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.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle... Clear burnt-orange pour with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a blend of medium-roast coffee, toffee and vanilla. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The Flavor is mainly of coffee and is lightly acrid. Balanced nicely, itís bittersweet. Finishes acrid, mildly sweet and slightly tongue-numbing (like Novocain). Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2014
750ml bottle, caged & corked. Vintage 2013, batch 1, best by 10-2013. Pours medium brown color, tall light tan head. Large carbonation. May be over bottle conditioned. Smells of cold coffee. Flavor of burnt grains, fine roasted coffee beans, a hint of chicory. For a Coffee Ale, this beer is of superb quality ingredients. Tastes like coffee. Tastes like a Brown Ale. Nice layers of flavor. Now I hope it wonít keep me up all night long. (4101)

Lovely beer. Thereís roasted coffee and malts in the aroma, as well as caramel. Flavor mirrors the aroma, in addition the sweetness and bitterness hold hands through it all. On the end is a warming alcohol burn. After dinner drink and coffee, all in one bottle.

ej (695) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Pours a clear brown, transparent in the glass appearing deep amber, crowned by a large tanned head. Aroma is fresh, bitter coffee, malts and caramel. The coffee aromas are really nice! Taste is roasted coffee beans and a bit more moderately roasted malts. It has a subtle sweetness that is balanced nicely by the bitter coffee and roasty notes. A slight alcoholic warmth in the aftertaste, but hides the high abv very well beyond that. Body is close to full and has a creamy mouthfeel and the co2 is just on the spot, witch is just a tad above average. Probably the best non-stout coffee ale Iíve had.
