In 2015, “X” will mark the spot for Boulevard Brewing Co.
As part of its published 2015 release calendar, the Kansas City, Mo.-based brewery will be releasing a new beer in its Smokestack Series named Imperial Stout X – Coffee. Coming in at 11 percent ABV, the new beer uses the brewery’s Imperial Stout as its base, then incorporates Ethiopian Sidamo coffee from The Roasterie, which is also based in Kansas City.
Imperial Stout X – Coffee will also be the first of four “X” releases that Boulevard will release in 2015 that sets itself apart by using “…a key ingredient brewed into each of several different limited editions,” according to the label. The release calendar also shows that there will be three additional “X” releases after the Imperial Stout X – Coffee: one released in June that is aged in rum barrels, one released in September and one released in December. Next year will also bring two different Love Child beers as well as several new seasonal and year-round beers.
According to the brewery, Imperial Stout X – Coffee will be packaged in 750ml bottles exclusively and is scheduled to be released in February of next year.
