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.

HoppyBudgie (812) - 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 (3414) - 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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 12, 2013
750ml bottle. Clear deep amber with a long lasting, foamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, malt and light berries. Flavor is robust coffee, light tartness, sweet malt and no alcohol taste. Medium body with a frothy mouth feel. This one is interesting, good coffee character, an odd tartness but hides the ABV very well.

Tap @ Fresh Craft, Denver. Pours a medium cloudy, brown beer with a thin layer of off white head on top. Aroma is coffee, caramel, faint vanilla in there as well. Flavour is medium sweet, big coffee and caramel character in there. Lovely, silky smooth mouthfeel. Very nice!

magsinva (951) - Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle - I might have let this one age too long, because when I had it this weekend it smelled like coffee and brown sugar malt, but the taste was a bit blah. Have to try again.
