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.

blutt59 (6036) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle, dark brown color with tan foam, didn’t have the high carbonation others have seen, pleasant straight forward coffee aroma and flavor with a hint of chocolate and raisins, touch sour on the finish

Murky dark brown complexion. Light brown head that fizzles away quickly. The nose is coffee, molasses, and brown sugar. Tasty.

djd07 (3895) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at Petrol. Pours a dark amber brown with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong coffee bean and roast. Thin mouthfeel with sweet roast and rye and nice sweet finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, very impressive.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Dark amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is bitterness of the roasted coffee. Sweetness in the aftertaste, but the coffee is upfront. The sweetness seems to grow as you drink it making it tough to finish the bottle.

Bottle. Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Caramel and strong vegetal drip coffee aroma and taste with a sugary coffee finish with a creamy slightly sticky palate.

[Bottle] Pours deep reddish-brown with a huge beige head that quickly fades but doesn’t disappear completely. Aroma is potent earthy coffee blended with a lot of chocolate. Taste is similar with earthy coffee followed by slight spice, although the earthiness ramps up and dominates as it warms. Really long finish, as is usual with coffee beers, medium-thin mouthfeel, smooth. Overall, a solid coffee beer that is much better done than most I encounter. Another winner from Boulevard.

10 apr 2013, bottle. Dark amber, clear. Nose is serious coffee grinds, some green pepper. Thin/med body and mildly fizzy. Fizzy espresso, creamy coffee. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
