3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown pour with tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, prunes, toast. Flavor has notes of mildly bitter chocolate, dark fruit, and toffee.
Black pout thin tan head. Aroma is whiskey, vanilla, chocolate plum. Taste follows nose. Little sweet for me. Enjoyable though. jw0406 (1305) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2017
12 oz bottle pours a black color with a small light brown head. Aromas of whiskey, vanilla, caramel, roasted malt. Full bodied, smooth, sneaky alcohol, a very good beer. Richnthick (5) - Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2017 does not count
Bought a 12oz. bottle on recommendation for a whopping $3. Very happily surprised by this beer. Not as strong a whiskey flavor as the nose suggested. sauvintipper (6) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2017 does not count
12oz bottled 8/18/2017 11.8% ABV 32 IBU poured into pilsner glass pitch black like a soda with carbonation, but no head or lacing whatsoever.
vanilla cream soda and whiskey over chocolate and espresso, extremely alcoholic with burn and buzz, not noticing any bitter hops. Little disappointed on my first bottle, but perhaps a bit over-hyped and my expectation were too high. I like whiskey and and enjoyed the beer, but I could maybe add a little whiskey to a cheaper stout with similar results.
Note: I will stick with my initial review even though bottles in this 4-pak were inconsistent, one had no head or lace, two had small head which dissipated quickly leaving small amount of lacing and one had a nice 2-finger head which took nearly half hour to dissipate leaving plenty of lacing on the glass. All were poured the same, straight from the fridge down the center of a pilsner glass. The other three beers were not as much cream soda as initial review, but otherwise similar in taste. Have never experienced such inconsistency in a pack of beer before. jmjordan (5) - - NOV 10, 2017 does not count
I've had several different beers from Boulevard Brewing Company. This Whiskey Barrel Stout is one of my new favorites. It is not what I would drink for all occasions, just when I feel like something to savor.
