Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin but resiliant tan head. Aroma is coffee and cocoa. Taste is also coffee, chocolate and maybe even some sweet chewing tobacco all wrapped up in a mild tartness. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Good stuff! argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2012

Three ounce taste poured from bottle at Boulevard Tasting class at Total Wine and Beer in Chantilly, VA.
Clear , dark red-brown with off-white head and very good lacing.
Aroma of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, butterscotch and fruit.
Taste of sweet caramel, dark fruit and oak followed by a spooky smokey sweet roast malt flavor that made me think of the flavor you might get by squeezing the last from drops if coffee from over-roasted grounds into brown sugar. Slightly tart and bitter flavors add a little bite at the finish.
Medium/full body and medium/light carbonation.

Boulevard Collaboration No. 3 Stingo - Good head and lacing. Brown with reddish tint. Inviting, complex aroma that is roasty, woody, caramel, brown sugary, bready, cocoa, and maybe somewhat floral and dark purple fruity. Taste is less complex, but nice - very roasty, bready, and somewhat stout-like, but not heavy-bodied. ABV very well-hidden. I read that this is more sour and tart when drunk at room temp - I let mine cool in the fridge for a couple of hours before drinking. RobertDale (6913) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 24, 2012

10oz draught at Barley’s Brewhouse. Pours a dark amber with strong red hues. Aroma of peat, toasted grain, molasses. Flavor is raisin, peat, molasses, coffee. Slightly sweet and dry in the finish. vyvvy (6777) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours very dark with a deep red hue and large tan head. The aroma is quite malty with caramel, toffee, doughiness, berries, hints of sourness and an overall richness. Medium / thick body that’s very smooth and has a low amount of flowing semi-soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with a more pronounced berry-esque sourness, but it is still malt forward with dark doughiness, dates, figs and a sourness than works for it. The finish is spicy, fruity, sour and malty - very well done unique beer.
