Boulevard Imperial Stout

Boulevard's newest Smokestack beer is out and in some stores. You may have to do some searching/calling around to find some this weekend but by next week every liquor store should have a case or so. Oregon Amy bought out Royal Liquors on State Line and is reporting that Gomer's in midtown didn't have any yet (but Gomer's midtown did just locate 5 cases of Saison-Brett that I don't think they will still have on Monday).

Boulevard gave Wes and I (and every other beer blogger in town) a bottle of this stout last year so I have tasted it and like it. Amy has a review and she says it is her favorite of the Boulevard lineup of beers. Now's the time to stock up.

As we always do around here, give us a shout out where you found some, how much is left and how much you paid.

  1. The Lukas on 135th & State has it and plenty. I bought 2, and they still had about 12 on the shelf.

  2. Yep, I called earlier & they said they had plenty. I paid $12.99 at Royal, which is consistent with what I've paid for the others in the Special series. I didn't ask what their price was at Lukas but I'd expect it to be in the neighborhood....?

  3. Berbiglia's had some in midtown. I'm hoping to enjoy during the games tomorrow and write about it Monday. Of course, how much I enjoy it depends on if the Cards cover but that's a different story.

  4. I picked up a couple bottles of it and Saison-Brett at the Gomer's in Parkville. There were at least 6 or so bottles of the Imperial Stout on the shelf after the two I grabbed.

  5. Berbiglia at 75th and State Line has them for $13. I decided to go with a 6er of Irish instead.

    Speaking of Irish, it's on tap in quite a few places. Blue Grotto in Brookside has it.

  7. I didn't like it as much as BBQ or Saison, but maybe it's just not my style. I wrote about it on kchophead.com. I enjoyed mine over a delicious, toasted peanut butter and jelly. :)

  9. When I went to Red X on Friday night, they had jack shit, especially in the way of the Smokestack series. 2/3 of the Smokestack display rack was empty, except for some normal Saison bottles. They must have been flying off of the shelf with that awesome pricing.

  10. Great. I went to Lukas on 119th and Metcalf yesterday (Sunday) and they told me it didn't come out until March. I'm going to Gomer's tomorrow to make this right.

    On an unrelated note, my verification word to leave this comment is "guymen". As in, "Sorry, ladies...my chastity has been compromised. I have physical proof."

  11. Any idea what the carbo load of this stout is? For those of us fighting the bulge, there is unfortunately no more aptly named beer.

  12. Don't know the carbs, but this beer will be very, very high in calories--well over 300 per pint, I'm sure. (Sorry if that ruined anything for anybody, but it's typical of the imperial stout style).

    However, not all STOUTS will make you...well, stout. For example, Guinness is 125 calories per 12 oz. serving. That's only marginally more than a Michelob Ultra. Is there even a decision there?

  13. Bought the two remaining Imperial Stouts at the PruceChopper in Brookisde for $10.99, they rang up as "Saison Brett".
