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.

Draft. Pours clear medium brown. Tastes like rich smooth coffee, not too bitter. Hints of chocolate and espresso. Very tasty and we’ll done. Smells like rich brewing coffee. Light body and medium carbonation.

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.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Batch 2 bottle. Poured into a goblet. Surprisingly light brown pour with a huge head. Lots of carbonation on this one. Worried about possible infection here. Slightly lactic all around. But lots of vanilla, creamy coffee, light chocolate. Sweet but dry. Won’t be surprised to see reports of these gushing given a little more time on the shelf.

Mahogany pour with a huge off-white head. Banana, toast, and sweet malt. Notes of coffee and chocolate, mild earthiness, and a hint of roast. Nice malty sweetness, banana, toast, and a touch of chocolate. Quite mild coffee, a hint of vanilla, and a touch of roast.

On tap at The Mayor of Old Town. Brown color and clear with a strong coffee aroma and flavor. Very smooth flavor with a nice roast and light cocoa. Light to medium body with a smooth soft feel. Pretty damn tasty.

Jerm719 (131) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Good amount of head. Nice nutty coffee aromas. Good choice of hops. Very nice finish not too sweet or dry. Well done. Happy to see a good coffee ale instead of the usual porter or stout!

Ernest (6699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. 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.

This beer is AMAZING! Aroma of some strong roasted coffee that is very present. Pours a thick brown body with a very carbonated, bubbly head. Tastes like an amazing well balanced beer that leaves the palate with a mild creamy mouthfull of roasted coffee brew that is second to nothing.
