer Hall. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose and tongue along with some grapefruit notes. Finished with some solid bitterness. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2017
Draft @ Brody’s. Pours a clear ruby red beer with a nice brownish head on top. Aroma has roasty coffee notes, some milky chocolate and some red fruits. Flavor is mildly bittersweet, hints of the coffee and softer chocolate. A bit of a thin mouthfeel, very low in carbonation and the chocolate tones come back in the aftertaste. Nice in balance, very easy to drink and full in flavor. Nice.

Tumma väri, paksu vaahto. Maltainen, savuinen tuoksu ja sama jatkuu maussa. Oikein hyvä tuote. dutchdarthvader (357) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2017
(Tap) De geur van chocolade en koffie. Donker biertje. Met fijn en licht koolzuur. Proeft zoals die smaakt naar koffie en chocola met een bittertje. Verrassend gezien het lage alcohol percentage. Top :-) kevinator63 (36) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Dark and ominous, like a porter should be. Flavorful, malty, silky smooth. A most excellent offering, bottle from my cellar. I would like morr. markoijelena (3149) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - MAR 19, 2017
Draft 0.15l at Foeders Amstedam, The Netherlands. 15.02.2017. Pour it dark color with big white head. Aroma roasted malt and pretty much yeasty. Taste chocolate with roasted malt, it’s little bit flat and watery for my opinion, medium bitterness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, abrupt finish. mjik83 (1650) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2017
