    I like this. It has enough hoppiness to taste good without wrecking my stomach.

    This reminds me, I saw a bunch of that Boulevard Chocolate Ale the other day. I should give it a try soon. I think T had it a few days back, anyone else?

    That’s one I’m keeping my eyes peeled for. I’ve never had it. T says it’s good so that’s all I need to know. :cheers:

    Thanks Keith, it sounds like I'll be getting some tomorrow. I just picked up 2 more BCS tonight, they still have about five 4 packs of the chocolate ale. :cheers:

    I headed back out and grabbed a 4 pack. Just in case this Coronavirus takes off over night and I couldn't make it to the store. I have to say T was right by a lot! These are unreal! Even at room temp. :cheers:

    Awesome, Maine! Glad to hear you like the stuff. Now I’m even more determined to find some. :cheers:

    Wollaston Wine and Spirits is where I found it. It's about 15-20 mins south of the city, right off 93. :cheers:

    If I recall the chocolate isn’t strong as you can see in Maine’s pic, it’s more of the combination of flavors.

    I was expecting a thick/rich chocolate. So my first was disappointing.

    My second was very enjoyable once I knew what to expect and could appreciate the flavors.

    Cheers, Keith. :cheers:

    I think I am going to Ayer, MA.

    I will confirm Monday.

    I have been there a couple times but they all run together.

    I do remember the Hampton Inn across the street from a mall with a good steakhouse and a Cabbalas or similar.

    Some details are important....

    It really is great! Very smooth and drinkable for 8.7%. I'm about to try a cold one in about 5 minutes but I think it will be about the same as store temp.

    Agreed, I was expecting thicker and darker myself. The chocolate is there but the beer flavor is excellent too. :cheers:
    Edited to add that the vanilla flavor is there too, but subtle to me. I'm ok with this, I never knew that gal T had back in high school. ;)

    I've only been there once or twice over the years. That's a good hour away from the city but I'm sure if you look around a little you'll find some, or maybe even a nice stash of BCS.
