Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s special offering for the holiday season. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the "spiciness" of freshly harvested "wet" Chinook hops.

Didn’t know anything about this beer, and i was pleasantly surprised. 1.5 finger head, decent retention, decent lacing. Aroma is a bit weak, but pretty good. Hoppy with some caramel, some brown ale type malt notes. Hops are pretty strong in the taste but again its like the aroma. Some brown ale & psuedo-nuttiness comes through more in the finish.

dark brown with some hints of red. I don’t smell anything but my cohort says if smells like hop. Medium to light mouth feel with some brown malts and spices with a long icky hop aftertaste.

Pours a ruby amber color with a nice full off white head that diminishes yet stays. Aroma is nutmeg and hop flowers. Taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, maple syrup, and roasted malt. A fine holiday season beer!

Bottled (thanks heemer77!). Amber colour, mediumsized beuige creamy head. Aroma is hops, malts, some grass and caramel. Flavour is really flowery hops with much grass. Also some burnt sugary hints in the flavour.

Ruby dark color, off-white small steady head. Bready hoppy, a bit sweetish aroma. Nutty hoppy, rye-bread hoppy, also a bit sweetish with caramelly notes. Mix of brown ale and IPA.

RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Had this beer on 6/23/2000. Aroma is like a wine with roasted malt in it. Color is a hazy brown with light carbonation and head. Taste is nutty, woody, and a bit roasted. Starting with medium body that goes down with a nutty flavor. Finish is a mildly roasted malt flavor that has a wood like flavor in it and is followed up by a slight winey tang.

This one has alot of nuts and alot of spices, its almost like a nut brown with some ginger or something in it. Interesting but understated. Not really a session beer as id only have one in a sitting due ot the weird spices.

Gabemik (46) - Joplin, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2007
Pours a very deep red. Not much light can get through this brew. Aroma is faint, almost nothing. There’s a ghost of the chinooks and some spice. The flavor is a bit nutty, a bit hoppy, some carbination, and a hint of alchohol.

mrdeath5493 (113) - Arkansas, USA - APR 2, 2007
Brown and clear. Not much head. Smells nice, with spicy and sweet notes. Taste though is too spicy for me. A definite blend of many flavors, but with no balance.
