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.

750ml from The Perfect Pour, Elkridge, MD. Glad I grabbed this one, since it seems to be one of the Boulevards that didn’t make it to NC (for whatever reason). Nice deep brownish-amber pour with medium carbonation, very little lacing. Nose of toasted barley, caramel malts, and very deep bean personality. Prickly mouthfeel accentuates crisp, dry notes. But the deep sweetness of the malts is still there, functioning almost like cream in the coffee. Roasts are subtle, and the character is actually coffee rather than just char. Well done.

Bottle. The look is clear, beige colored head, and bronze in color. The smell is coffee, herbal, green, more subtle coffee, berry, and nice. The taste is coffee, roast, Citrus, acidic, orange, nice coffee taste. Subtle and well put together to highlight the coffee bean.

Bottle. As someone who loves coffee and roast my own beans I find most coffee beers disappointing other than as an added flavor to a stout or porter. This is not the case with this beer. Aroma of huge coffee as expected, to the extent that is about all I get. A light brown pour with a small white head. Flavor is big coffee, with the malt taking a backseat but playing nicely. Well disguised alcohol, with just enough carbonation to keep it for leaning sweet or being too much. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Wow. Heat beer. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Very nice.

Chocolate, coffee, and bread in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Finish is slightly sweet, with just a hint of drying alcohol and some roast coffee. Another fine effort from a good brewery.

This is part of the smokestacked series. It is alright. It’s not in league with the Brett or Tank 7, but will suffice. Espresso aroma. Heavy, foamy head. Notes of chocolate and coffee. Caramel wash down. It’s ok. Nothing to brag about. Does not or does not sit at all with the smokestacked series. Nedds some fune tuning. Passable. I’m kinda dissapointed.
