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.

illidurit (2115) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle at Beercraft tasting in Rohnert Park. Smooth tart coffee aroma, fruity and vanilla-y, sweet lactose, cappuccino. Definitely tends toward the sugary milky coffee style than the straight espresso side.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2013
750 ml bottle via local STL trade. Pours a deep coffee brown with a massive rocky beige head that takes a while to settle into a small ring. Aroma of coffee, cocoa beans, earth, dark fruits, earth, nuts, and toast. Flavor of old cold coffee, nuts, toast, dark fruits, rye spice, and earth. Light-bodied, with minimal carbonation and a palate that starts smooth and dries up late. Pretty odd beer, maybe with a slight carbonation issue. Not bad, though.

Flavors are of coffee, raisins, estery, fudge, coconut, medium nutty and toasty malt. Slightly spicy. Very very lively carbonation that seems out of place, dry, low body, almost a bit acidic.

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Mahogony brown with a good sized tan head. Nose carries a big espresso burst, coffee cake, sugars. Taste comprises coffee cake, tirimasu, brown bread, biscuit, dark caramel, demerara sugar. Medium to full body with fine carbonation, sweet finish. Decent stuff, a little over sweet but I’m a sucker for coffee infused beers! Alcohol is well integrated.

kevinator (847) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Good but not as good as I hoped. The aroma was definitely of coffee but with a strong malty presence. The color is like iced tea with a small head. The palate is the best part with a heavy feel that comes across as creamy. Lower level carbonation. Anything more would detract. The coffee flavor doesn’t translate as much as I would have expected because there was a lot more going on. Heavy malts with a sweetness. The rye added a little spice and it finished with a boozy tang. Good but not what I expected. A little acidic.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a large tan head, little retention/lace. Aroma of green coffee, chocolate, roast, vanilla. Taste is green coffee, bell pepper, chocolate, roast. Palate is a bit thin, slick, light bitter finish.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pour reddish brown with a modest tan head and a coffee aroma. There is a roasty rye flavor with a carbonated and bitter coffee finish. Very complex.

750 c&c from Bine and Vine. Pours darkly ruddy with a fizzy beige/tan head. Aroma is plain coffee. Med body. Flavor is smooth, dry coffee. There is malt an a little mix of indiscernible flavors, but primarily coffee. Well done.
