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.

    750 ml corked & caged bottle in the Smokestack Series, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 9.3%. BB date 01/06/2014. Deep brown colour, moderate off-white to beige head. Aroma of malts and coffee, hints of chocolate and some fruity hops. Malty flavour with strong notes of coffee, a bit too much coffee for me. Some acidity, again hints of fruity hops.

    Damn near black pour, tight beige head, some lacing. Rich roasted coffee beans and a cup of black coffee in the nose and flavors, rich and nice mouthfeel, fair amount of acidity, then it smooths out with the oats and malted barley. Nice beer with plenty of black coffee flavor.

    Comes out of the tap an opaque mocha brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled wheat head. Quality coffee dominates the robust aroma. Coffee or beer? Who gives a shish-kebab. Malty flavor has a strong, almost overpowering note of high-end coffee, with hints of caramel, hops and rye. This is almost a stout! Firm texture has a good fizz, very lively. The best part of waking up is something like this in your cup. Or stein. Beer: It’s not just for breakfast anymore! :D

    I'm curious what this large but easy drinking ale would be like without the coffee. You get the impression it'd be good, but it's so coffee centric that I can't really say. Wonderful roasted coffee aromas, good body, little heat. Nice brew. Wish list cross off.

    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.

    Very clear, dark copper body crowned with a thick, foamy head that leaves bits of lace. Coffee grounds dominates the aroma with underlying tinges of roasted grains in the background. Toffee and coffee grounds are the immediate flavors with a slightly hop bitterness coming through at the finish. The more this warms the more noticeable the alcohol gets. Relatively light body; slightly fizzy; dry finish. Overall its o.k. if you are a coffee fan give it a shot.
