3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Casa de Greg, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Holy fucken balls, the foam is out of control on this slut. No apparent sign of infection in the nose. Hazy brown appearance. Slight metallic, cola, caramel, a bit sweet, lightly roasted coffe aroma. A bit twangy, milk chocolate, mocha, light coffee, earthy, creamy flavor with a soft yeast presence. Pretty good but not as good as some of their releases.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml. thick tan colored head on a lightly hazed dark brown body. cold coffee nose with chocolate cookie and dark cracker malts and faint metallic notes that seem to diminish after a short time. rich, frothy and soft carbonation provides explosive uplift of a sweet, peppery and tantalizing roasted coffee beans with ample alcohol warmth, fullness and sweetness in the finish with mild to moderate roasted bean astringency and noble hop bitterness. a lovely texture, sure enough that’s something you can count on from Boulevard. I didn’t hesitate to buy but it took me a few days to come around to opening a 9% coffee beer, but here I sit enjoying the hell out of it. the coffee presentation is rich and flavorful and the body and carbonation are lush and satisfying. it’s a play of warming and sweet alcohol with a soil / wet grain / oat richness and vibrant carbonation. a novel beer executed well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to DedicatedToFun! Murky deep brown to mahogany pour. Thicker latte foam. Huge lacing. Nose is softer coffee latte, rye bread. Taste is biting, richer dark bread, whole wheat, and no green coffee. Overall pretty solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is cloudy dark amber, unfiltered.
Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (coffee, Oreo cookie), with a light note of strawberry.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, fluffy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Very solid brew...especially wrt the mouth experience: excellent balance and a nice fluffy mouthfeel. And where the heck is the alcohol? Over 9%??? Seriously, r u jokin or wat? 9% is like 6% to Boulevard, fine sum1 else to measure your ABV. The aroma doesn’t quite rise above "pleasant", but it is very much that...nice coffee character, especially.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, corked and baled. Pours a murky dark brown with a gigantic tan head that sticks around forever, once it finally settles down. Gorgeous big nutty coffee nose, smells like good coffee. Nice fresh gingerbread dark bread crust maltiness there too. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Rich dark earthiness, nuttiness, and gingerbread notes from the combination of malts and good coffee. Really a nicely integrated effort.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Big bright coffee aroma.   Pretty simple, coffee with a bit of creamer on the nose.   Sweet and roasty coffee on the tongue.   Hard to believe this is actually 9.3%!   Very simple, but very clean and tasty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of fresh coffee, a touch of creamer, with a background of lightly roasted malts.   Pure and simple a very good simple Coffee beer.   Not a Coffee infused beer, its just a Coffee beer pure and simple.   Nothing fancy, but very much a Coffee beer.   Strong, semi-sweet, with pale roastiness.   You want Coffee, get this one!
