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 Africas 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.

RSRIZZO (1973) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Shaker at 40. 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.

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 isnt 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.

bluejacket74 (1945) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch 2013-4, best by 10-2013. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with about an inch and a half tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Not surprisingly, the aroma is mostly coffee. Theres also roasted malt, nuts, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate noticeable. It tastes like coffee, roasted malt, dark bread, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and surprisingly a bit of citrus. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, its a little creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee brew, definitely worth a try. $12.99 a bottle.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottled, batch 2013-4 (best by 10-2013). Very dark chestnutty red- brown, head is very large, light tan, and mostly lasting. Very rich, nutty roasted coffee aroma with dark cocoa and creamy lactose undertones. Coffee notes follow through into the taste - subtle bitterness, mild creamy sweetness and a little bit of mellow leather. Big, slightly green/very mildly roasted coffee bean flavors in the immediate aftertaste that wanes into toasted hazelnut and pecan nuttiness. Dusty, slightly dry finish. The alcohol is dangerously well hidden. A very nice example of a beer that highlights coffee using something other than a stout as its base, allowing primarily the roasted coffee, not the roasted malt, to come through. Certainly one of the best coffee beers on the market Ive had.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Big and bold here in the coffee department. Amberish pour, little head. Aroma of grains, light coffee, and herbs. Flavors are light fruits in the start, fairly roasty grains in the middle, with a big kick of coffee hitting and lingering towards the finish. Pretty good.

GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Dark amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is bitterness of the roasted coffee. Sweetness in the aftertaste, but the coffee is upfront. The sweetness seems to grow as you drink it making it tough to finish the bottle.
