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.

wxman (1575) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2013
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.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
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!

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bluejacket74 (1556) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
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. 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.

Beaver (1459) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2013
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.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a slight amount of off white head. Aroma of intense coffee and hints of spices. Taste of chocolates and chiles.

RedSox2004 (1443) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
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.
