First of a series of four "Smokestack Ales[*1] " from the beloved Boulevard Brewing Company right here in ol' Kansas City Mo.
It's . . . yummy.
Its color was a robust reddish-brown in the wine glass from which I partook of its charms. It has a bit of a thick feel in the mouth, not at all bad. A bit creamy, actually. It has not a harsh taste in it at all, being a mellow, well-behaved ale--actually, a bit sweet. The 750 ml bottle is not nearly enough but at the same time, probably quite enough for an evening's beverage enjoyment. Trust me, you don't want more than one bottle, unless you're with friends. Whoo, it's starting to take it's effect on ol' filbert here. Very nice. I'll be going to bed soon.
I'll give it a full 10/10. Very, very good. If you see it in a liquor/package store near you, snap it up. Good stuff, Maynard.
