COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is part of the smokestacked series. It is alright. It’s not in league with the Brett or Tank 7, but will suffice. Espresso aroma. Heavy, foamy head. Notes of chocolate and coffee. Caramel wash down. It’s ok. Nothing to brag about. Does not or does not sit at all with the smokestacked series. Nedds some fune tuning. Passable. I’m kinda dissapointed.

jbruner (2136) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to thebsmitty! Pours a bubbly copper brown from the cork and cage with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is fresh ground coffee and that’s about it, taste follows but a bit more complexity, hints of caramel and nuts. Thin and bubbly, lasting bitter finish. Good stuff.

Good, not great. Different from other coffee beers which are all stouts and porters. This one is thin and amber. Overcarbonated IMO. Base beer is subtle and mild, giving the whole beer a iced coffee like flavor. It's good and the coffee is strong, but I do wish there was more body and depth to this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour, white head. Flavors of coffee up front, hops, smooth oat flavors, spicy rye, hints of sweet sugary notes at the end. Pretty good stuff. I prefer the chocolate though.

1 pint 9.4 oz. bottle served a shaker- poured a turbid lightened black with shades of brown and maroon of color, solid three finger foamy and a heavy cream like consistency head formed and laced extremely well upon the vessel. Aroma of dirt, coffee, toffee, darkened molasses, and love- just put everything that you like in a glass and enjoy! Hits the mouth with a high medium body that is extremely wide, a mild in feel on the mouth but overly strong coffee is intertwined with the malt, which makes the malt hard to detect, middle has more of the same with a slight note of cream, finish is cloying, slightly bittering, and has a fine note of dark chocolate. Very nice, but I enjoyed the last one I had alot more. But it’s still very good!

750ml bottle. Aroma is quite full of roasty coffee, dominating the lighter notes of dark brown sugar, praline, mild cocoa and spice, and featuring some lightly herbal tinges as well. Initial pour is mostly clear dark amber in color, with a fine, slight, uneven, off-white head. Flavor profile is appropriately full of coffee character as well, with suggestions of milk chocolate, toffee, dried fruit, dark brown sugar sweetness and faint spice in the background, and a tinge of alcohol appearing late into the finish. Palate is active, lightly carbonated, gently acidic and warming, with a full body. Interesting collaborative effort, and I admit I was interested when I first learned about this beer and that it would not be a Stout or Porter as virtually all coffee beers tend to be, rather the base beer, with its multigrain malt bill, plays a supportive role, giving the coffee more or less free reign...I am not disappointed.
