750 ml. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a caramel color with quite a bit of protein sediment. Aroma of whiskey, wood, and a slight sour quality. Flavors of caramel, whiskey, and wood. A slight burn on the finish but enough sweetness to balance it. Very unique. An absolutely fantastic beer.
It pours amber with some orange hues. The head is a very light brown. Head retention is low. The first aroma impression is that of high levels of rye and rye whiskey. There are also aromas of cherries and low bread in the background. There are very low hints of other dark fruits that are distinguishable. The flavors are high in rye with a good dose of whiskey and alcohol. There are cherries that are in the background with maybe a small hint of blackberries. There is also a bit of spice. It has a full body with smooth alcohol warming. It is moderately bitter with a hint of sweetness in the finish. Overall, this beer is excellent especially if you love rye. benpickens (552) - Camarillo, California, USA - MAR 12, 2018
Pours copper bronze with a billowy head and huge boozy, oaky, vanilla, bourbon nose; nice smooth palate with a edgy alcoholic burn to the finish. Nice. Voodoo (729) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2018
Pours a clear dark amber with a slight off white head which is gone quickly......aroma of rum, brown sugar.....taste is booze, then booze, then dried figs, slight rye grain spiciness near the end, quite dry with mild bitterness. Interesting item, I may have another as I'm not driving. Kleg (494) - The Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2018
Draft sample. 12.0 ABV and 47 IBU. Clear amber color with a small off-white head. Nose of heavy whiskey. Taste follows the nose. Way too strong alcohol and whiskey flavors. No beer flavor here. At least it's smooth. Tick. katrinaez (2454) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 Thick rye aroma, strong bready taste with a bitter kick, lots of cherry cedars after notes. if you like rye beers, you'll like this one, bottle.

12oz bottle from Three Cellars in the Falls. When in St Louis, why not try a Boulevard ... even if bought out of state. Unclear amber brown pour with a beige head leaving little lace. Aroma has sweet and rye malts, a touch of fruit and booze. Taste is of sweet whiskey, rye malt with some toffee. Medium to full bodied, the blend is fine, and this is boozy. Finishes sweet with whiskey. The whiskey is fine, but a bit one dimensional. Would have liked a stronger rye graininess in the mix. 13.5 BlackBeerPG (1041) - Darien, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2018
Taste: smooth smoked rye, woody, slight whiskey booze bite. Wood barrel nose. Brown hue, slight opaque, tan head with rings of lace. Medium/full body. I had the 2018 Vintage and it sneaks up on you. tapefuzz (1021) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2018
12oz bottle. Pours copper-caramel with a small beige head. Aroma is rye spice, boozy whiskey, caramel, brown sugar, light oak, and just a tiny bit of apple. Taste is fruit (sort of like a less sweet fig), whiskey, spice, caramel, toast, some oak, a tiny bit of toffee, a little brown sugar, and light red wine notes (dessert wine). Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Creamy and slightly sticky mouthfeel. You can feel the alcohol, but for 12% it isn't overly boozy. Sort of like an American barley wine version of De Struise Tsjeeses. shawnmurphy (736) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2018
On tap at The Ginger Man, the famed beer shrine, in New York City. Pours clear copper-amber with a trace of creamy off-white head and lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, pepper, plums and peaches.. Flavor: light brown sugar, butterscotch, wood, pepper, toasted rye bread with maple butter. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, slightly creamy, lingering warming booziness.

On tap at HomebrewStuff. Cloudy medium brown with a slight reddish hue. Thin but dense and lasting beige head and even sheets of lacing. Toasted malt dark caramel flavors. Some of the sharp rye bite. Some mellow brown sugar sweetness as well. Tastes like it’s been sitting in a cool basement for a long time.
