A hazy deep red-brown beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of berries. The flavor is only slightly roasted combined with a light note of berries, and the body is thin. I find it boring, would like more power in the flavor.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, clear dark red mahogany with a small, off-white head. Aroma of hard roasted malt. Rather light-bodied with a high carbonation - too fizzy actually. Burned, malty accents with a rather light, bitter finish. Not really an impressive effort. 200606

Bottled, thanks beerhandy! Black, small head. Fairly sweet with lots of coffee and some molasses. Clean, fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

Sample from draft, courtesy of staff at Sickies, thanks! Dark brown, looks like a Guinness. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is caffe au lait. Nice.

bhensonb (14986) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. BB 05/08/08. But its bottle conditioned, so thats not likely critical. Poured nice and black with a good tan head. Aroma of dark roasted/toasted malt. Medium body with somewhat frothy carbonation. Flavor is dark toasted malt with some hints of smoke. More than hints. Might qualify as a rauchbier. Finish is about the same. Its a good refreshing stout with a smokey bent.

Tmoney99 (14292) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate smoky roasted malt aroma. Medium body with smooth dry texture. Medium roasted bitter flavor with a light sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Looks just like a Guinness. Nominal roasty aroma, mild roasty flavor. Not too much to it -- overall, fairly disappointing.

djd07 (14082) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle as shown. Pours a very dark brown with a thick frothy tan head that diminishes rather quickly. The aroma is roasted malt and dark chocolate. Sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet roasted malt with a smooth dry finish. A good dry stout from Boulevard.
