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. Won’t be surprised to see reports of these gushing given a little more time on the shelf. vyvvy (6468) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On the plus side, this beer lives up to its name with coffee. On the negative side it doesn’t 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. brewballs (215) - USA - AUG 6, 2013
This is part of the smokestacked series. It is alright. It’s 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. It’s ok. Nothing to brag about. Does not or does not sit at all with the smokestacked series. Nedds some fune tuning. Passable. I’m kinda dissapointed.

750 ml corked & caged bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 9.3%. BB date 01/06/2014, Deep brown colour, moderate off-white to beige head. Aroma of malts and coffee, hints of chocolate and some fruity hops. Malty flavour with strong notes of coffee, a bit too much coffee for me. Some acidity, again hints of fruity hops.

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. Let’s go Rangers!

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. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2013
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 (14729) - 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. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
Overall: Boiled sweet peppers. Not very nice.
Note: Bottle 650 ml at a De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2013-08-24.
