4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a great stout so its a shame its so difficult to come by these days. My understanding is that its on tap a few places in KC, but otherwise its tough. Dry, black as night, with a very easily drinkable character.
Originally rated on 9/18/08. No. 6 out of the sampler 12 pack was a pretty good stout. Poured a coal black body mid sized tan head. Aroma and flavors of toasted malts and a little hint of nuts and toffee put in for good measure. Good lace left on glass, it went down smooth and creamy.

Soot, smoke, sweetness that gives way to tar. Very dark brown, lovely tan head. mintzmeet (458) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Delicious. Great for breakfast. Nice maltiness. Not toocreamy in texture, but creamy in taste. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Black, with a dense, tan head. Looks like nitro. Too excites to care about the aroma it tastes just like Guinness. If that’s what they were trying to do, they did one better because this one’s made right here in the greatest United States of America. The finish is a little roastier. Yuup! ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
October 7, 2013 - on tap at Boulevard airport location. Dark brown pour with nice long lasting head. Aroma and taste that reminded me of guinness, but a bit more coffee flavor. Smooth and creamy palate, but a touch thin.

Recent I visit city of Kansas with much barbeque and jazz. I visit local Boulevards brew factory for tour, but they tell me is sold out. After much dissapoint, I join a grp of festive ppl for taste experience and nice lady pour me many drink fresh from factory. I like this dry stout, it look like sweet choco drink and taste of dark spl brew similar to guinness or other delicious brew. After drinking many beers I exit and join next grp for second round of beer drinking and fun. DiarmaidBHK (6143) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Draft at Sickie’s Burgers. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing in the glass. Has a slight roasted malt note on the nose and tongue. Finishes dry. It’s competent but not awe inspiring. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Draft: Poured a deep thick black with a nice creamy beige/light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is nice bold roasted malts, light coffee smoke. Finish was dry and inviting. beastiefan2k (4180) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Drank this beer a lot over my years in Kansas, finally ticking it. Shaker pour on nitro at Pachamama’s in Lawrence. Pours the traditional nitro way, thick head at the end. Aroma is dark and wet roast. Flavor is similar with light coffee, stale dark malts, and a watery malt backbone. Man, I hate nitro. tylermgaddis (16) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Was expecting a bit more body than I got. Had it on nitro after the brewery tour. Poured a nice black, with a caramel and eggshell head. Smelled like coffee and chocolate. Light and roasty in its taste. Light body, but smooth (attribute that to the nitro). Pretty average, but still good.
