Best by 10/2013. So happy to see this and other Boulevard beers popping up in California. Pours a purple-brown color with quite a bit of deep red. You can slightly see through it when held up to light. Very large, light-tan head with a hint of yellow that goes down very slowly. Scent is quite interesting...very heavy on the coffee, but not what you normally expect from Coffee Stouts/Porters...which is what I'm used to. Slightly acidic nose with some green apple and orange...some citrus. As it warms, there is a lot of citrus. Mellow hoppiness with a hint of booze. The coffee is the main aroma here, but there is a lot more going on. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and highly carbonated. Drinkability is fairly high. Overall, this beer is in a league of its own. Most coffee beers are in the form of stouts and porters...not this one. This one has somewhat of a Belgian strong ale characteristic to it...along the lines of a Dubbel (hence the green apple and whatnot), yet maintaing a heavy coffee profile. Very unique beer, and delicious to boot. High ABV is well-hidden.
