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.

ClubGonzo (3513) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear deep brown copper-hued body with a large creamy off-white head. Nice looks. Nose is medium roasted coffee, herbs, licorice, mild chocolate and hints of bread dough, alcohol and caramel. Taste is smooth mildly sour coffee tones, roasted bread, caramel, rye, grains and hints of dark chocolate and spruce. Full body, medium carbonation. A very smooth and well-composed coffee ale from Boulevard.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home on Thanksgiving day. Pours a hazy brown with an ecru head. Mild coffee nose. Flavors of coffee and tart cherries. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Effervescent finish.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Hazy dark amber with no head. The nose smells of stale cold coffee. Thankfully the flavor has a bit of chocolate and roasted malt biscuitiness, as well as a firm touch of coffee throughout, unfortunately the coffee note is the same as the aroma but not as off putting; like room temperature coffee gone stale.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Lots of coffee in the smell. Light body with coffee. The coffee remains in my mouth for a while. If you like coffee this should suit you well.

RickTStiles (660) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours clear dark brown with a lasting off white head. Woody coffee aroma. Taste is a bit acidic with a strong coffee presence. A bit damp and bitey. Finish is strong and sweet.

floydslip (138) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Tootsie Roll brown beer with a foamy tan head that sets up in peaks. Pleasant nose of light roast coffee, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Prominent coffee flavor up front, including a coffee bitterness, which then develops into a longer lasting hop bitterness. Under notes of milk chocolate, vanilla, and wood create a semi-sweet beer overall. Lightly carbonated with a creamy mouth feel this is an enjoyable beer with good flavor and some unique characteristics. Would definitely drink this again.

burg326 (3244) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Poured a brownish color from the bottle, aromas of roast, light chocolate, and some coffee. Flavors are the same, light and thin on the plate, I wanted a little more from this beer but decent overall.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a large beige head. Aroma: coffee, green chili, cocoa, licorice, light roast. Taste: malty, milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee beans, dark fruit, candy. Quite full-bodied. The coffee works really well.
