Notes/Commercial Description:
Neighbors for nearly twenty years, Boulevard Brewing Company and The Roasterie share a passion for making extraordinary beverages. In Coffee Ale, our two celebrated brewing traditions come together in a long-awaited collaboration. Ethiopian Sidamo from Africa’s Great Rift Valley has been carefully blended with rye, oats, and malted barley, and spiced with Perle and Styrian Golding hops. The delightfully fragrant beer presents a glowing, tawny-amber hue. The clean, crisp acidity of the air-roasted coffee mingles with malt on the palate, lingering faintly in a subtly sweet finish.

I poured this from a 750ml bottle into a clean tulip glass.

Appearance: Very dark with a slight red hue when held to the light, single stream of bubbles racing to the thick foamy head that was about 2.5 finger tall. Good lacing as I finish the glass.

Smell: definite coffee smell, dark and rich and sweet. Chocolate and caramel nut come through nicely.
Taste: a good blend of coffee and malted barley and rye. Slight taste of chocolate comes through.

Mouth feel: crisp with a solid feel. Not overly heavy or creamy. In my opinion it could have been a little creamy but that is about the only thing it’s missing.

Overall: love the beer. A really nice dark roasted caramel taste compliments the rich and aromatic coffee taste. An Ethiopian Sidamo coffee is used according to the bottle. Boulevard has really got a great beer this time. I think it is a special release and might not be available again so I must go out and stock up.

In a league of its own. Poured into my trusty pint glass. Dark brown pouring . Thick head which isn't bad in this casei 1 1/2 to 2 fingers head. Coffee and malts of course sets it apart from others. World class in my opinion. Best beer i have from this company as my workplace carries this beer in 750 ml. bottles. Well done

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.

Poured into a balloon glass.

The beer is a deep ruby mahogany. A cream colored head takes forever to recede. Lines and spots of foamy lacing stay on the glass.

Aroma: Dry coffee grounds, flaked oats, malts, chalky cocoa.

Taste: Cold coffee, leading into a dry bitter chocolate. A hearty oat component adds depth.

Mouthfeel: Dry and medium.

Overall: A delicious brew where the high ABV is completely hidden. Awesome coffee component.
