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 Africaís 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.

Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Mahogony brown with a good sized tan head. Nose carries a big espresso burst, coffee cake, sugars. Taste comprises coffee cake, tirimasu, brown bread, biscuit, dark caramel, demerara sugar. Medium to full body with fine carbonation, sweet finish. Decent stuff, a little over sweet but Iím a sucker for coffee infused beers! Alcohol is well integrated.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A big light beige head forms over an unclear brown body. The aroma has loads of delicious coffee, spicy hints and some roasted malts. Itís lightly warming on the palate, full-bodied and with a high but suitable carbonation level. Roasted flavor with light caramel and nutty notes, a decent hoppy bitterness and a nice coffee touch. The coffee not as dominant as in the flavor. A pleasant sweetness too. The finish is a bit too warming, else really pleasant, with bitterness, coffee and sweetness, as well as some caramel, dark chocolate and nuts. Not really sure about this one. Itís very tasteful and pleasant on one side. On the other side itís too warming and probably a bit too much, but hey, itís a beer I definitely wouldnít mind having again. 130815
