Irish Ale ~ Boulevard Brewing

Appearance: clear garnets and ambers under an off-white head – solid collar and decent blanket. Swirls creamy, no lace.

Nose: candied sugars, maraschino cherries. Taffy toffee crunch bars. Pineapple. Figs and dates. Raw brown sugar granules, natural sugar, and cinnamon sticks.

Palate: chocolate and cinnamon sticks in the back. Dry finis with melba toast, pumpernickel sticks, apple skins, and tobacco. Hard hit of sweet maraschino cherries in the middle. Cooked brown sugar, cane sugar, and toffee crunchies. Dried leaves, twigs, and sticks. Figs and dates along the sides. Apple skins. Never too sweet or cloying, crisp and clean.

Final Thoughts: very tasty and intriguing and I liked it. Far more complexity than I was expecting, though the chocolate was an unexpected addition. A solid offering from Boulevard Brewing.
