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.

ryecatcher (990) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2013
750mL bottle. Pours a dark um... coffee color with a massive, off white head. Nose is malt and a hint of Joe. Mouth is medium bodied, creamy and chock full of nuts, toffee, malt and Nescafe. Like the Red Wings fan said, it is a bit one-dimensional, but if there was ever a beer that would be perfect with a maple bar (or any dougnut for that matter) this would be it. Let’s go Rangers!

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2013
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.

Scopey (8790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle from Habershams, Savannah. It pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is big on the coffee, chocolate, earth and wood. The taste is coffee, earth, some acidity, wood and cocoa with sweet coffee on the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty one-dimensional really. Couldn’t drink more than a glass of this.

Overall: Boiled sweet peppers. Not very nice.
Note: Bottle 650 ml at a De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2013-08-24.

fiercepanda (608) - Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2013
A cloudy dark brown beer with a soda head. The aroma is roasted malt, oats, herbal, and, of course, coffee. The flavor is oats, prunes, licorice, and coffee which lingers as a bitter finish. I’m glad to see they went a different way with this coffee ale, but it was somewhat underwhelming.

rxeight (1848) - Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Decent amount of coffee, but the beer is really light and the body is like water. More of a coffee brown.

olsvammel (4008) - 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.

Nsanders (708) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2013
750 mL bottle. Medium brown with a huge tan head. Toffee, light roasted coffee, dry earthy hops, and light vanilla. Comes on quite bitter, but fades to a dry sweetness. Body is medium with strong carbonation presence.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Danish tasting session
Brown color, dark, with quick head. Smell of old coffee pot and spirit. Lean body, overly carbonated (possible refermentation in bottle?), dry caramel flavor with some chocolate and coffee; the closes thing to this is a coffee filled truffle; ordinary bitterness; the coffee overall provides a feeling of stale water and dust.
Far from exciting.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pepper (jalapeno) and sweet aroma. Sweet malt flavor; with caramel, roasted malt and coffee. roasted flavors are overpowered by sweetness. No alcohol flavor.
