Oh yeah, that’s good stuff. Gorgeous pour, tawny, red gold in the glass with a substantial lingering head. Smoky, assertive rye ale with a slight boozy rye whiskey presence on the palate. Read the product description, read the reviews, this is a can’t miss brew. JLLSU (242) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
750---->Boulevard stemmed glass. Pours a light copper with a frothy two finger head that fades quickly leaving moderate lace. Aroma is bourbon and vanilla. Tastes of heavy bourbon, spicy rye, and sweet grapes. Nice lively palate with plenty carbonation. Not a bad beer, just a little too heavy on the whiskey front for my likings. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2013

Pours a murky brown with small lacing. Sweet boozy rue. With caramel. Some tart dark fruit. Malty. Moderate carbonation. Clean mouthfeel. Did I mention boozy? Long malty finish. luttonm (6981) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Deep brown, pretty pour. Rich alcohol, rye grain. Deep breadyness, grape juice. deep yeasty-brown twist, some funk down there somewhere. Big, but balanced alcohol. Deep rye, black bread. Big barreled beer and very interesting.

Pours caramel in color with a light fizzy head. Whiskey, vinegar, pepper, spiciness, charcoal are all in the nose. Sweet and spicy malt character. Great, big mouth feel with high carbonation. Very rich and bold. Notes of bourbon, caramel, peppercorn. Finishes like a whiskey. I was shocked at the beautiful whiskey character. I loved this. A wonderful beer to share with friends at dinner. jkbachman (181) - - DEC 31, 2012
Heavy bourbon smell upfront. Distinct rye flavor takes front stage to the bourbon flavor. Absolutely delicious beer.

Bottle poured into snifter. Appealing light amber color, clear, huge frothy head. Aroma is definitely highlighted by spicy rye whiskey with supporting notes of burnt caramel malt, booze, and a hint of vanilla. Very nice. Taste is wonderful. What starts slightly bland and uneventful quickly changes gear to a beautifully complex flavor. More spicy rye, warming alcohol, grain, small touches of vanilla and oak, and maybe even a touch of citrus hops?? Finish is very boozy, sticky, and awesome. My only 2 minor gripes are a slight metallic note in the taste and I wish the body was a tad more full. But overall, this is a great grainy rye treat from Boulevard!
