Boulevard Dark Truth Stout

Tonight I’m trying out an imperial stout from Boulevard Brewing in Missouri, called Dark Truth Stout.  It pours an inky black, and has a super dense long-lasting head.  The scents are of chocolate and coffee, with a slight astringency.  The middle is rich and creamy, with a heavy, milky body, and notes of chocolate and orange and bitter roasted malt.  The finish is sticky and lingers on the back of the tongue, and gives only the slightest hint of the alcohol that’s present in fairly substantial quantities.  (9.7% ABV)  This is a beautiful heavy beer, just right for a chilly fall night after dinner.

I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
