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.

Scopey (8035) - 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.

fiercepanda (605) - 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.

Decent amount of coffee, but the beer is really light and the body is like water. More of a coffee brown.

olsvammel (3793) - 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 (637) - 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 (15714) - 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 (703) - 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.

750ml served in a snifter 2013-4-10-2013 A - Dark brown with orange/red highlights. 2 fingers of fizzy tan head vanishes, leaving no trace behind. S - Powerful nose of roasted coffee grinds and brown bread, spicy rye, amaretto, spicy hops, grain husk, alcohol brings notions of hazelnuts. T - Cold coffee melded with heavy dose of bakers chocolate, roasted grains, toasted rye bread, tobacco, spicy hops show up mid palate along with amaretto, and some nuttiness. There’s a tangyness toward the finish, alcohol sneaks in on the finish. M - Light side of medium smooth carbonation, light to medium feel, thins out as it sets. It’s nice to see coffee in something other than a stout. Plenty of coffee with a spicy chocolate/rye backdrop. The alcohol pushes in a little but is expected. I don’t see this aging very well. Serving type: bottle 05-10-2013

While Boulevard is one of my favorite breweries, I didn't much care for this beer. It's a fairly boring beer lurking beneath some coffee aromas and flavors. It just doesn't come together for me.
