Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a small creamy off-white head, short retention and no lace

S- day old dark roast coffee, slightly peppery, also picking up some smoked meat character

T- straight sidamo coffee up front followed by some smoky notes, almost a meat flavor of smoked sausage. Slightly spicy and peppery rye with a hint of oat, light hop kick on the finish with a coffee linger

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- I liked the sidamo coffee flavor, the smoked meat flavors were a bit unexpected, definitely interesting for a change of pace
