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.

Dark amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is bitterness of the roasted coffee. Sweetness in the aftertaste, but the coffee is upfront. The sweetness seems to grow as you drink it making it tough to finish the bottle.

Shared at CarterFest 2013, thanks gregwilsonstl! Tall corked bottle in their Smokestack series, it poured a hazy reddish copper colour with HUGE creamy, billowy beige foam, everlasting with nice Belgian lace. Beautiful appearance. A rare coffee beer which isn’t a stout, cool! My kinda beer to begin with--a multi-grain Belgian farmhouse kinda thing--grassy, peppery, beady, tea-like tannins. Tart, almost sour acidity enhanced by the delicious coffee notes. Complex, layer after layer of unique and harmonious flavours. Truly delicious.

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.

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.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a large beige head. Aroma: coffee, green chili, cocoa, licorice, light roast. Taste: malty, milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee beans, dark fruit, candy. Quite full-bodied. The coffee works really well.

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.
