Dark Truth Stout

  •  SRM Color : 40
  • Brewer: Boulevard Brewing Co.
  • Brewer's Description: This is a full bodied beer whose general characteristics include a black, almost opaque appearance with a rich chocolaty and moderatly fruity aroma. The flavor is has an intense roasted malt character, exhibiting elements of dark fruit, coffee and sweet chocolate. The hop character has a moderate, balancing bitterness.
  • Russ' rating: 8 of 10
  • With the brew: I drank this beer with some strong hard cheese, and some crusty bread.
  • Comments: This is a favorite of mine, it has a rich brooding flavor that is worthy of its name. The richness of the malt is balanced with the hops to present a flavor and aroma that is crisp and refreshing. Darker than most beers the pour was smooth and the head was creamy and thick. I recommend a taller than normal glass, and a sense of adventure.
