A Note on This Beer
Full of powerful cacao nibs from one of America’s top chocolatiers, Boulevard’s Chocolate Ale appeals to anyone who appreciates gourmet desserts of the highest caliber. The lure for this limited release is so strong, each year lines form where it is available and it doesn’t stay in stock for long.
This year Boulevard gives it an extra dose of luxury, infusing it with concentrated raspberries to create the new With Raspberry version.
This lightly colored ale features a zesty tart blast of fruit that would be lost in a Stout or Porter. More tart than sweet, vodka-soaked berries take the center stage with dark, espresso-like chocolate shavings that help its 9.2% ABV go down easy.
Striking bright red in the glass, the fruit is visually apparent. Floral notes of raspberries intertwine with soft milk chocolate aromas. Digging in, its flavors mature with a semi-sweet bite as the flavors of a raspberry fruit gem are dipped in cacao nib-filled bittersweet chocolate. Its full, Belgian Ale-like body is cut by fresh fruit juice brightness.
Even though it was recently launched, Chocolate Ale with Raspberry is already ranked one of the top Chocolate beers on Ratebeer. By bringing the gourmet chocolate world into the realm of delicious craft, it is a decadent treat that opens the door to many new drinkers to craft beer as well as sophisticated veterans.
