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.

hazy chestnut, thin cream head. Light almond and coffee hints, sugary but balanced. Sweet flavor, more coffee and stinging sugar. Overly sweet but moderate balance.

portableparty (1963) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2013
750 ml Smokestack series bottle. Pours brown cola color with a very large foamy frothy khaki head that last, but eventually settles to a film. Aroma has roasted malt some molasses and dark fruit with the coffee fighting through. Taste has nice strong black coffee roasted malt some sweet cream and chocolate subtle bitterness and spice with alcohol on the finish. Palate is thin fizzy and warming. Really taken by surprise with this one, really nice!

Holmen1 (2866) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Ivar): en ren, mild og innsmigrende kaffearoma stiger opp fra et flott og tett skum (som dessverre ikke varer). I smaken sniker bæraktige og søte tropiske frukter seg inn. Totalbildet er enkelt, men dog so smooth and drinkable.

HoppyBudgie (757) - SOLA, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Hazy brown with small head. Aroma of rich coffee, caramel, scotch and toffee, sweet malt and bread. Detect a sourness in coffe or PH? Flavour is coffee, toffee, dough and sweet malts. Also get the sourness here. Special with a pale beer with coffee. Rerate 17. Aug 2014. Same date on this bottles. More sweet dried malt now and oxidised coffeeflavour is gone. Now more cocoacoffee feel.

theisti (3321) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
750 ml cork and caged bottle purchased at Metcalf Discount Liquors in Overland Park, Kansas. Bottled 2013-3 best before 2013-10. The pour is a hazed brown copper ruby with a three inch crackly light tan head. The aroma is soft roasted malt, nice dark chocolate element and a gentle earthiness. Doesn’t really jump out as a “coffee” nose, though it is quite pleasant. The taste picks up on roast coffee, bit of char grain, the soft gentle earthiness of the nose, sweet chocolate and caramel. The coffee character really comes out in the longish finish, along with some sharp bitterness. The palate is medium bodied, active bottle conditioned carbonation and the earthy, mineral coffee dry finish. Nice use of coffee in a beer.
