Drink of the Week: Boulevard Brewing Company’s Chocolate Ale

Monday is Valentine’s Day, and today’s Drink of the Week is the object of our affection: Chocolate Ale from Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing Company. Lightly roasted malts meet crushed cacao from Kansas City’s Christopher Elbow chocolates, yielding earthy flavors of bittersweet chocolate, vanilla and light spice and a hint of tangy fruit on the finish, all of which perfectly temper the brew’s 9.1% ABV. Released earlier this week in the Kansas City area, rollout to Boulevard’s 19-state distribution region begins on Monday. Visit boulevardbrewing.com for distribution details.
