OzarkElmo (329) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2010
From bottle to tulip. Aroma of cheap beer ingredients. The color, taste and finish was much better. Just goes to prove in life - sometimes you have to be patient. But, with that said, I would not purchase again. If I want the style (rarely) I will have Guinness Extra Stout. As cheap or cheaper, and much better even if brewed in Canada.

Draft at the boulevard brewpub in K. C. Airport. Atone of strong roast and a little cocoa. Flavor full of roast, also. Nice sessionable stout.

Kands (40) - Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Boulevard Boulevard Dry Stout -- 3/4/2008 from 12 oz. bottle . . . Aroma: Bitter-sweet; Roasted malts; Coffee; Chocolate; Some nuttiness. Appearance: Opaque; Very deep brown color; Medium, tan head with good retention; Some lacing. Taste: Mildly bitter; Malty sweetness; Coffee; Bitter chocolate. Palate: Medium body; Mild carbonation; Overall dry feel; Nice, bitter finish. Overall: We liked this. It was, indeed, dry -- but the bitterness was never harsh and was nicely balanced. Not one we’d drink often, but we would buy again.

blankboy (7860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown with an average size frothy beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, light green hops and a hint of peat or smoke. Dry flavour of roasted malt along with some chocolate, coffee and a slightly roasty dry finish. Average bodied. Nothing great, just a pretty good Stout.

3.6
ketchepillar (1208) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 29, 2009
A very solid Dry Stout. Balance of flaked barley and roasted barley is right where it should be. It does seem a little bit harsher than it should be, which could be just because the carbonation is too high or perhaps a water issue.

3.2
FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown nearly black with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, lots of sweet nuts and chocolate, both bitter and sweet. Flavor starts with a lot of creamy malted milk ball sweetness and then is quickly hit hard by coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. Finishes dry and straightforwardly bitter. Medium body and a soft carbonation. A decent dry stout, pretty bitter

3.2
garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 19, 2009
Shared by HogTownHarry with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Cola black with quickly dissipating yellow head. Aroma: Light spice, coffee, smoke with a light creaminess too. Flavour: Thin body, toasty, smoke, lots of peat and a nice dry finish. Not bad.

3.4
HogTownHarry (7084) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle ( 12oz ). Shared with blankboy and garthicus, via trade with mreusch. Deep clear ruby with an average mottled tan frothy head. Roasty, lactic aroma, nutty, slightly sweet, quite pleasing. Taste follows, more of a dry sweet stout - average slick body, mild carbonation, slightly burnt in the aftertaste. I liked it - and it’s been in my fridge for a year and a half too!

ljstephenson (250) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Very dark mahogany pour with a thinning off-white head. Aroma is strong with roasted mal and some fruit. Flavor is roasted with some berries, but a thin, almost watery mouthfeel. Finishes light and somewhat bitter. Left a bit to be desired.
