3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of coffee and malt. Pours a translucent brown with garnet highlights, a very foamy none-lasting khaki head and little to no lacing. The taste is a nice combination bitter and sweet. Coffee flavor is fore most with sweet malts finishing the colabration. There is alao a bit of graininess in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very refreshing change from the usual coffee stouts and porters. Well done, Boulevard!

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear reddish coffee color with a thin, but respectable white head. Coffee and smoke aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, coffee, molasses and a vinous character as well. Exceptional.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Murky brown color after a frothy pour. Really nice coffee notes in aroma, carrying to the flavor. Interestingly sweet, and a nice malt base. Coffee flavor is quite fresh and lingers beautifully. This is good, but unfortunately does not hide its ABV well, and indeed what also lingers is a bit of alcohol burn. If they ratcheted this from from 9.3 to 7.5 or so, this would be a coffee ale to beat!

Midwest Brewers Fest. Poured reddish brown with cream head. Pleasant aroma of ground coffee. Similar smooth coffee taste. I dig.

Bottle. As someone who loves coffee and roast my own beans I find most coffee beers disappointing other than as an added flavor to a stout or porter. This is not the case with this beer. Aroma of huge coffee as expected, to the extent that is about all I get. A light brown pour with a small white head. Flavor is big coffee, with the malt taking a backseat but playing nicely. Well disguised alcohol, with just enough carbonation to keep it for leaning sweet or being too much. Thoroughly enjoyed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch 2013-4, best by 10-2013. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with about an inch and a half tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Not surprisingly, the aroma is mostly coffee. There’s also roasted malt, nuts, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate noticeable. It tastes like coffee, roasted malt, dark bread, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and surprisingly a bit of citrus. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a little creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee brew, definitely worth a try. $12.99 a bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, batch 2013-3, best by 10-2013. Pours copper amber with a huge pillowy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is strong roast coffee with some sweet lactic chocolate.
The flavor is some sweet malt with a lot of roast coffee and some acidic bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, pretty one-dimensional, but a nice coffee beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, color of cream soda, off-white head and ok lace. Strong coffee aroma, with hints of caramel and roastiness. Flavor is similar, with big coffee flavor up front, some cashew, oak and vanilla. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy yet thin mouthfeel, and the coffee lingers in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Batch 2 bottle. Poured into a goblet. Surprisingly light brown pour with a huge head. Lots of carbonation on this one. Worried about possible infection here. Slightly lactic all around. But lots of vanilla, creamy coffee, light chocolate. Sweet but dry. Won’t be surprised to see reports of these gushing given a little more time on the shelf.
