750 bottle. Pours dark brown with mahogany edges. Smell is sweet caramel malts, big roast coffee, nutty, breadiness. Taste is creamy caramel malts, very smooth roast coffee without any burnt bitterness, finishing spiciness. Nice coffee brew that comes extremely smooth but just a touch thin. Still good and delivered for not being a stout. seymour (2096) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2013
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 isn’t 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.

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. bluejacket74 (1993) - 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. There’s 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, it’s a little creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this coffee brew, definitely worth a try. $12.99 a bottle.

Clear, color of cream soda, off-white head and ok lace. Strong coffee aroma, with hints of caramel and roastiness. Flavor is similar, with big coffee flavor up front, some cashew, oak and vanilla. Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy yet thin mouthfeel, and the coffee lingers in the finish.

Clear brown pour with a big beige head that takes forever to fade. Huge coffee aroma with some nuttiness and toffee. Taste is a beer version of an awesome cup of coffee with cream and caramel. It’s got a nice roasty nutty character to it with little bitterness on the back end. Velvety texture. Very good. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pours brown with a a thick khaki head. Aroma is coffee, sweet malt, and toast. Flavor is rich and malty. Some vanilla, caramel, toast, and mild coffee. Light acidic bitterness and a very creamy texture. 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.

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. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a large tan head, little retention/lace. Aroma of green coffee, chocolate, roast, vanilla. Taste is green coffee, bell pepper, chocolate, roast. Palate is a bit thin, slick, light bitter finish.
