Enjoyed this on tap at the Tap House Grill in Westmont, IL in a 10oz snifter.
A - Mahogany, opaque, small ring of mocha head around rim, small light lacing
S - Fresh ground coffee, toffee, carmel and chocolate
T - Fresh coffe, sweet milk chocolate, toffee, carmel, butterscotch. Initially it starts bitter - finish is quite sweet.
M - low/med body, coffee is very pleasant, not frothy or creamy, coffee does linger
O - Wow is the coffee flavor nice! Blends very nicely with the sweetness of the chocolate and butterscotch. If only the body was thicker. This does have potential to be Fantastic. ABV is hidden so well. Nose again, has that excellent coffee notes. But until things thicken up- it will stand as 'good'

750 ml bottle, batch 2013-3, best by 10-2013. Pours copper amber with a huge pillowy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is strong roast coffee with some sweet lactic chocolate.
The flavor is some sweet malt with a lot of roast coffee and some acidic bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, pretty one-dimensional, but a nice coffee beer.

3.75/5 rDev -6.5%
Appearance: dark brown in color, 1 and a half inch head, medium carbonation, cloudy
Smell: coffee roast and toasted malt
Taste: deep roasted coffee, light cream, chocolate, and sugar
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium body, sweet and rich with light bitterness
Overall: I have had a lot of great coffee beers lately. While this does not achieve greatness it is solid and very food. The coffee is prominent in this one, but reserved just enough from making it a coffee bomb. Glad I was able to have this.

Huge carbonation during pour. Chocolate brown in appearance. Coffee on the nose and nothing else. Velvety mouthfeel. Dark roasted coffee flavor, slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Similar to Founders Breakfast Stout, but not as intense in flavor and aroma. Very good.

Another fine creation by the team at Boulevard. The coffee ale is a great after dinner apertiff. The beer poured a deep redish amber with off white head that left some lacing. The scent was espresso driven with sweet hints. The taste had dark chocolate mixed with coffee....a mochachinno. Honestly....mix some coffee with B's chocolate ale....and you have the coffee ale. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall, this is a great beer.

Delicious Beer. Easy to drink, great Coffee presence with malt, chocolate, and some nuttiness. I can drink this beer all day, which is dangerous as a 9.2%, but i love coffee, and i love beer, and this is a beautiful union of the two. If this turns out to be a limited edition i will be sad, but i am buying it up now.
