Boulevard Brewing Co., Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest

Ding Points: 85.50 Pour: 70.00, Nose: 80.00, Palate: 90.00, Mouth: 90.00, Global: 90.00 Tasting Notes: Apparently this beer is brewed to celebrate one Bob Werkowitch, Master Brewer, and his graduation from the US Brewer's Academy in 1947. Nice. Beautiful clarity with a distinctly orange hue, Bob's '47 looks like a classic Oktoberfest in the glass. 20 oz pint at Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA, USA. To be honest, the head is a little disappointing and there is minimal lace, but both the hue and...

Beer Review: Boulevard Brewing Company, Rye-On-Rye 2012

Ding Points: 77.50 Pour: 70.00, Nose: 80.00, Palate: 80.00, Mouth: 70.00, Global: 80.00 Tasting Notes: More thanks go out to @lnashsig. 2012 vintage, bottle number 20081, Batch 2012-2, Best By: 02-2014. 33% ale, 67% ale aged in rye whiskey barrels.

Rich looking, brown pour that is quite attractive. Some hazy, murkiness...

Beer Review: Boulevard Brewing Co., Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

Ding Points: 95.50 Pour: 100.00, Nose: 90.00, Palate: 100.00, Mouth: 90.00, Global: 90.00 Tasting Notes: Part of the usually tremendous, Smokestack Series, the beer pours with a magnificent, bright, golden orange marmalade colored pour with a huge head in the Duvel chalice. Looks wonderful. Smudged dot-matrix 'Best By' date on the neck is unreadable, along with another illegible number - perhaps a batch number. Nose immediately gives away lots of spicy, tropical fruit along with some very...

Beer Review: Boulevard Brewing Co., Long Strange Tripel

Ding Points: 92.50 Pour: 90, Nose: 80, Palate: 100, Mouth: 90, Global: 90 Tasting Notes: A beer, which on the one or two other occasions I have drunk it, I enjoyed it so much that I never got around to reviewing. I just didn't want the experience of drinking it to be interrupted by note taking. Boulevard really has made some excellent beers in the Smokestack series over the years. This time I planned the review. The bottle was purchased from Binny's in Clybourn, Chicago, IL along with a few...
