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.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Batch 2 bottle. Poured into a goblet. Surprisingly light brown pour with a huge head. Lots of carbonation on this one. Worried about possible infection here. Slightly lactic all around. But lots of vanilla, creamy coffee, light chocolate. Sweet but dry. Wonít be surprised to see reports of these gushing given a little more time on the shelf.

On the plus side, this beer lives up to its name with coffee. On the negative side it doesnít much resemble beer to me. Pour reddish bronze with a large tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, more coffee, some nutty malt, a bit of toast and no noticeable hops. It has a medium body with sharp carbonation. The flavor predictably has a ton of coffee - there is also a bit of caramel and nuttiness in there. The finish has some spiciness and way way too much coffee presence for me. This lives up to the name, but unlike most beers with coffee there is not really anything here to balance with the coffee. Great for coffee drinkers I suppose.

Sample of a dying keg. Heavy malt roast flavors. A bit of residual sweetness.probably would like more in the winter.

This is part of the smokestacked series. It is alright. Itís 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. Itís ok. Nothing to brag about. Does not or does not sit at all with the smokestacked series. Nedds some fune tuning. Passable. Iím kinda dissapointed.

ryecatcher (1291) - 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. Letís go Rangers!

RSRIZZO (1933) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Shaker at 40į. Color is a deep amber brown with good carbonation and a tall off white head. Aroma of deep roasted coffee with a smoky back note. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is sweet giving it a rich feel with light roasted coffee, caramel and just a hint of vanilla. In the after taste the rich feel turns sharp a little alcohol shows. Overall its a decent brew, I was just expecting more from Boulevard.

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 (11785) - 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. Couldnít drink more than a glass of this.

fiercepanda (615) - 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. Iím glad to see they went a different way with this coffee ale, but it was somewhat underwhelming.
