Year of New Beer: Restless Nights, Boulevard Brewing Co/Modern Times Beer (MO/CA)

Written By: Dion on 11/15/2019

Chocolate, coffee, nuts, and light bourbon take turns tripping the olfactory nerve. Hints of oak and vanilla as well. On the tongue, coffee and a lightly charred malt take center stage, with auxiliary notes of caramel, bread crust, and earthy hops. Trace amounts of dark fruit; likewise for the bourbon. Ultimately, I'm left wanting a bigger impact from the barrel. Still not a bad brew, especially for the price.
