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.

On tap bier thirty pours out brown ripped with a sand head. Heavy coffee aroma along with some brown sugar sweetness and rich malts. Taste is all coffee and sweetness.

Looks reddish brown i glas, with OK light brown head. Cold coffee, wood, cinema popcorn (diacetyl) in nose. Kind of chocolateish popcorn. Aroma confirmed in taste, with buttery finish Worst of the Smoke Stack Series so far - earlier tastings of the series have been more than decent.

"Iím curious what this large but easy drinking ale would be like without the coffee. You get the impression itíd be good, but itís so coffee centric that I canít really say. Wonderful roasted coffee aromas, good body, little heat. Nice brew. Wish list cross off."

Cunningham (4929) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2014
Hazy amber color with a fine tan head. Looks nice. Ok lacing. Nice aroma for coffee lovers also. I quess this beer is nothing worth trying for those who do not like coffee. Lovely smooth coffee and nutty aroma. Solid body. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Balanced and nice. Soft carbonation. Lots off coffee in the flavor as well. What a surprise. Balanced with some caramel and mild nutty. Maybe a bit one dimensional. But the caramel touch gave it something extra. Lovely dessert sipper.

Bottled from Systembolaget Brown with a beige, bubbly head. Loads of coffee-beans in the aroma. Flavour like cold coffee with some chocolate and coffee grounds. Rather pleasant!
