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.

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!

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.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint 9.4 oz. bottle served a shaker- poured a turbid lightened black with shades of brown and maroon of color, solid three finger foamy and a heavy cream like consistency head formed and laced extremely well upon the vessel. Aroma of dirt, coffee, toffee, darkened molasses, and love- just put everything that you like in a glass and enjoy! Hits the mouth with a high medium body that is extremely wide, a mild in feel on the mouth but overly strong coffee is intertwined with the malt, which makes the malt hard to detect, middle has more of the same with a slight note of cream, finish is cloying, slightly bittering, and has a fine note of dark chocolate. Very nice, but I enjoyed the last one I had alot more. But it’s still very good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Yespr. Pours quite hazy amber with a lasting small frothy beige head. Aroma is mild coffee, caramel, bread, herbs and toasted malt. Taste is moderate sweet and light+ bitter. Body is medium, texture is light syrupy, carbonation is is moderate+, Finishes sweet with caramel and mild coffee, The coffee is nicely downplayed but I’d prefer less carbonation and sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Pours deep reddish-brown with a huge beige head that quickly fades but doesn’t disappear completely. Aroma is potent earthy coffee blended with a lot of chocolate. Taste is similar with earthy coffee followed by slight spice, although the earthiness ramps up and dominates as it warms. Really long finish, as is usual with coffee beers, medium-thin mouthfeel, smooth. Overall, a solid coffee beer that is much better done than most I encounter. Another winner from Boulevard.
