Boulevard Imperial Stout 2013
Boulevard Imperial Stout is an American Double/Imperial Stout, this review is for the 2013 vintage. The beer is made up of 60% ale, 40% ale aged in bourbon barrels. The rich and roasty smell of this beer tells me I am in for a treat. A lot of good flavors in this stout: Some roast, chocolate, good (but not overbearing) bourbon, a touch of coffee, hints of dark fruit and rye, maybe a bit of molasses as it warms. The yeast is a touch fruity, not sure if it’s a Belgian strain, but that would fall in line with what a lot of what Boulevard brews. These guys never disappoint, and in this case they once again exceed my expectations.
