Poured from bottle to an Boulevard tulip. Batch 2013-1.
A: Deep mahogany with ruby hues, thick foamy copper head with great retention, lots of particulate and lively carbonation.
S: Dark roasted coffee, oats, malt, rye, earthy hops.
T: Strong malt presence, The Roasterie's Ethiopian Sidamo coffee, rye, earthy hops, and sugary finish.
M: Full-bodied, a bit chunky, with a sickly sweet finish. Not as sickly as the Chocolate Ale, but still a tad on the sweet side for my tastes. Minimal hops bitterness. The 9.3% ABV is masked well.
O: Nicely done. Everyone and their brother has done a coffee stout, so I like Boulevard's tack in collaborating with a local roasterie on an ale. This is my second bottle, I had my first immediately after the release, and I think the flavors profile has evened out the beer is a bit better overall after a couple months on the shelf.
