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 Africaís 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.

A coffee ALE? Not a coffee stout or porter? Reread the label and then drink up. This beer is excellent. The coffee is not subtle, but neither is it overwhelming. Sweet and pungent.

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.

A lot of coffee, really. But nicely balanced and beautiful coffeetaste. A beer a highly recomend if you like coffee.

Pours ruby mahogany with a large light brown head. Smells of coffee and caramel. Taste is strongly coffee, and not very bitter, with a touch of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Coffee Ale finishes with a silky sweetness.

Comes out of the tap an opaque mocha brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled wheat head. Quality coffee dominates the robust aroma. Coffee or beer? Who gives a shish-kebab. Malty flavor has a strong, almost overpowering note of high-end coffee, with hints of caramel, hops and rye. This is almost a stout! Firm texture has a good fizz, very lively. The best part of waking up is something like this in your cup. Or stein. Beer: Itís not just for breakfast anymore! :D

Draft at The Bridge. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam that leaves no lacing. Massive coffee notes on the nose but it smells less like coffee grounds and more like brewed. Itís a pleasant scent that really lingers. Behind that itís fucking delicious! You definitely get the coffee but is also nicely hopped which gives it a fragrant, complex flavor. Finishes clean. Iíve never had Boulevard beer that disapointed. They may be the most underrated brewery in the country.

Shared at CarterFest 2013, thanks gregwilsonstl! Tall corked bottle in their Smokestack series, it poured a hazy reddish copper colour with HUGE creamy, billowy beige foam, everlasting with nice Belgian lace. Beautiful appearance. A rare coffee beer which isnít a stout, cool! My kinda beer to begin with--a multi-grain Belgian farmhouse kinda thing--grassy, peppery, beady, tea-like tannins. Tart, almost sour acidity enhanced by the delicious coffee notes. Complex, layer after layer of unique and harmonious flavours. Truly delicious.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a slight amount of off white head. Aroma of intense coffee and hints of spices. Taste of chocolates and chiles.

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

A nice nose of coffee, maple, caramel, and a hint of tartness. Attractive brown body with a sufficient creamy head, lacing is plentiful. No doubt, coffee is the main player here, but nicely balanced. In some sense, this seems like an amped up Coffee Bender, which is very nice beer in its own right. Palate is smooth. I like this beer, not as some where the coffee overtakes everything else.
