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.

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.

Thanks to my buddy Steven Katz for grabbing this for me. Pours a slightly murky & particulate brown with 3 finger head that leaves little lacing. Coffee aroma meets you right up front with some roasty malt and a little caramel. Woody. Grassy hops. Starts initially moderately sweet, but then quickly tapers to a moderate bitterniss. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Long coffee finish.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a slight amount of off white head. Aroma of intense coffee and hints of spices. Taste of chocolates and chiles.

Super interesting like drinking good coffee grounds soaked in a brown ale.. well thats probably what it is but its enjoyable. Tons of coffee and a subtle malty base beer.

Hopswagger (197) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2013
P: Pours a dark brown with red tint and a massive crown of dense cappuccino froth. S: Robust roasted coffee, mocha, resinous barley, chocolate malt balls, nutmeg, soy sauce and sweet booze. T/M: Roasted coffee drizzled with amaretto syrup, smoldered wood, chocolate covered espresso beans, non dairy creamer and a big booze presence. Taste is rough and artificial. Moderate carbonation in a creamy body and dry spicy barley laced with creamer sweetness. O: I love the smokestack series but this is the only one I’ve had that missed the mark. This tastes similar to an iced amaretto coffee with too much non dairy creamer. It’s coffee forward for sure but wasn’t a fan of the completed concoction.

750 ml. Good smell, amber appearance when you pour. Starts out with a roasted coffee taste, bitter and then got a little sweet on the finish. Overall, good price for the beer.

Scopey (6242) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle from Habershams, Savannah. It pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is big on the coffee, chocolate, earth and wood. The taste is coffee, earth, some acidity, wood and cocoa with sweet coffee on the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty one-dimensional really. Couldn’t drink more than a glass of this.
