Neighbors for nearly twenty years, Boulevard Brewing Company and The Roasterie share a passion for making extraordinary beverages. In Coffee Ale, our two celebrated brewing traditions come together in a long-awaited collaboration. Ethiopian Sidamo from Africa’s Great Rift Valley has been carefully blended with rye, oats, and malted barley, and spiced with Perle and Styrian Golding hops. The delightfully fragrant beer presents a glowing, tawny-amber hue. The clean, crisp acidity of the air-roasted coffee mingles with malt on the palate, lingering faintly in a subtly sweet finish.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2015
(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of fresh coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, brown bread, hints of smoke and tar. Malty, slightly smoky taste with lots of coffee, dark bread, liquorice, chocolate, some orange peel and a gentle, slightly earthy, bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Tasty and quite interesting, with lots of fresh coffee and alcohol well hidden. Very nice.

Jow (2906) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Uneccessary bomber pop late night from Greg w stl. Murky brown pour fine frothy beige head. Nose is fine coffee and dark fruits. First glass tasted kinda weird of off fruit and coffee. Subsequent glasses were more pleasant of better coffee, plums, light hops, some grains. Smooth enough. All righty then.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Backlogged rating: Plenty of coffee with a bit of walnut, mocha and bredy notes. Slight spicy hop notes. Lively and pretty crisp for a coffee ale but as expected a tad thin with the coffee. Good but got one note after a while.

StoreMy (29) - Nesttun, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Looks reddish brown i glas, with OK light brown head. Cold coffee, wood, cinema popcorn (diacetyl) in nose. Kind of chocolateish popcorn. Aroma confirmed in taste, with buttery finish Worst of the Smoke Stack Series so far - earlier tastings of the series have been more than decent.
