Perhaps it was because it was a draught, but it took a while to turn from a chocolate milk color to an opaque black with a lingering thick brown head. The aroma is light but consists mostly of chocolate and roasted coffee notes. The flavor is lightly roasted coffee with some chocolate, but just a bit thin, as.was the palate. Pretty good, but pretty standard.

12oz bottle... pours a watery dark brown, a very light tan head only forms a ring, a bit disappointing... the nose is a very roasty nut brown ale, coffee backbone, some nice roast, decent... the taste is really dry and bitter with a sweet vanilla nut finish, lots of roast on this, a bit of alcohol on the finish... not really a dry stout, pretty average

Served on tap in the KC Airport at the Boulevard Pub. The appearance is a deep brown black with a medium cream head. The aromas are medium roast dry malts with some chocolate additions. A good roasted malts and grain in the flavor profile. Some oatmeal and a good but not too much dryness. The mouth is moderately creamy but this wasn’t on nitro so it lacks a bit for the style. Overall a solid brew.

It poured an almosty black color with a small head. The aroma was of roasted malts and coffee. The taste was somewhat bitter and slightly malty.

Bottle thanks to Andy. Almost forgot to rate this. Pours nearly black with a relatively large light tan head. Nose of mild roast, sweet malts. More chocolate and cola than coffee. Similar taste. Nothing special here, but a good lighter, easy-going stout.

Bottle; Pour is Dark Brown with a nice creamy head. The smoky feel was the surprising part of this brew on the nose - roasted coffee is present as well. Almost over the top nose for the style, honestly, because the flavor profile is muted in comparison, which you would expect. Light and watery on the finish - it is truly a beer that goes downhill from the get go.

Bottle. Damn, now that’s a distinct toffee/coffee flavor. Not too sure if it’s to my liking. Has the usual stout flavors...toffee/dark chocolate/etc. The thing about it is that they all stick out a little bit more than I usually expect...I guess I’d say it’s because it isn’t balanced very well. Dry, bitter finish. Not as good as I’d expect from Boulevard. Not bad by any means, though. 4.9% alcohol.

Has a bitter bite to it, definitely dry, its just compared to the other ales in the sampler pack, this doesn’t stand up, although it is a good example of a Dry Stout.

jake65 (3982) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a small ring of tan head. Aroma isn’t overly dry or roasty, but balanced with a malty sweetness and light coffee. Riding the fence between styles, really. Much more roastiness in the taste along with some bittersweet notes and a dry, lingering finish of roast and coffee. Body is just about right for the style. Not bad, it doesn’t stand out.
