Second beer of the Run Before You Crawl 5K and Pub Crawl. There are some stouts that have coffee flavors which can be enjoyed by those who don’t love coffee. This beer is coffee incarnate. Looks like coffee, smells like a coffee, and tastes a helluva lot like coffee. Luckily, I enjoy a good cup of joe. Alcohol is well hidden. I did not realize this clocked in at 9.3% until I logged into Ratebeer. Draft - Augustine’s - Atlanta, GA HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
750 ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a small, off-white head. Big aroma of coffee. Some mild caramel and toffee notes, as well as fruit notes. Flavor of strong, rich, delicious coffee. I mean, this beer is simply but clear: it’s coffee. It’s an ale. And it does work. This is nice. Full bodied, lots of rich coffee. Nice beer. ads135 (5215) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 13, 2013
A coffee ALE? Not a coffee stout or porter? Reread the label and then drink up. This beer is excellent. The coffee is not subtle, but neither is it overwhelming. Sweet and pungent. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2013
bottle-conditioned 750ml. thick tan colored head on a lightly hazed dark brown body. cold coffee nose with chocolate cookie and dark cracker malts and faint metallic notes that seem to diminish after a short time. rich, frothy and soft carbonation provides explosive uplift of a sweet, peppery and tantalizing roasted coffee beans with ample alcohol warmth, fullness and sweetness in the finish with mild to moderate roasted bean astringency and noble hop bitterness. a lovely texture, sure enough that’s something you can count on from Boulevard. I didn’t hesitate to buy but it took me a few days to come around to opening a 9% coffee beer, but here I sit enjoying the hell out of it. the coffee presentation is rich and flavorful and the body and carbonation are lush and satisfying. it’s a play of warming and sweet alcohol with a soil / wet grain / oat richness and vibrant carbonation. a novel beer executed well.

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.

On tap bier thirty pours out brown ripped with a sand head. Heavy coffee aroma along with some brown sugar sweetness and rich malts. Taste is all coffee and sweetness. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2013
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. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2013
The appearance of this beer fuses a cloudy brown color with an immense sudsy head and some sediment. The aroma matches coffee with bread yeast, and the taste complements it with the midly sweet and slightly bitter mixture. Furthermore, the palate combines an average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a long dry and bitter finish. Cybercat (6346) - Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2013
Comes out of the tap an opaque mocha brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled wheat head. Quality coffee dominates the robust aroma. Coffee or beer? Who gives a shish-kebab. Malty flavor has a strong, almost overpowering note of high-end coffee, with hints of caramel, hops and rye. This is almost a stout! Firm texture has a good fizz, very lively. The best part of waking up is something like this in your cup. Or stein. Beer: It’s not just for breakfast anymore! :D beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - APR 4, 2013
bottled. pours mohogany with a light tan head. aromas of toast, coffee, and brown sugar. a touch of bitterness, medium bodied, thick texture. finish is lasting, yet surprisingly coffee is not formost. its a burnt toast overall decent and well balanced, but nothing special.
