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.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle @ Casa de Greg, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Holy fucken balls, the foam is out of control on this slut. No apparent sign of infection in the nose. Hazy brown appearance. Slight metallic, cola, caramel, a bit sweet, lightly roasted coffe aroma. A bit twangy, milk chocolate, mocha, light coffee, earthy, creamy flavor with a soft yeast presence. Pretty good but not as good as some of their releases.

hazy chestnut, thin cream head. Light almond and coffee hints, sugary but balanced. Sweet flavor, more coffee and stinging sugar. Overly sweet but moderate balance.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2013
750 ml Smokestack series bottle. Pours brown cola color with a very large foamy frothy khaki head that last, but eventually settles to a film. Aroma has roasted malt some molasses and dark fruit with the coffee fighting through. Taste has nice strong black coffee roasted malt some sweet cream and chocolate subtle bitterness and spice with alcohol on the finish. Palate is thin fizzy and warming. Really taken by surprise with this one, really nice!

Holmen1 (1999) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Ivar): en ren, mild og innsmigrende kaffearoma stiger opp fra et flott og tett skum (som dessverre ikke varer). I smaken sniker bæraktige og søte tropiske frukter seg inn. Totalbildet er enkelt, men dog so smooth and drinkable.

abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Large shared bottle from Kvadrat. Clear mahogany body with a small light brown head. Turkish coffee on the nose and in the mouth. Malty notes are present. Medium bodied and heavily carbonated. Some alco warmth.

gunnar (4865) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear deep nutty brown with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of brown bread and coffee, lovely. Smooth and filling mouthfeel, taste is light sweet, roasty yet mild coffee, lingering with sweet malty sidenotes.
