Clear and bright burntish orange color, thin sticky yellowed head, minimal spotty lacing.

Aroma is toffeeish, nutty, caramel dipped toasted edging; warming, clean, and soft with an overall sweet malt tone. Quite nice actually.

Taste is malty smooth, akin to becoming dopplebock-like but keeps a slight toastier edge and slight herbal hop backing to it. Mostly sweet with a light mixure of bready malts and caramel smoothness, lifting into some retracting toffee butter and nuts. Finish lends a bit of hoppy herbal grassy atop a slight roasty/toasty chewy malt.

Feel is silky smooth and malty thick, nearly full and buttery, not too cloying in sweetness but definately has a hangin' around-sticky thing to its character and body. A pleasant surprise as it slides right down. This is a keeper by the folks at Boulevard.
Drinkability high and easy going. And at 5% this is a super sessionable brew to behold. Too bad its a seasonal. Astonishingly good stuff!
